Sedation in dentistry provides a relaxing and anxiety-free experience during dental treatment. It enables individuals' afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia. Conscious Sedation allows patients to receive safe, comfortable and anxiety-free dental care. About 30 percent of the population avoids the dentist due to fear, this all-too-common "dental phobia" prevents people from receiving necessary dental care, potentially compromising the health and functionality of their mouth and smile.

Benefits of Sedation

One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Therefore, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments. If you are reluctant to change the appearance of your smile because you are afraid or anxious about undergoing long or complicated dental procedures, sedation dentistry can make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve a smile you can be proud of. Also, because sedation dentistry addresses some of the fears that keep people from going to the dentist on a regular basis, sedation dentistry patients are more likely to receive recommended routine care. As a result, they are less likely to neglect their oral health problems to build to the point when drastic dental treatments become necessary. Sedation enables you to be kept awake throughout the entire procedure, but you will feel relaxed and likely won't remember much about your treatment.
