What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation medicines administered during the dental procedure will consciously sedate and relax patients. Patients will be closely monitored throughout the process by trained doctors and staff. Sedation dentistry is often referred to as sleep dentistry even though it is not entirely right because patients are conscious and awake during the sedation unless patients are under general sedation.
Is sedation safe?
With minimal or light sedation, it will induce relief of apprehension for patients to overcome the fear of dental treatment. The patients are closely monitored throughout the procedure, and the trained doctor administers titrated amounts of medicine, so it is very safe for patients. Patients will be evaluated before sedation to see if they are good candidates for sedation.
