Why Sedation Dentistry?
What to Expect
Sedation dentistry is used to help patients relax and minimize their anxiety while going through various dental treatments and procedures. Sedation dentistry is the use of oral medications or conscious sedation (IV medications).
Before you start a dental treatment, you and your dentist will decide whether or not you want to use sedation dentistry and what type of sedation dentistry is best for you. There are two types of dental sedation: conscious sedation, and oral sedation.
After having a dental procedure done with sedation, you will likely feel very drowsy. Driving after using the medium sedation dentistry option is not advised, so you will need a familiar person to transport you home.If you choose to use the form of mild sedation with nitrous oxide, you will not experience drowsiness afterward, so you will typically be able to drive yourself after your procedure.

Sometimes patients remember their procedure, but these memories are often fuzzy and unclear.
