Sleep dentistry allows those who are afraid of or anxious at the thought of being at the dentist to become much more relaxed before and during dental treatment.
Sleep dentistry is available for every kind of dental treatment, from a minimal teeth cleaning session to a more invasive procedure. Depending on the severity of your anxiety, there are different levels of sleep dentistry. This ranges from:
- Minimal sedation that allows you to be awake but relaxed.
- Moderate sedation that allows you to not remember much of the treatment.
- Deep sedation that puts you on the edge of consciousness, but allows you to still be awakened.
- General anesthesia that puts you under, allowing complete unconsciousness.
Coupled with sleep dentistry, you may also receive a numbing medication to relieve discomfort or pain when undergoing a more invasive procedure.
