may use IV sedation.

How can sedation dentistry in Riverside help me?

Sedation dentistry is a great option for patients with dental phobias, patients who need extra help relaxing in the dental chair, or children who are not old enough to sit still during delicate dental procedures. For these patients, we may offer nitrous oxide. The benefit of this sedation method is that the medication will lose its effect quickly after the dental procedure, allowing patients to safely take themselves home without supervision.

What should I know about sedation dentistry?

At your sedation dentistry consultation with your Riverside dentist, we will discuss pre-operative and post-operative instructions. For patients undergoing dental procedures using nitrous oxide or IV sedation, our Riverside dentists recommend avoiding eating at least 2 hours before your procedure, as this may induce nausea. Additionally, patients who have had local anesthesia should not eat or chew gum until the numbness in their mouth wears off. Chewing with a numb mouth could result in dental injury from biting your tongue or cheek, or biting down too hard.
