The Sedation Dentist Offers Multiple Types of Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry typesNitrous oxide is the most popular type of sedation dentistry, found our recent survey, with oral conscious sedation a close second. In fact, dentists are four times more likely to provide nitrous oxide sedation than pediatric dental sedation.

“Sedation is not for everybody (the dentists),” advised one dentist.

The respondents to this survey tended to offer multiple types of sedation dentistry.

  • 88% Nitrous Oxide
  • 83% Oral Conscious Sedation
  • 47% IV Sedation
  • 31% Dental Fear / Phobic Counseling
  • 22% Pediatric Sedation

Here are some comments from dentists:

  • “Couldn’t do without these two [nitrous oxide & conscious sedation].” (Texas dentist)
  • “It’s a wonderful option for dental phobic patients!” (Minnesota dentist)
  • “In many cases it is the only safe way to practice dentistry for pediatric dentistry cases and special needs and phobics.” (Pennsylvania dentist)
  • “It is wonderful that dentists are now addressing the issue of patient dental anxiety with sedation, but I hope we don’t attempt to treat patients with a one-size-fits-all mentality.” (General Dentist)
  • “It’s not for everybody (the dentists).” (Kentucky dentist)
  • “Sedation is very safe when used properly. Practice carefully and continue your training.” (Tennessee dentist)
  • “The dental profession should offer more programs for dentists who want to be able to administer general anesthesia.” (Massachusetts dentist)
  • “I.V Sedation is probably safer due to more direct route of administration.” (California dentist)
