What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Last updated 6 years ago

Nearly 30% of adults in the United States suffer from dental anxiety or phobia. This fear and worry causes many to avoid dental visits, resulting in severe issues with both teeth and gums. In this video, you can learn a little more about a treatment that can help ease the fears of those with dental anxiety.

Sometimes referred to as anxiety-free dentistry, relaxation dentistry, and sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry provides comfort and relaxation for patients undergoing dental work. Sedation dentists use a variety of oral and IV medications that can help patients feel more relaxed and carefree during their visits. Patients remain conscious during their procedure; however, many do not remember the procedure after the medication wears off.

To learn more about this amazing type of dentistry, contact the team of expert sedation dentists here at The Smile Design Center.
