Ease Anxiety When Going to the Dentist - KSL Studio 5 By Alicia Green on September 24, 2018

A routine trip to the dentist can make even the calmest person feel a little uneasy. Dr. David Stubbs from Stubbs Dental joins Brooke Walker with Studio 5 to explain how the right sedation technique could help ease your anxiety and actually assist in a quicker recovery.

Levels of sedation

  • Minimal: You’re relaxed and awake.
  • Moderate: You’re sleepy but awake.
  • Deep: You’re barely awake.
  • General anesthesia: You’re unconscious.

Types of sedation

  • Inhaled sedation- More commonly known as nitrous oxide or laughing gas.
  • Oral sedation- Oral sedation is used to achieve minimal to moderate sedation levels.
  • IV Sedation- Also known as intravenous sedation, this is used to achieve moderate to deep levels of sedation.
  • General anesthesia- Also administered through an IV and sometimes a gas mask the patient will become unconscious during the entire procedure.
