Facts to Know About Sedation Dentistry

If dental anxiety is preventing you from getting the help that you need, then sedation dentistry might be just the perfect solution for you. But what exactly is sedation dentistry? Here’s everything you need to know.

Key takeaway:

There are different types of sedation including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, moderate sedation and general anaesthesia.

All types of sedation dentistry are safe for your general well-being and teeth.

Light sedation is all you need to ease dental anxiety; you’ll be comfortable yet awake during exams and procedures, and can drive home afterward.

Talk to your dentist about your anxieties, so you can get treatment you need to keep teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime.
