Smiling dental patient being treated without sedation

 

As dental procedures have become less invasive over the past few decades, it’s no longer necessary to be put to “sleep” for a procedure that might have meant a noon-day nap not so long ago. What should you know about sedation dentistry? What are the benefits, and why is it used?

 

So if the dentist gives you the chills, be sure to ask them about oral sedation during your next appointment.
