When you think of going to the dentist, what do you think of? While most people consider dentist appointments to be in regards to cleanings, fillings, or routine checkups, sometimes more extensive procedures are necessary.
From root canals to dental implants, these types of procedures may require some type of sedation. If the patient isn’t sedated for these appointments, these procedures may cause a great deal of anxiety and stress. However, it’s important to note that sedation dentistry poses some risks, and you also must prepare for these appointments differently compared to your regular dental visits.
