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 extremely satisfiedMike, US, 27 Mar 17

I had 6 first stage implants by Dr. Marco (the younger). He was very professional and took time to explain all the details and address my concerns. They took many CT scans and panoramas after each treatment to insure quality. He also had the scans on screen in front of him to consult while he did the implants. Super terrific human being and cared about how I felt and my comfort. I never felt like a cog or part of a mill, even though his office is very busy and might seem like a "churn them out fast" operation; but it's not. I am extremely satisfied and recommend him to everyone who needs more than just a filling. Ultra modern clinic, with lab on premises. If they need to adjust or re-make a crown, there is virtually no wait time (a few hours). And since it is a busy clinic, I recommend you stay at Casa Marco, just a flight up. You can wait in your hotel room until your appointment is ready (since he runs late -- always). And staying there, you never need to leave the building because you can order out.

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

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 30 Reviews I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a first class clinicJim, Buffalo, 22 Apr 16

Root Canal, Tooth Extraction, Bone Graft, Two Dental Implants. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a first class clinic that can take care of all your dental needs. The value was exceptional. I narrowed it down to three clinics eventually choosing Costa Rica Dental Services and Dr Gadea Ramirez. My emails were promptly answered, I was able to email X-rays for review prior to my trip and all my questions were answered promptly. Walking into the clinic for the first visit immediately put my mind at ease and I realized I had made the right choice. Make no mistake this is a modern up to date dental clinic staffed by highly professional personal. Dr Gadea personally goes over your treatment and reviews all the cost with you prior to treatment. His follow up is as exceptional as his work. How many times has a medical professional told you how much he loves his profession and then gives you his cell phone number in case you need to reach him over the weekend. Couldn't be happier with my decision. Going back in the fall to complete the treatment really looking forward to it.

Dr. Gadea and his team are top notch !! You will not be disappointed !Robert, US, 12 Dec 16

8 Extractions, 8 Implants with bone grafts, 5 veneers, 6 Crowns This is a follow up to my first January treatment, when Dr. Gadea extracted 8 teeth and implanted the stems of the 8 implants with bone grafts. I came back in August, after the bone grafts and implant stems were secure and solid, to have the remainder of the work done. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Gadea and his team.I experienced no pain during the entire process due to his use of Novocaine and non opioid pain pills. He was meticulous in his work, even sending back to the lab one of the porcelain tops of the implants that he felt fit poorly. Even though the remaining work only took appointments during a four day period, I would suggest to anyone who has traveled to have work done, to stay an extra 5-6 days to make sure the fit is correct with no pain. I wanted a small adjustment for an area that I thought was too high and he took care of it immediately. Dr. Gadea and his team are top notch !! You will not be disappointed !

Both times I have been completely satisfied with the experience. This is a clinic of professionals that can compare with dental clinics anywhere in the world. I recommend Prisma services to friends and family all the time, and without qualification.

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.

Rubinstein Dental - Curridabat

(888) 848-7639 ext: 68582 700 mts sur de McDonald´s Plaza del Sol, Curridabat
Rating from 3 Reviews Very meticulousBeverly, Canada, 09 May 12

I visited the clinic in April 2012 and am more than pleased with the results. The prices were as quoted. I had 4 root canals with crowns and a bridge. I have had lots of dental work in my life and know when I have received good work. Dr Rubinstein took the time to explain all of the procedures and options open to me. He was very meticulous and I appreciate it. Thank you Dr Rubinstein. Those problem teeth are now pain free.

Absolutely recommended.Elena, Germany, 23 May 15

I went to Dr. Rubinstein because I had stronger tooth pain for a longer time. He suggested what to do and that really helped. The price was good and fair. He did what I needed and not too much. The clinic has very modern equipment and it is very clean and professional. The assistants are very friendly. Dr. Rubinstein is working really well. He explains a lot and replies to all the questions I had. I have been at other dentists in Costa Rica but I felt best with him. He offered some opportunities and suggested what to do. The work was done really quickly. Because I am travelling, Dr. Rubinstein offered to have my consultation at this time. And he did that. He replied to some questions I had and I am really happy about that. I can absolutely recommend him as a dentist.

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.
