Different Forms of Sleep Dentistry and Which One is Right for You

There are different types of sedation methods that we use at Ormond Dentist. The type of sedation is decided after considering various factors, including – the medical history of the patient, duration of the treatment, type of treatment, and the level of anxiety a patient has. Some types of sedation in sleep dentistry include:

Intravenous (IV) Sedation

In this method, a sedative is administered through the vein. It is commonly used for minor dental surgeries or less complex dental treatments. IV sedation tends to put you in a sleep-like condition, and you feel relaxed. You have little or no memories of the treatment.

Anti-anxiety medication or Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is one of the most common forms of sedation or sleep dentistry. Most patients prefer using this method for sedation. Our dentist prescribes oral pills before your treatment. The type of drug, dosage, and time of taking the drug are decided and explained by our experts after your treatment is finalised. These drugs help in relaxing, and several patients are given oral sedatives in combination with other sedation methods mentioned above if the treatment is required. Most patients sleep through their treatment and may not remember the process.
