The Importance of Sedation and Dental Surgery

We recommend one of our sedations for most of our surgical procedures to help relax and keep patients calm during their procedure. At Rockwall Oral Surgery, we take their oral health seriously and want to ensure they have everything they need to have a healthy mouth. 

Sedation is a handy tool we use if they fear dental procedures, have a hard time sitting still, have a lengthy procedure ahead, have sensitive teeth, have a patient’s low tolerance for pain, and many other reasons. We offer sedation to keep patients comfortable and calm during whichever procedure they may be experiencing. 

Which Sedation Is Right for the Procedure? 

With inhaled gas or medication, sedatives help patients stay at ease throughout their procedure. We offer several different levels of sedation which gives patients options to suit their specific needs: 

  • Minimal Sedation: With this sedation, patients are entirely conscious but also completely relaxed.
  • Moderate Sedation: Patients are still conscious but in a much drowsier state. It is not uncommon for patients using moderate sedation to experience some amnesia, unable to remember parts of the procedure.
  • Deep Sedation: Deep sedation keeps patients right on the brink of consciousness. They may even fall asleep during the procedure.
  • General Anesthesia: Patients are kept asleep throughout the strongest form of sedation.

When it comes to dental fear, dental sedation options are the answer. Our professionals are here to help patients through it and explain their procedure to them every step. We want to make sure they get the best oral health and keep their mouth and teeth as healthy as possible! If they have questions about our sedation methods, we would be glad to discuss them before picking the right one for their procedure. 

Preparing for Dental Sedation Options 

If a patient has a procedure coming up, it is best to have someone drive them to and from their appointment. When they undergo dental sedation options, they will need a ride for most procedures. Sedation is a relaxing method to keep them calm while having a procedure done, and most of the time wears off shortly after their procedure. We recommend having someone with them. 

Our patients are our priority, and we want to make sure everyone comes and goes from our offices safely! It is essential to remember that dental sedation options help patients and keep them from experiencing a procedure that could hurt them or have them see more than they want to.
