may recommend IV sedation. Whichever form of sedation dentistry is right for you, you are in good hands at Riverside Dental Group.

Taking the Edge Off

Sedation dentistry makes all the difference for patients with extreme dental phobias. Lighter sedation is also helpful in cases such as children who are not able to sit still during delicate dental procedures, or elderly or special needs patients who are confused and distressed at their dental appointments. The benefit of light sedation such as nitrous is that the medication takes effect and wears off very quickly. This means you can go back to work or school on the same day as your dental appointment.

Patient Safety Before and After

When you schedule a sedation dentistry consultation with Riverside Dental Group, we will take a thorough health history to make sure that sedation options are safe for you. We will also discuss pre-operative and post-operative instructions. Depending on the type of sedation, we will make recommendations as to what and how much to eat in the days before your procedure, and when to stop eating and drinking altogether. We wouldn’t want you to feel nauseous or become sick when you’re out of it. You should avoid eating or chewing gum until all of the numbness has worn off from your dental procedure. Otherwise, you could accidentally bite your tongue or cheek.
