Sedation Dentistry is the use of sedation to make a patient comfortable during a dental treatment. It is mostly used during extensive procedures such as fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions, cosmetic procedures and periodontal treatments. It can also be used for patients with anxiety of dental procedures or who have trouble sitting still.
Sedation Dentistry is endorsed by the American Dental Association and is a hallmark of the technological transformations in the dental world that have given patients more comfort and ease.
Before using a sedative or anesthetic, it is important to tell your dentist about any medications or medical treatments you are receiving. Before administering any sedative or anesthetic, your dentist will talk to you about the process of sedation and pre- and post-sedation instructions.
