How safe is sedation dentistry?

If you suffer from anxiety when visiting the dentist in Mitchell, SD, you should consider sedation dentistry for future dental visits. Sedation dentistry can help you relax, reducing or eliminating the anxiety you normally experience at a dental appointment. 

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

With sedation dentistry, the dentist can use medication to help ease your fear and anxiety during a dental appointment. The type and level of sedation will depend on your specific situation. Your dentist will help you decide on the best sedation method for you.

There are different types of sedation dentistry in Mitchell. Most often, patients choose nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) or oral sedation, which means you will take a sedative in the form of a pill before the appointment.

As with all medications, people can react differently to sedatives. Our patients’ safety and wellness are our top priority. To help you have a safe sedation experience, we will take a thorough health and medical history before the procedure. During the procedure, we will monitor your blood pressure, heart rate, and other vital signs. 

Sedation dentistry is widely used and is perfectly safe for most patients. However, we want you to feel safe and secure in your choice of sedation dentistry, and we understand you may have questions about the process.
