What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is performed for dental procedures for anxious patients by administering medications to help them relax. Many patients avoid getting the required dental help because of their fear of the dentist. Sedation dentistry is performed to ensure that nervous patients enjoy healthy mouths and teeth.

What are the types of dental sedation?

The different types of dental sedation are; inhalation sedation, for patients requiring mild sedation also called anxiolysis; oral sedation, by asking patients to swallow a pill; TENS, using electrical impulses to numb the area; topical anaesthesia, using a swab to numb the area; or intra-venous sedation, for patients requiring moderate sedation and general anaesthesia for patients requiring deep sedation. General anaesthesia is used for patients only in a hospital and not in a dentist chair.

Is Sedation Dentistry painful?

Oral sedation, inhalation sedation, TENS and topical sedation are not painful. Intra-venous sedation and general anaesthesia need to be injected and patients may feel pain when the sedative is injected.

When can I travel by air after Sedation Dentistry?

Patients should travel by air two days after sedation dentistry. They should take the advice of their dentist before embarking on their journey.   

How long does recovery after Sedation Dentistry take?

Recovery from dental sedation takes between 40 to 90 minutes. Recovery depends on the type of sedation administered.  

What after care is required after Sedation Dentistry?

Patients should rest for at least three hours after sedation dentistry. They should not eat for at least four hours, until the anaesthesia wears off. They should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should resume work at least one day after sedation dentistry. They should not smoke or drink alcohol for at least two days after sedation dentistry. They should follow all dietary prescriptions given by their dentist correctly.

Dr Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic

(877) 519-4628 Calles 28-30, Avenida 3 bis 2841, San Jose
Rating from 61 Reviews I am very happy that I chose this clinic.Lynn, Ashford, 10 Jun 16

I would highly recommend this clinic for much cheaper yet great quality dental work. I had 7 implants put in and had major bone grafts along with it. I chose zirconia implants since I didn't want the metal in titanium and thought porcelain may not last. In Connecticut where I live 2 different dentists gave me a quote for $50,000.00 for only 3 implants & crowns & bridges. This clinic quoted me $17,000.00 for 7 implants and crowns & bridges for many of my teeth besides the 7. Even with the plane tickets lodging & meals I couldn't come close to the $50,000 so yes this was a fantastic value. I researched online & this clinic kept coming up with good reviews so I chose it. First impression of the area & the buildings was not good as I was picturing Costa Rica with rainforests, waterfalls etc which is there if you travel away from the city. Once inside it was professional & clean. I had Dr. Marco who is an incredible dentist, honest, direct & willing to work with any concerns or needs which I did have. They even offer lodging upstairs from the clinic and another across the street from it which is very convenient. You can stay in the comfort of your room or with other people in the same boat in the dining room until they call you for your appointment to avoid having to wait in the waiting room. I am very happy that I chose this clinic.

Costa Rica Dental Services

Rating from 33 Reviews I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea!TW, US, 20 Oct 16

It is my hope to provide the reader comfort and reassurance in making this important decision. If you are considering dental treatment in Costa Rica, please read this carefully. For many years I pursed smile enhancement and considered many options. After many attempts to whiten my teeth with over the counter treatments, and subsequent disappointments in the results, I searched for professional help and decided to meet with Dr. Gadea for veneers, I am so glad I did! Admittedly, it was concerning to travel outside the US for medical treatment. However, after researching credentials I made the decision. While in the lobby waiting for my appointment, I conversed with other Americans who also traveled to see Dr. Gadea and they shared their positive experiences. My confidence was reinforced when they stated they had returned for further treatments; it was very reassuring to me. After recently seeing my local dentist for routine cleaning my dentist complemented the work of Dr. Gadea and stated it appeared the work was done by a US dentist. When I shared the price for the work provided, he was really impressed. The value provided for the work performed is excellent. In conclusion, put your mind at ease (as much as you can), make the right choice, as I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea! Thank you, Happy Patient from Florida

Costa Rica Dental Team

(888) 848-7639 ext: 69773 2, Provincia de San José, Curridabat, 11801
Rating from 3 Reviews I would highly recommend this clinicPatrick, US, 16 Aug 12

Implants Dentists After searching many dental clinics in Costa Rica, I decided to go with Costa Rica Dental Team because it is the only clinic owned and operated by an American. Everyone spoke perfect English, which was very important for me. The pricing was very competitive with other clinics that didn't speak any English, and my cost included transportation to and from my hotel, which was very convenient. They also offer a 10 year replacement guarantee on their website, which is very comforting. No US dentist has ever offered that to me before. At the end, I have an excellent new smile and a few extra friends from Costa Rica Dental Team. I would highly recommend this clinic to other Americans seeking a comfortable, easy to understand and high quality dental experience. Two thumbs up, way up!

Great customer serviceTerri, Costa Rica, 08 Oct 13

I have found the entire team at Costa Rica Dental Team to be knowledgeable and friendly, and experienced in all of their products and services. They provide a much needed service at a very affordable price, but then make it even better with great customer service, including follow-ups after your treatment. The fact that the dentists and staff speak both English and Spanish was a huge selling point for me.

my recent visits and the ones I remember have been excellentRoberto, Costa Rica, 11 Jun 16

Composite fillings when I was a kid. At that time of my life I was not able to brush well I guess and I needed a couple cavities taken care off. After approximately 18 years of having had these fillings done they are very difficult to be noticed, even by other dentists, they realize about the fillings with the x rays. Not only they still look great and natural, but they are perfectly functional after so many years. My parents took me there because of the good reputation Dr. Sauma and this clinic have had since I was not even born yet. I don´t really remember a lot from back then but my recent visits and the ones I remember have been excellent. I can certify they provide only top quality.
