CAN YOU REALLY RELAX IN THE DENTIST’S CHAIR?
Sedation Dentistry Warrnambool
Sedation is used to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain people who receive dental treatments. It enables those who are too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding dental phobia.
Minimal sedation – patient is awake but calm.
Moderate sedation (formerly called “conscious sedation”) – patient may slur their words when speaking and not remember much of the procedure.
Deep sedation – patient is on the edge of consciousness but can still be awakened.
General anaesthesia – patient is completely unconscious.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
There are four benefits of sedation. It includes:
#1. Overcome fear and anxiety
