Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry offers anxiety-free dental procedures as the patient is in a deeply relaxed state, though fully responsive. It means something even more important: a comfortable experience - often with no recollection of the time passed. We often hear from patients who express their gratitude and delight in their first ever visit to the dentist without fear. Dr. Patel of Torrington can provide a totally comfortable dental experience.
All of the amazing advances in dentistry canít do a thing for you if you donít go to the dentist. Dr. Patel realizes that there are a lot of legitimate reasons why many people stay away from the dentist. Itís been estimated that almost half of the population has some kind of dental fear, from people who feel a little uncomfortable, to those who are so terrified they canít set foot in a dental office. Whether itís fear or something else thatís keeping you away, todayís dentistry gives Dr. Patel many options for making you comfortable throughout your appointment. Anesthesia can eliminate pain for most people, but sometimes thatís not enough. Sedation dentistry uses medications to relax patients which makes for a totally comfortable dental experience.
Levels of Sedation
Dr. Patel only wants to sedate you enough to make you relaxed, and let you have a comfortable experience. Thatís why he rarely uses general anesthesia, the highest level of sedation. General anesthesia is used for many medical procedures in a hospital when the goal is to have the patient completely unconscious. Dr. Patel only uses general anesthesia for patients with very special needs because they have a number of conscious sedation techniques that deliver excellent results for the vast majority of dental patients.
Intravenous Sedation
Intravenous sedation is a technique used by specially trained dentists to keep patients comfortably sedated through an entire appointment. Unlike general anesthesia, which also is delivered intravenously, intravenous sedation is a form of conscious sedation where the patient is never completely asleep.
Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous Oxide sedation is a very effective way for Dr. Patel to help you stay relaxed and comfortable during a dental procedure. It is a very light form of sedation, which works fast and wears off quickly.
Oral Sedation
Oral sedation is a wonderful option for patients as it allows you to be comfortably sedated through an entire dental visit using just a small pill.
