For those who fear the thought of being at the dentist, sleep dentistry will allow you to become more relaxed before dental treatment begins, and relieves a large amount of anxiety that you could've had during the treatment.
Sleep dentistry can be used for any dental treatment, both minimal and invasive. How sleep dentistry is used depends on the severity of ones fear. There is minimal sedation in which you are awake but relaxed, moderate sedation in which you may not remember much of the treatment, deep sedation in which you are on the edge of consciousness but can still be awakened, or general anesthesia in which you are completely unconscious.
With sleep dentistry, you will also receive numbing medication to relieve any pain or discomfort during a more invasive treatment.
