Oral Sedation

During dental treatments, sedation dentistry makes you feel at peace, calm, and relaxed. Because of the moderate dose of sedation, you are technically still awake but are also extremely relaxed. Due to the short-term amnesia (forgetfulness) it induces, sometimes known as “twilight sleep,” where you become less sensitive to pain without losing consciousness, it is also sometimes referred to as conscious sedation dentistry.

Who requires dental sedation?

Sedation dentistry is beneficial for patients of all ages, including children. Dentists frequently suggest this choice for those who have:

  • dental anxiety
  • a fear of going to the dentist.
  • extreme sensitivity in the gag reflex.
  • a concern for needles (aichmophobia).
  • extremely sensitive teeth.
  • claustrophobia while seated in the dental chair.
  • local anesthesia sensitivity has decreased.
  • Difficulty controlling movements.
  • Special needs (including physical, cognitive or behavioral).
