Oral Sedation Dentistry

Reserved for patients whom suffer from anxiety, sedation dentistry is the best way to complete all of your dental treatments with minimal discomfort. It is an efficient and safe way of completely removing the anxiousness and dread connected with any part of dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It is frequently referred to as “sleep dentistry,” although that’s not wholly correct. Patients usually remain awake, with the sole exception of those that are under general anesthesia.

At Airport Square Dental Dr. Wojda uses oral conscious sedation. The oral medication is provided prior to treatment in order to induce a moderate state of sedation. Though oral sedatives do not cause sleep, they usually dull the senses. Most patients cannot remember the pain, smells or sounds associated with the procedure. Usually, a dose of medication is taken before the appointment, and then topped up during the procedure as required.
