Many people postpone going to the dentist because of fear of dental procedures. Conscious oral sedation can provide anxiety relief and often overcome the fear. Oral Sedation is the use of a drug which relaxes the central nervous system enabling treatment to be carried out by the dentist while still allowing the patient to communicate. You normally remember very little but still co-operate with your dentist and wake up relaxed and calm. Sedation is typically used in minor surgical procedures such as wisdom teeth removal, root canal treatment, multiple teeth extraction, surgical extraction or multiple fillings procedures.
