Is Sedation Dentistry Safe

Posted on 11/22/2021 by Dr. Nick Raptou
Is Sedation Dentistry SafeGetting anesthesia is risky but when performed by a professional dentist then it is safe. Before any sedation, the procedure talks to the dentist about your medical history. If you are obese or if you have obstructive sleep apnea then talk to the dentist about it. Individuals with such conditions are likely to suffer from conditions related to anesthesia. Always make a consultation with the dentist before taking any sedation. It's critical to ensure that your dentist has proper training and qualifications to deliver the sedation you'll be receiving. If you want to be a wise patient, make sure you do the following:

Medical History

The dentist should go over your medical history with you before the treatment. The dental surgeon should also determine whether you are a good candidate for sedation and inquire about any current medications you are taking. This way the dentist will be in a position to advise you accordingly.


Among the things that you should ask the dentist is about the sedative dosage that is acceptable for your age and condition. You should also check to see if it's within the FDA's dosage guidelines. Knowing the training and experience of the dentist is equally important. Know how many sedation procedures they have completed in the past.

Speak and inquire

During the sedation procedure, the dentist will give you a form outlining the procedure's dangers. Examine it thoroughly with your dentist. If you are not sure about something, ask a question. Many children are reluctant to go to a dentist, leave alone having a dental procedure. If the child becomes too problematic, the dentist will use nitrous oxide to relax the kid. The dentist will monitor you during the procedure to ensure that you are safe. The dentist is supposed to have artificial ventilation or oxygen and other drugs that reverse the effects or impact of the sedation in case you will need.
