What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry, a specialty of Dr. Chow, is the administering of medications or nitrous oxide to help a person relax and feel no pain during a dental procedure. You can be awake and relaxed, or you can sleep through a procedure, waking up when it's over. It is safe and can be used on almost any patient.

Reasons for Sedation

Sedation dentistry is quite often used to help fearful patients relax enough so that they can benefit from the dental procedures they need. There are, however, other reasons for this specialty:

  • Patients who are nervous about dentistry
  • Patients with a low threshold for pain
  • Patients with developmental or physical disabilities

Can Anyone Have Sedation Dentistry?

Nearly anyone can have sedation dentistry administered under the trained, experienced and skilled hands of Dr. Chow. There are, however, some patients who may not be able to tolerate sedation. If a patient is too obese, there may be complications with air blockages. Patients who have obstructive sleep apnea may also not be candidates. Dr. Chow would consult with the treating doctor of any patient whose medical conditions may possibly trigger complications before giving approval to proceed.

Consultation Prior to Dental Procedure

As part of Dr. Chow's expertise with sedation dentistry, he will consult with you prior to your procedure. His discussion will include going over your medical history to determine that any sedation administered will be safe. His thorough research includes knowing what medications you may be currently taking. Rest assured sedation dentistry is safe, especially when performed by someone trained as highly as Dr. Chow.
