What is sedation dentistry?
Although modern dentistry is virtually pain-free, dental phobia is remarkably common. Some people even put off much-needed dental work due to their fears, ultimately resulting in far more extensive and expensive procedures than would otherwise have been the case. Fortunately, sedation dentistry can help.
Sedation dentistry allows you to obtain dental work in a deeply relaxed state. Your options include nitrous oxide, which wears off almost immediately after the procedure, oral or IV sedation, which are deeper and require you to rest for the remainder of the day, and even general anesthesia, which renders you unconscious and requires a 24-hour recovery period. Your dentist will help you decide which solution is best for you.
