Sedation dentistry is a medical procedure that involves the administration of sedatives to put you in a relaxed mood right before any dental procedure commences. In conscious sedation, you will remain awake throughout the procedure but you won’t feel any pain. The sedative causes you to relax and eases your fear throughout the procedure.
Fear and anxiety makes millions of people with dental problems to stay away from the dentist. These people believe that local anesthesia is just not enough as it only numbs the pain, but does nothing to allay that inner fear. At Advanced Family Dental, we understand this, which is why our dentists use conscious sedation to ease patients’ fear during a dental procedure.
