Albuquerque Teeth Professionals Offering Sedation Dentistry

Albuquerque, NM – Sedation dentistry specialists, River Point Family Dental, announce they are offering sedation dentistry solutions to their patients going through teething challenges. Sedation dentistry is administered under either nitrous oxide laughing gas, IV sedation medication, oral sedation or a combination any of these methods to control anxiety and allow for a pleasant experience while a patient is undergoing a dental procedure.

“It is a simple fact that most people do not enjoy visiting their dentist for dental procedures.” Dr. Boyd Newsome, the lead dentist at River Point Family Dental, says. “The office can, fortunately, help in relieving this anxiety and making dental visits experiences less stressful or scary through the provision of sedation dental care.”

This form of dentist practice is particularly appropriate for patients too young to sit still as dental procedures take place. This also proves very helpful for patients who have near nervous breakdowns when they are about to visit their dentist. Sedation care is available for basic dental procedures such as normal basic teeth cleaning. It is also important to allow easier application of advanced procedures such as tooth extractions, placements of dental implants and gum surgeries. For some patients, the knowledge that this procedure is available is the only way they visit their dentist and they, in fact, look forward to such visits. The procedure does not make patients actually go to sleep, but rather it makes one feel like they just woke up from a light nap and rarely remember much about their experiences.

Minimal sedation means a patient remains fully awake, but feels relaxed throughout the treatment. Nitrous oxide is used to achieve this. Moderate sedation means a patient is awake but feels drowsy and often patients do not remember everything regarding the procedure they have just undergone. It occurs with a higher dose of oral medication and nitrous oxide.

Deep sedation is achieved in an outpatient general surgery or hospital setting. It is one tiny step above not having an ability to breath on one’s own or general anesthesia and could be fatal without careful monitoring. Sedation dental care is only allowed to holders of additional certification granted by the New Mexico Dental Board after they have gone through advanced training to gain accreditation to offer this type of dental treatment.
