What is Sedation Dentistry or “Sleep Dentistry”?

  • A low level of sedation: you will feel completely relaxed but will not be asleep.
  • Moderate sedation: you will feel more relaxed, even drowsy and although not fully asleep, you may not remember much afterwards.
  • Deep sedation: you will wake up easily but will be more or less unconscious.
  • General anesthetic: you will be fully asleep/unconscious and will not be aware of anything.

What are the benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

Being sedated while you have dental work completed brings with it many benefits. Your anxiety will be relieved, you will be less aware or totally unaware of the procedure being carried out and your fear will be a thing of the past.
