Sedation dentistry is a dental medication delivery method that helps patients to relax during procedures. It is sometimes called “sleep dentistry.” Patients remain awake with exception of those who are placed under a general anesthetic.
WHEN DO I NEED SEDATION?
Sedation is appropriate for those who have a fear or anxiety that prevents them from visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry may be appropriate for those who:
- have a low tolerance for pain
- cannot sit still in a dentist’s chair
- have excessively sensitive teeth or gums
- have an overly responsive gag reflex
- need a significant or very invasive dental procedure done
