Local anesthesia (Novocaine) is the most common form of sedation drugs used. It can often be combined with Laughing Gas, oral sedatives, or IV sedation to provide the most comfortable experience.
Sedation at the dentist consists of using relaxing dentist-provided drugs to help a patient relax while undergoing a dental procedure.
A sedation dentist is approved to offer relaxants during a dental procedure to help calm the nerves of the patient to make the dental work comfortable and relatively painless.
Depending on the strength of the sedation medication, it can last anywhere from 1 hour (the lowest strength) to 2-4 hours (the highest strength).
Dentists who are approved to perform sedation dentistry can offer oral sedation to a patient.
