Sedation dentistry offers many benefits to meet your individual needs. Sedation allows your body to relax more completely. This increases the effectiveness of local anesthesia. Sedation dentistry reduces the sensation of passing time. This can be very useful if you need complex or multiple treatments in a single sitting. It also prevents your muscles from stiffening or becoming sore due to spending extended periods of time in one position.
What to expect
Do you feel a high sense of anxiety when going to the dentist? Sedation dentistry can help. Depending on the sedative, patients can receive treatment at the start of the appointment. Once sedated, patients will feel relaxed and will have little to no anxiety. Sedation can be used with wide variety of dental treatments including many cosmetic, restorative, and surgical dentistry procedures.
