Sedation Dentistry in Las Vegas 89129

Most people get somewhat nervous about going to the dentist 89129. This is normal, especially if folks have had a bad experience during a dental procedure in the past. Some people even tense up at the thought of having their teeth cleaned. 

In response to these fears, sedation dentistry has been created to help people relax and get through their dental appointment. Sedation dentistry can be used for everything from serious procedures like oral surgery to a routine cleaning and exam. Sedation dentistry includes medications that will make you feel relaxed and sleepy during a dental visit, but you will still need a local painkiller, such as Novocain, which is included. 

There are different types of sedation dentistry:

    Inhaled Sedation

    Inhaled sedation is when you breathe nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) combined with oxygen through a mask. Your dentist 89129 can control the amount of inhaled sedation. Because the gas wears off quickly, you can usually drive yourself home. 

    Oral Sedation

    Oral sedation is when you take a pill to relax. Usually, the dentist will give you a pill called “Halcion” an hour before your procedure. This kind of pill will make you drowsy, but you'll still be awake. Some people actually fall asleep during a dental procedure, but can be easily awoken. 

    Injected Sedation

    IV sedation is when you get the sedation through an IV, which goes into your arm. The major advantage with this type of sedation is that the dentist can control exactly how much sedation you’re supposed to have. If you have ever been to a hospital and had an IV, this is just like that.

These types of sedation we’ve listed so far are also called conscious sedation. This means you can respond to vocal commands such as “open your mouth wider.” Afterwards, you may require help getting home, so you may want to bring a friend. Sometimes, you may not remember what happened while you were sedated. 

General Anesthesia

With deep sedation, also known as general anesthesia, you will be given medications that will make you almost unconscious or totally unconscious during the procedure. While you are under general anesthesia, the effects of the anesthesia have to wear off or are reversed with medication, before you wake up. You will definitely need someone to drive you home if you are under deep sedation. 

As we mentioned earlier, whichever type of sedation you choose, you'll also need a local painkiller to numb the area of your mouth that the dentist is working on. You can have both painkiller and sedation. 

If you have any fears and anxiety about going to the dentist, then sedation dentistry may be a great option for you. Don’t put off going to the dentist because you feel anxious or afraid. Any serious conditions will simply get worse and could result in tooth loss and gum disease. 


★★★★★ Cheyenne Dental is the best dental experience I've had. The location is great, the office is clean / modern, and all of the staff are super friendly. Dr. Tounian and Dr. Tran and his team are great and spent the time to diligently help me understand my treatment, expectations, etc. With that being said, I was in and out in a breeze. The results show and I couldn't be any more happy. If you are looking for the best dentist in Las Vegas, I highly recommend Cheyenne Dental.

★★★★★ I am absolutely terrified of the dentist. So much so that I had not been in a really long time. When we moved to Las Vegas in 2009 I was referred to Dr. Tran at Cheyenne Dental by my daughter's orthodontist. The entire office staff understood my fear and worked with me to explain every single step of the entire process. Dr. Tran is gentle, kind and thorough. He not only explained the procedures but also provided education regarding dental health
