There are sedation options available when major oral surgery is required. Not only are these available for children, but also adults that have to go through a procedure that is going to cause them to become scared or perhaps flinch when it is being done.
Make sure to learn more about the sedation options prior to the appointment so that you can choose the one that works the best for you.
Sedation Options OfferedEach dental office is different when it comes to sedation that is offered. It is important to think about what it is that you want to have before you go through with the procedure, as they are going to need to prep you for some of the options.
Local Anesthesia is a common method for having oral surgery. The patient is put to sleep and they do not feel, see or remember anything that happened during the surgery. This is one way to ensure that the person does not have anxiety throughout the procedure.
Localized Numbing is offered if the person is able to sit still throughout the procedure and have it done. This, of course, ensures that the patient does not feel a thing, but it can be scary for someone to go through if the procedure is serious enough.
Laughing Gas is generally offered if the patient is on edge and needs something to feel more comfortable about having the procedure done. Usually the localized numbing is also given to the patient so that they can feel more comfortable.
