Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, is a specialized field within dentistry that focuses on providing a more comfortable and anxiety-free experience for patients undergoing dental procedures. Many individuals experience fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist, which can lead to avoidance of necessary dental care. Sedation dentistry aims to alleviate these fears and provide a relaxed environment, ensuring that patients receive the dental treatment they need without unnecessary stress.
There are several levels of sedation used in dentistry, ranging from minimal sedation to deep sedation. We utilize specific technologies to help soothe our patients while they are in our office.
