Sedation dentistry eases anxieties and phobias, helping you remain calm and comfortable during dental procedures. It’s beneficial for people with dental anxiety or for those who are undergoing lengthy treatment. It’s sometimes called conscious sedation or “twilight sleep” because it creates a state of short-term amnesia (forgetfulness) where you experience insensitivity to pain without the loss of consciousness. Options include nitrous oxide, oral sedation and intravenous (IV) moderate sedation.
While all dentists are trained in minimal sedation, only those with the appropriate qualifications can offer moderate sedation. At River Towne Dental, both Dr. Sinasac and the facility have met strict requirements to offer this service for our patients.
