The mere thought of going to the dentist can give some people anxiety. Sedation dentistry is increasingly popular as an option to help people relax during dental procedures.
Most people think sedation dentistry involves getting “knocked out” and being unconscious. Although it is an option, most sedatives can be administered to reduce anxiety and allow the patient to stay awake through the procedure. Patients may experience some sleepiness while medicated so it’s important that the patient has someone accompany them to and from the dental office.
Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?
- Reduced anxiety
- Minimal side effects
- Can be administered by dentist
- No needles with oral sedatives
