What is Sedation dentistry? It is the use of special medications, in a safe dental office setting, that helps patients relax during dental procedures. It ranges from nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to general anesthesia, where patients will experience a decreased level of awareness or consciousness. It is not uncommon for dentists to recommend sedation dentistry.
At Southpoint Quality Dental, we specialize in offering this service to our more anxious patients. Even if a patient is not undergoing a serious procedure or does not experience fear or anxiety when going to the dentist it is an option depending on the procedure you are having done.
If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to our office and our friendly staff will help answer all your questions.
