If you’re anxious about dental appointments, experience dental sensitivity, or you’re in need of numerous or advanced dental treatments, the thought of undergoing procedures with only local anesthesia may be anxiety inducing. Take a deep breath and find a dentist who offers dental sedation. When most people think of sedation, what they imagine is general anesthesia, but for the most part, this level of sedation is not necessary to keep patients comfortable. Instead, many dentists are now offering advanced intravenous (IV) sedation. This advanced conscious sedative is safe and effective.
