Dentistry can be a stressful field, especially if you have anxiety about the procedures you have to undergo. But with the right support and guidance, it doesn’t have to be.
A dental sedation is an effective form of support that helps you relax, overcome your fears, and get the dental care you need without worrying about it. That said, not many people are familiar with sedation dentistry.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a type of dental anesthesia that puts you to sleep.
It can be used for a number of dental procedures, including dental implants, endodontics, periodontics, and orthodontics. You may also hear it called “neurodental sedation” or “oral anxiolysis.”
The dental team will first plan out a sedation plan with you. This means they’ll choose the sedation method that works best for you based on your medical history, type of dental procedure, and any other factors that may come into play. Once you’ve chosen the sedation method, the dental team will then administer the sedation. This process may vary depending on the dental procedure you have.
