Sedation dentistry creates an anxiety free environment in a dental office setting and during dental treatment. At Forever Smile Dental Care, Dr. Mehrshad Shelyan determines what level of sedation can help you. Whether you want to “take the edge off” or prefer dozing through your appointment (with little to no memory of your procedure), we have an option that is perfect for you.
When choosing a sedation method, it is good to know the levels of sedation that can be reached:
- Minimal sedation: This is the lowest level of sedation; you feel deeply relaxed but are awake and aware.
- Moderate sedation/conscious sedation: This is a deeper level of sedation that may cause you to slur your words and have delayed reaction times. You may not remember your treatment clearly.
- Deep sedation: This is the deepest level of conscious sedation; you may be on the edge of sleep or you may snooze, but you can still be awakened.
- General anesthesia (Major Surgeries In Hospital Setting) : You will sleep through your treatment; you’ll be unable to be awakened until after the procedure.
