Scheduling dental check-ups on a regular basis is very important, not only for good oral hygiene, but also for your overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to dental and medical problems like gum disease, infection, tooth loss, and even heart disease.
Regular teeth cleanings not only improve your smile, but also play a vital role in good oral hygiene. In addition to daily brushing and flossing, teeth cleaning helps to remove plaque build-up that can lead to cavities and gum disease.
Most dentists have several sedation options available, and each one comes with its own particular benefits. The dentist will assess the medical history of the patient, the expected duration of the procedure, and the patient’s comfort level before recommending a method of sedation.
Conscious sedation allows to continually communicate, follow instructions, and cooperate during the entire procedure. The major methods of conscious sedation are described below:
Nitrous oxide - The dentist may recommend nitrous oxide (more commonly known as “laughing gas”) for patient who exhibit particular signs of nervousness or anxiety. Nitrous oxide is delivered via a mask, which is placed over the child’s nose. Nitrous oxide is always combined with oxygen – meaning that the you can comfortably breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth.
Laughing gas relaxes patient extremely quickly, and can produce happy, euphoric behavior. It is also quick acting, painless to deliver, and wears off within a matter of minutes. Before removing the mask completely, the dentist delivers regular oxygen for several minutes, to ensure the nitrous oxide is eliminated from the patient’s body. On rare occasions, nitrous oxide may cause nausea. For this reason, most dentists suggest minimal food intake prior to the appointment.
