WHAT IS SEDATION DENTISTRY?

Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedatives to help patients relax during dental procedures. Dental sedation can put a patient at ease and reduce feelings of pain or discomfort. While it is sometimes known as “sleep dentistry” or “twilight dentistry,” sedation does not always put patients to sleep. Sedation can be administered at different levels, putting patients in a state of calm and relaxation while they remain awake and alert.
