Sedation Endodontics Rochester, Canandaigua and Fairport NY

 

Dr. Lepore and his entire team are certified by the state and have advanced training in several forms of sedation endodontics. Whichever sedation option you choose, they will make sure you are relaxed and comfortable. 

 

Nitrous Oxide Sedation 

Nitrous Oxide Sedation, often called “laughing gas” is a very effective way for Dr. Lepore 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. During the procedure you will feel extremely relaxed with a sensation that has been described as “dreamy”, but you will remain awake. Once the nitrous oxide is turned off, patients usually feel normal again within minutes and can almost always drive themselves home after the appointment. 

 

Intravenous (IV) Sedation

For patients who suffer from dental anxiety, fear of pain, gag reflex, as well as those who just don’t like the sounds, smells or sensations of dentistry, in-office IV sedation can be very effective and safe for endodontic and implant procedures. Here at Advanced Endodontic Solutions we are trained and licensed to perform IV sedation. 

Unlike general anesthesia, which is also delivered intravenously, IV Sedation in dentistry is a form of Conscious Sedation where the patient is never completely asleep. Rather IV Sedation can be described as a very relaxed sleep-like state.

IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on around you. The drugs used for IV sedation produce either partial or full memory loss (amnesia) for the period of time when the drug first takes effect until it wears off. As a result, time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not recall much of what happened. Many people remember nothing at all.
