Tell Me More About Sedation Dentistry!
• Dr Lanning offers Conscious Sedation (additional training & licensing is required)
• First before performing any treatment that is potentially uncomfortable, you will be given a local anesthetic to prevent pain.
• We have Laughing Gas (Nitrous Oxide) available in all our treatment rooms. Unlike other dentists we never charge if you want to have "Relaxation Gas" at your appointments. Laughing gas makes most people feel relaxed and happy.
• For those who have a higher anxiety level we offer two other choices:
• Oral Sedation is pill-form that is given about one hour prior to your appointment. Patients having oral sedation are deeply relaxed and often have no memory of the treatment. Most dentists promoting sedation are offering oral sedation – otherwise known as Conscious Sedation. Conscious Sedations works very well about 90% of the time.
• IV Sedation is rarely recommended in our office. However, we can offer this type of sedation to patients who require it.
• Will I be unconscious?
No, you will be in a deeply relaxed state, and you will be responsive.
• Will I be monitored?
Yes, our team is always with you and your vital signs are monitored during the entire visit. You are never alone.
• Will I need to have someone drive me to my appointment?
Yes, due to the sedative effects of the medication, you will need someone to drive you to our office and home again. Your driver will need to sit in the office with you for the first hour while you are waiting for the medicine to take effect. It will be necessary for you to have someone stay with you until the sedative effects have completely worn off and no driving, operating other equipment, or making important decisions for 12 hours following your appointment.
• What else do I need to know about my sedation dentistry appointment?
We will make every attempt to schedule your sedation dental appointment first appointment of the day. We require that you have nothing to eat or drink a minimum of six (6) hours prior to your appoint. We ask that you wear comfortable clothing with short sleeves.
