What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry uses medication or nitrous oxide to eliminate pain, reduce anxiety, and enhance relaxation during dental procedures. Also known as “sleep dentistry," this dental service can make drowsy, semi-unconscious, or unconscious. However, most dental procedures are non-invasive and don't involve physical pain. You can experience discomfort and teeth sensitivity during dental care routines like teeth cleaning. In this case, inhaling nitrous oxide can help reduce sensitivity and enhance comfort. Sedation in dentistry also manages anxiety, dentist phobia, and dental fear. Most people avoid visiting the dentist due to dental anxiety fueled by unfounded fears rather than physical pain. If you’re anxious, your Toronto dentist can use sedation to improve your dental experience. 

Here is all you need to know about sedation dentistry and how it can enhance your relaxation, comfort, and experience at the dentist.
