1.Sedation dentistry:

Terrified to go to the dentist? Sedation dentistry can be an answer. Sedation dentistry helps you to relax and sometimes fall asleep too. Different levels of sedation could be achieved with different types of sedation.

Minimal inhalation sedation. You breathe nitrous oxide (laughing gas) -- combined with oxygen through a mask that’s placed over your nose. The gas helps you relax. Your dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive and the gas tends to wear off quickly. Works very well on children too. This is the only form of sedation where you may be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.

Oral Sedation:
For minimal sedation, you take a pill and its usually taken about an hour before the procedure. The pill will make you drowsy, although you’ll still be awake. A larger dose may be given to produce moderate sedation. Some people actually fall asleep during the procedure. They usually can, though, be awakened with a gentle shake.

IV moderate sedation. You receive the sedative drug through a vein, so it goes to work more quickly. This method allows the dentist to continually adjust the level of sedation.

3.Management of Jaw joint problems and Bruxism (Teeth grinding)

  • - Bruxism is when you clench or grind your teeth, commonly at night

Clenching means tightly clamping your mostly back teeth together. The forces generated during grinding and of clenching cause pressure on the muscles, tissues and other structures around the jaw. This can lead to jaw joint disorders, jaw pain and soreness, headaches, earaches, damaged teeth and other problems. These symptoms are often collectively referred to as tempero-mandibular joint dysfunction.

Many people who clench also grind their teeth. Grinding is when you slide your teeth over each other, generally in a sideways, back-and-forth movement. This action may wear down or chip and break your teeth and be noisy enough at night to bother sleeping partners. Like clenching, grinding can lead to jaw pain and other problems.
