Fearful about visiting the dentist? Sedation dentistry may be the solution for you.
Being fearful of a visit to the dentist is quite common. Often a conversation with your dentist can be enough to allay your fears that may be related to previous experience you or others have had with what are now out-dated practices. But if you are still unsure, sedation dentistry is an option you may want to consider.
So what is sedation dentistry? Also known as sleep or twilight dentistry it is an advanced form of sedation that uses a combination of relaxing and pain-relieving drugs to ensure patients are comfortable and pain-free during their procedure.
Usually the patient is not fully unconscious, but rather in an induced highly relaxed, sleep-like state. When you ‘awake’ you usually don’t remember much if anything about the procedure, it just feels like you are waking from a relaxing sleep.
