What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to reduce pain involved with certain dental treatments. It can also help patients relax and overcome their dental anxiety.
When fear stops people from visiting the dentist, dental issues go undiagnosed. This can lead to more severe oral health problems which perpetuate fear of the dentist by being painful, uncomfortable and unsightly. Sedation dentistry steps in to ensure even those who find the dentist unnerving can visit without too much confrontation.
