What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is the processes of using medication that help patients relax during the procedure. There are variety of medications that we use during the procedure to calm down your nerves and reduce the feeling of pain and sensation. Patients relax thanks to the use of medication and this is why it is often termed as ‘sleep dentistry’ though you don’t really sleep during the procedure.

What are The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

What Does The Procedure Involve?

There are several sedation medications that are applied during the procedure and in most cases Dr. Kaur uses nitrous oxide popularly called as ‘laughing gas’ which makes you feel comfortable during the procedures. Sense of feeling light-headed or tingling feeling in your arms and legs is common when this medication is used. This gas is applied using a mask and the effects of the medication wears off once the mask is removed with no side-effects.

Dr. Kaur would weigh in the need for sedation dentistry based on the procedure to be performed and the level of sedation to be used during the procedure.
