If the thought of having dental treatment makes you nervous, sedation dentistry is the right answer. Sedation dentistry helps patients get rid of dental phobia. Sedation dentistry is used to calm a patient so that they can successfully go through dental treatment.

Before going through oral sedation, our dentists do a thorough consultation to determine if you are an ideal candidate.
The treatment method calms your nerves but still allows you to be aware. Maximum comfort is ensured during the procedure. The type recommended will depend on the level of your anxiety, health and the length of treatment performed. With a light oral sedation, you will remain relaxed but still be alert, however, with moderate sedation, you stay conscious but your memory of what all occurred would fade. Patients may doze off a little but would wake up easily.
Our dentists make every possible effort to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable during the treatment. After the treatment is accomplished successfully, the recovery would start on the basis of medication that was prescribed. Some of the symptoms that are common after the treatment are temporary headache, dizziness, nausea or vomiting. But this may lessen with time.
