The Dental Anesthesia Center: Sedation and Sleep Dentistry Saint Louis, MO

MINIMAL SEDATION Minimal sedation, an individual is conscious. This method is the lightest level of sedation. It involves a mild sedative, such as a Valium like medication or Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas.) Using this kind of sedation requires no additional training for the dentist. MODERATE SEDATION ( SEDATION DENTISTRY) Moderate sedation a person is conscious and is referred to as "Sedation Dentistry." Moderate Sedation allows the patient to simply respond to question. You are not asleep for sedation dentistry. A dentist is required to receive two days of additional training when administering pills orally. Intravenous (IV) Sedation requires at least 60 hours of training or a dentist can be trained as part of a residency program. DEEP SEDATION (SLEEP DENTISTRY) Deep sedation or general anesthesia is referred to as "Sleep Dentistry" (unconscious). Using this method, there is no memory of the procedure. Dentists who provide this method require a two year Dental Anesthesiology Residency or an Oral Surgery Residency. This is the recommended level of sedation for individuals unable to tolerate dental treatment for mental or physical reasons. The reasons that keep a person away from the dentist are personal and unique to each individual.
