Dental anxieties? Don’t Worry, we Cater to Cowards with Sedation Methods Available
- Posted on: Sep 15 2018
At Wylie Dental Care, Dr. Charles L. Wylie and his team of professionals in the Glen Dale, WV area provide a variety of sedation methods for patients to choose from. We understand how visiting the dentist may cause anxiety for adult patients, and we want to make the experience in the dental chair a positive one. With a variety of sedation options to choose from, we believe patients will be able to attend their appointment without worry. We only use safe forms of sedation, and we have different levels for our patients to select.
- Nitrous oxide sedation – the most common form of sedation used for patients with mild dental anxieties is that of nitrous oxide sedation, most commonly referred to as “laughing gas.” The dentist will administer this through the nose and it provides almost instantaneous relaxation for patients. It is easily and quickly reversed with the administration of oxygen to the patient, allowing patients to undergo treatments without having to arrange for transportation to and from their appointment.
- Minimal sedation – another option for sedation is that of minimal sedation. Also known as IV sedation, this allows the medication to be administered right into the blood stream. Dr. Charles L. Wylie has a Class 3B sedation license to provide minimal sedation to patients.
- Oral conscious sedation – oral conscious sedation is another method of sedation that allows patients to feel completely at ease throughout their visit. They take a prescription medication orally before they even leave for the office and arrive calm and relaxed. The dental treatments are performed and patients are transported back home to rest. This medication does require patients to schedule and arrange transportation to and from the office for their dental treatments.
