Because of past experiences, some people will not go to a dentist and are unable to benefit from property dentistry because they are afraid. Sedation dentistry enables patients who have fear or anxiety of dental work to be able to take advantage of modern dentistry procedures. Sedation dentistry does not render you completely unconscious. You are simply relaxed to the point that you will not feel anything throughout your procedure. This can be done with a pill (oral sedation) or IV sedation.
