WHAT IS SEDATION DENTISTRY?
Sedation dentistry, a specialty of Dr. Jaskiel, is the administering of medications or nitrous oxide to help a person relax and feel no pain during a dental procedure. You can be awake and relaxed, or you can sleep through a procedure, waking up when it’s over. It is safe and can be used on almost any patient.
LEVELS OF SEDATION
Dr. Jaskiel provides oral sedation to his patients who need it or request it. Using either medication in the form of a pill, or nitrous oxide delivered as a gas through a facemask, he can provide the level of relaxation that is best for you.
- Minimal Sedation—In this state, the patient is awake but calm and relaxed.
- Moderate Sedation—The patient is conscious, but the level of sedation may cause him or her to slur their words and have little or no memory of the procedure.
TYPES OF ORAL SEDATION
Dr. Jaskiel will prescribe the best type of sedation for you based on your needs and physical tolerance.
This consists of nitrous oxide. Many people refer to it as laughing gas. A mask is placed over your nose and mouth, and Dr. Jaskiel regulates the amount of gas you receive. This is considered minimal sedation and wears off quickly. It is also generally safe for children as well. With this type of sedation, you will most likely be able to drive yourself home.
Given in pill form, this type of sedation is given about one hour prior to the procedure. You may feel drowsy, but will usually be awake. This type can be minimal or moderate sedation depending on the amount of the dose. Some patients even fall asleep with oral sedation, but they can be easily awakened. You should not drive with this type of sedation.
CONSULTATION PRIOR TO DENTAL PROCEDURE
As part of Dr. Jaskiel’s expertise with sedation dentistry, he will consult with you prior to your procedure. His discussion will include going over your medical history to determine that any sedation administered will be safe. His thorough research includes knowing what medications you may be currently taking. Rest assured sedation dentistry is safe, especially when performed by someone trained as highly as Dr. Jaskiel.
