Sedation dentistry refers to the process of using medication to induce a calm or (in more severe cases) unconscious state before a dental procedure. There are many forms of sedation dentistry, but the most common are –
Oral sedation involves taking medication orally some time before a dental procedure to induce calm and reduce pain.
Also known as “laughing gas,” this form of sedation is administered through a mask right before treatment. This triggers a “twilight” state in which you will feel relaxed but still capable of responding to your dentist.
This form of sedation uses an intravenous injection to soothe you before a procedure. Depending on the type of procedure, you will either retain some consciousness or be entirely asleep for your treatment.
