Sedation Dentistry

What is Sedation Dentistry?

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry uses medications to help patients relax during dental procedures. This is sometimes called the "sleep dentistry", even if it is not accurate.

Patients are normally awake, except for patients under general anesthesia.

The level of sedation used includes:

  • Minimal sedation:
  • You wake up but in a relax mode.

  • Mid sedation:

  • (formerly called "conscious sedation") - you can say your words while speaking and you may not remember most of the operation.

  • Deep rest:

  • You are on the verge of consciousness, but you can still be awake.

  • General anesthesia

  • You are completely unconscious.
    The accompanying sorts of sedation are utilized in dentistry:

    What Types of Sedation Are Used in Dentistry?

  • Inhaled minimal sedation:

  • You breathe nitrous oxide: otherwise known as "laughing gas" -- combined with oxygen through a mask that's placed over your nose. The gas helps you relax. Your dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas tends to wear off quickly. This is the only form of sedation where you may be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.

  • Oral sedation:
  • Depending on the total dose given, oral sedation can range from minimal to moderate. For minimal sedation, you take a pill. Typically, the pill is Halcion, which is a member of the same drug family as Valium, and it's usually taken about an hour before the procedure. The pill will make you drowsy, although you'll still be awake. A larger dose may be given to produce moderate sedation. This is the type of anesthesia most commonly associated with sedation dentistry. Some people become groggy enough from moderate oral sedation to actually fall asleep during the procedure. They usually can, though, be awakened with a gentle shake.

  • IV moderate sedation:
  • You receive the sedative drug through a vein, so it goes to work more quickly. This method allows the dentist to continually adjust the level of sedation.

  • Deep sedation and general anesthesia:
  • You will get medications that will make you either almost unconscious or totally unconscious -- deeply asleep -- during the procedure. While you are under general anesthesia, you cannot easily be awakened until the effects of the anesthesia wear off or are reversed with medication.

    İzmir, historically Smyrna, city in western Turkey. The country’s third largest city and one of its largest ports, İzmir lies at the head of the sheltered Gulf of İzmir on the deeply indented coast of the Aegean Sea.

    İzmir is one of the oldest cities of the Mediterranean world and has been of almost continuous historical importance during the last 5,000 years.


    The city’s landmarks include the partly excavated remains of its agora and the ancient aqueducts of Kızılçullu. The archaeological museum has a fine collection of local antiquities. Situated near such famous ancient sites as Ephesus and Pergamum and numerous holiday resorts, İzmir has a growing tourist trade. İzmir is located in one of Turkey’s most densely populated areas.
