What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry, or sleep dentistry, is a form of dentistry where the patient is put under general anesthesia prior to dental work.

The patient is then “asleep” for the dental work so that no pain or anxiety is felt during their care. For many who suffer from anxiety or phobia of going to the dentist or those who have extreme sensitivity, sedation dentistry is an ideal solution for peace-of-mind and optimum dental care.

Will I feel pain during sedation dentistry?

No, you shouldn’t feel pain. A combination of sedation and anesthetic is typically used, which will numb the area in addition to allowing you to sleep through and in some cases the depending on the procedure the patient can be awake but relaxed and feeling no pain, facilitating the dental procedure.

How long does sedation dentistry last?

Sedation dentistry can last anywhere from 2-8 hours depending on the method used and the individual’s body. Some people recover from sedation faster than others. Your dentist can help give you an idea so you can plan accordingly. Please arrange transportation home after your visit as you may be groggy and unable to drive.
