What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It's sometimes referred to as "sleep dentistry," although that's not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake with the exception of those who are under general anesthesia
The beauty of conscious sedation is that it allows you to relax during your dental treatment, and resume normal activities after your appointment. Inhalation sedation is best suited for cases of mild to moderate anxiety and is the most frequently used method. It is administered through a demand-valve inhaler over your nose that releases gas when you inhale through your nose. You will feel the effects within minutes and these effects are completely gone within minutes of the gas being turned off after your dental treatment.
Whether you require a dental filling or are looking for a complete smile makeover, sedation dentistry can help you achieve optimum dental health in the most comfortable way possible.
