When patients are administered anaesthesia during dental treatment to put them into relaxed state is known as sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is done during some procedures that need extensive time in treatment chair, and it is essential for patients who are unable to control their movements and pain and the term for this is dental phobia.
There are some forms of sedation dentistry where doctors allow patients to be sedated, so that they don’t feel the trauma and pain while undergoing a dental procedure. Sedation dentistry procedure is applicable for patients who have fear of dentists and dental procedure. Dentists also use nitrous oxide commonly known as laughing gas to relieve pain and it is called sleep dentistry or conscious sedation.
There are many kinds of dental sedation, and it depends on technique and type of treatment performed to ease patient’s anxiety. The doctor will suggest the best form of conscious sedation treatment for you, and it can be with deeper sedation with intravenous drugs, nitrous oxide or oral sedatives.
