Coquitlam Sedation Dentist

Pharmacological substances offer the base for sedation dentistry and are employed to loosen up and calm an individual for the timeframe of a particular dental health procedure. This type of medicine known as sedatives influence the central nervous system, typically those areas directly connected to conscious awareness.

The central nervous system is able to cause various degrees of relaxation ranging from minimal to moderate and profound sedation.

Very low - Generally indicates sedation of a person who has lowered stress and anxiety levels but quite easily yet react to physical or spoken stimulation.

Moderate - with moderate sedation the patient becomes quite comfortable, but will respond to deliberate arousal.

Heavy Sedation - the patient won't show any signs of conscious awareness and as a result be detached to stimulation.

At our oral health facility, we can achieve sedation in three ways:

Without any sort of long-term effects, nitrous oxide could drastically lessen a client's pain. When the laughing gas is discontinued, the effects are eliminated inside a short period. Very modest sedation is required with this particular method and there are negligible negative effects.

Oral Sedation or the use of pills might produce more profound results than with nitrous oxide, yet also has slower onset and more lasting effects. Clients might sporadically experience many levels of amnesia when sedation has peaked. There are usually more side effects with this variety of sedation.

Profound effects might also be assured with IV Sedation where the serum gets directly administered into the patient's vein. Clients commonly do not recollect details of the procedure when the drug takes effect. There could be many negative effects with this type of sedation.

Clients that opt for sedation should be healthy, have no history of allergies or drug abuse, and are not currently taking any other prohibited substances.

Originally the name Coquitlam was derived from the words, Kickininee or Kokanee, which is a fish coloured red and is similar to sockeye salmon. The place began as a "place-in-between" during the construction of North Road during the middle of 1800's, and its purpose was to give Royal Engineers within New Westminster access to the port's all-year facilities within Port Moody.
