Sedation Dentistry, sometimes called Relaxation Dentistry, refers to the way dentists manage pain and anxiety during dental appointments.
Sedation Dentistry, also referred to as Relaxation Dentistry, is a technique used by dentists to effectively manage pain and anxiety during dental appointments. Unlike General Anesthesia, which induces complete unconsciousness, patients undergoing Conscious Sedation remain responsive to commands and maintain their ability to breathe independently.
Conscious Sedation, alternatively known as Oral Sedation, involves taking a pill approximately an hour before your scheduled dental appointment. Throughout the procedure, the patient's bodily functions continue normally, and breathing remains unobstructed. This approach induces a profound state of relaxation, enabling patients to communicate and respond to requests while often drifting into sleep during the dental procedure.
Utilizing Conscious Sedation as an integral part of your dental treatment offers the advantage of completing a more extensive treatment plan in a single session. With the assistance of a chairside aide, the dentist can focus entirely on your care, minimizing interruptions. At Life Smile Dental Center, we've designated a private operatory exclusively for conscious sedation patients, ensuring your comfort and security throughout the appointment.
