Scottsdale Sedation Dentistry Calms Dental Fears
Sedation dentistry is sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry.” This is a type of anesthesia that relaxes dental patients and will make them groggy that some will actually fall asleep during the procedure. Dental sedation can be oral in the form of pills, Intravenous where the anesthesia is administered by IV or inhaled as gas. Dental sedation can also be a combination of the 3 types.
Sedation dentistry is used to calm patients that experience high anxiety or dental fear during dental visits.
It also makes it possible to complete more dental work during a visit and reducing the number visits necessary to get more complex procedures and major smile makeovers.
Sedation Dentistry is for people that have…
- fear or anxiety of being at the dentist.
