At New Day Dental in Pleasanton, you can experience calmness and peace of mind while at the dentist once and for all.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry in Pleasanton can range from nitrous oxide (commonly known as laughing gas) to IV sedation dentistry, to make you feel at ease and comfortable during your dental procedure. The type of sedation necessary will vary based on your anxiety level and the type of procedure you are receiving. Your dentist at Pleasanton will work with you to determine what is best for you.


What To Expect?

With nitrous oxide you will inhale the gas through a face mask. This has no color or smell and is not known to irritate the nasal passage. You’ll get a tingly sensation and general numbness throughout the body. It will put you in a dreamlike state but you will be able to respond and follow commands. This type of sedation is used for general comfort and relaxation. As this gas wears off quickly, you are safe to drive yourself home afterwards (but always consult your doctor before doing so).

The next level of sedation is called IV sedation dentistry. This is sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry”, although you will not be completely under. You will remain conscious and able to respond to commands, but the time will appear to go by very quickly. You won’t be fully aware of what’s going on around you.

After the procedure, you may feel various degrees of grogginess for the next 24 hours. Be sure to have a friend or family member accompany you to the procedure, who can then drive you home after. You will not be able to drive yourself. It is recommended that you take the remainder of the day to rest and recuperate.
