Are you an anxious patient? Do you dread going to the dentist? Do you put off your dental visits because you are so nervous? If so, we have a solution for you! It’s called sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during their dental procedure. Some patients even fall asleep during the procedure.
Sedation dentistry is safe and effective. The medication used, either inhaled or taken orally, relaxes the patient. Some patients have even described it as feeling like a dream or floating on cloud nine. The effects of it wear off quickly, so the patient is able to drive themselves home after their procedure.
