What is Sleep & Sedation Dentistry?
What is Sedation Dentistry Used For?
There are different types of sedation available to our patients that are best suited for a variety of uses. Sedation dentistry can be used to take the edge off appointment anxiety or it can be used to put our patients to sleep during longer or more invasive treatment procedures. Dental surgery is a common reason for sedation and sleep dentistry to be used. Anxiety is also a common reason for us to prescribe sedation because a stress-free patient allows us to work quicker and more effectively. Patients who have an uncommonly strong gag reflex or those visiting us for lengthy and difficult appointments are also candidates to receive dental sedation.
We encourage all our patients to seek information and understand sedation dentistry. This will help patients (together with their dentist) make an informed decision on whether it is right for them. Your dentist is available for a consultation to help guide you through your options and make experienced recommendations.
