Sedation dentistry involves the use of a range of oral sedative drugs for procedures that take an extensive amount of time. If you have dental anxiety or your children cannot control their movements sedation can help to calm and relieve anxiety. Some medications help create more tranquil, relaxed dental visits, while others control pain, and may even put you into a deep sleep. This can be done for patients of all ages.
The method and degree of sedation depends on the extent of anxiety and other factors (like age or type of procedure) that your dentist needs to consider. Be sure to discuss your needs with the staff when booking your appointment and know that when you arrive at our clinic, we treat every patient with gentle and caring service.
