Many people feel anxious before and during dental procedures. It’s okay to feel nervous or even fearful when anticipating an appointment. We understand that our patients aren’t all the same, and we have great news: you have options! You can experience a comfortable, customized approach to dental treatment, with several different methods of sedation.
The most common forms of sedation used in dentistry are inhalation, oral, and intravenous. While sedation can make dental procedures much easier for you, it is important to understand that these methods are not pain-killers, and regular numbing medications are still essential. However, sedation will make every part of your treatment more enjoyable if you’re anxious.
