Sedation dentistry is a comprehensive term that refers to the use of medication to induce a comfortable dental experience. Patient may take medication before treatment as well as during treatment to maintain comfort levels. At the beginning and sometimes during their procedure they will also be under Nitrous Oxide, a type of relaxation gas that will further induce their sedation. The use of sedative medications can help make you more comfortable so that Dr. Hsu and his team can work more effectively, accomplishing more in less time with great quality. Dr. Hsu has a variety of protocols available to customize to each patient’s physiological and pharmacological needs. A number of sedation dentistry drugs that can be taken orally have been developed especially for these purposes, subjected to rigorous research and testing, are safe and have been used for decades. Some of these can even help you remember little of the visit, preventing the sounds and smells from lingering in your thoughts.
