Sedation dentistry offers an excellent way to provide a safe and anxiety-free dental experience to those who are afraid of dental treatment. Oral conscious sedation involves taking some medicine by mouth before the procedure and topped up during the procedure as required.
Patients are awake, but very calm and relaxed throughout the dental visit. Most patients do not even recall the smells, sounds or procedure afterwards. Safety and compliance are important aspects, thus, a friend or family member must drive the patient to and from the appointment.
Some advantages associated with sedation dentistry:
- Anxiety is alleviated
- Few side effects
- More can be accomplished during each visit
- No needles
- No pain
- Procedures seem to take less time
