Discussions that mention valium

Dental Health board

Ask for full sedation if you want this entirely pain free - they put you to sleep and you wake up a few minutes later and its all over. They usually use a shot of valium to put you out completely.

I had laughing gas when I got implants and even though it does make you laugh I still felt the pain somewhat - and they used local shots (novacaine) as well and I felt them too. And I found the nose gear you have to wear during laughing gas very uncomfortable - I felt like it prevented me from breathing and it was quite heavy - or at least felt that way.

Keep in mind there will be some post-op pain or soreness with either types of sedation due to the extraction of the tooth itself.
