Sedation dentistry :The thought of going to the dentist gives you chills, you prefer to endure your agony and avoid dental treatment altogether, then sedation dentistry can help to take out some of that fear.
In Sedation dentistry a combination of techniques ranging from use of laughing gas to anti-anxiety medications helps the patient relax, become calm and reduce anxiety.
It makes you feel that the procedure which usually takes longer hours lasted for few minutes, so complex treatments like smile makeovers and extensive rebuilding procedures can be performed easily.
It can be used for any type of dental procedure ranging from simple teeth cleaning to surgeries.
Even though sedation can raise your pain threshold, some dental treatments still require injection with local anesthesia.
Sedation levels used range from mild, moderate to deep. Nitrous oxide or laughing gas is the most commonly used sedative in dental clinics; it produces some tingling sensation, numbness and gives an overall feeling of well being, but does not make you sleep.
