Sedation dentistry makes even the most fearful to undergo dental treatment in a comfortable and relaxing manner. With Sleep dentistry, you can now put an end to all of your dental issues and enhance your self-confidence. With sedation dentistry, the time spent in the dental chair will absolutely fly by. Sedation dentistry has an amnesic effect that means you might have a very little memory of your treatment.

How oral sedation works?

There will be variations from one person to other depending on various factors. Usually, a mild medication will be given to you the previous night of your dental visit so that you get good sleep. Next day morning, one hour before your appointment you will be given a single pill on an empty stomach. Additional medication may be given to your depending upon the level of sedation you have achieved. Also, medications will be prescribed according to the time required to complete the treatment. Some may require a very short time, while some may consume more time.

Oral conscious sedation eliminates the fear and anxiety out of undergoing a dental treatment. Oral conscious sedation makes you stay awake and responsive but you won't feel any pain during the treatment. Oral conscious sedation is also known as sleep dentistry.
