Sedation Dentistry

Conquer Dental Fears With Dental Sedation In Timonium

sedation dentistry with nitrous oxide with a Timonium dentist near Towson“Some patients are more prone to being nervous or anxious about visiting the dentist and having procedures done, but at Steven W. Haywood, DDS, in Timonium we offer options to help even our more nervous patients to feel calm and relaxed so that they can get the dental care they need. We feel that a relaxed patient facilitates a quick procedure and a speedy recovery, and offer various forms of sedation to increase peace of mind when necessary.

The forms of conscious sedation we use allow a patient to relax and/or become sleepy. Normally, sedation does not elicit sleep, although some patients do become relaxed enough to doze off. To suit the unique needs of various people, we offer sedation in a number of forms – such as an inhaled gas, oral medication, or intravenous delivery with the help of anesthesiologists if you wish.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Timonium

This inhaled sedative is also sometimes called laughing gas, at it tends to make the patient feel somewhat giddy and euphoric, though not “out of it.” Nitrous oxide is delivered in constant flow through a comfortable nasal mask, adjusted as needed throughout treatment. In seconds, this gas effectively eliminates anxious feelings, allowing the patient to receive the treatment he or she needs comfortably.

Nitrous oxide, which has no side effects, is a safe and effective form of sedation dentistry for our Pikesville and Towson, Maryland area patients of all ages. Immediately after treatment is completed, the patient feels fully alert and can drive him or herself home safely, a feature that makes nitrous more appealing than other sedatives for some of our patients..

Oral Conscious Sedation for Our Patients From Towson and Pikesville

Oral sedatives have been used as a form of sedation dentistry in our Towson area dental practice with great success. The process of oral conscious sedation includes taking a pill the morning of treatment, usually an hour, or so, before the patient’s appointment time. The sedative causes the central nervous system to slow down enough to promote calm, relaxed feelings. Similar to nitrous oxide, an oral sedative will allow the patient to remain conscious during treatment, but without stress or anxiety. Because oral sedatives remain in the system for several hours, it is necessary to have transportation to and from dental appointments.

IV Sedation in Timonium

nitrous oxide and conscious sedation in Towson and PikesvilleOur Maryland patients are seen in our nearby PA office because we prefer to have an anesthesiologist perform moderate to deep sedation procedures with us. It has become the standard of care that deep sedation be monitored by a separate provider and we feel strongly that this is best for the patient. We have, therefore, established relationships with qualified medical providers should there be that need. Deep sedation is often a considerable expense and therefore should be discussed with us far in advance. Scheduling also is at the discretion of our anesthesiologists.
