You might be considering dental implant surgery if you are missing permanent teeth. Imagining pain is distressing for patients anxious about surgery or dental appointments. Can you imagine a calm place where your dental anxiety fades into serenity? You have every reason to believe in the power of dental implants in boosting your confidence. But you may want to find out if your bright new smile can arrive with the ease of sedation. Let’s bite into the dental sedation options you can enjoy with dental implants.
Do You Need to Be Sedated for Dental Implants?
While sedation may be unnecessary for dental implants, it can be a valuable choice. Sedation enhances your relaxation and helps reduce your anxiety. But, it’s worth exploring your dental sedation options, especially if they enable you to feel more comfortable getting implants and benefiting from their excellent look and feel.
What Are The Types of Sedation for Dental Implants?
An option for dental implant procedures is conscious sedation. It can help you relax during your procedure. Conscious sedation may include a mix of a local anesthetic and nitrous oxide. Here are the dental implant sedation options your dentist may consider for your procedure to help reduce pain and anxiety:
This light sedation, also called laughing gas, is administered through a mask. You’ll stay conscious and remember the implant procedure but not feel pain.
Moderate sedation usually comes in the form of pills that you take about an hour before your implant procedure. You can expect drowsiness, but you’ll be awake and can experience effects up to eight hours after taking the sedative.
Deep sedation delivers sedatives to your bloodstream through an IV. This sedation helps ease your nerves, and you won’t remember your implant procedure.
