Dental sedation is a technique that can be used when a patient suffers from dental anxiety or dental phobia. Depending on the extent of the anxiety or phobia, varying degrees of dental sedation can be utilized.  Why should anyone be afraid of going to the dentist when they can relax and never remember having been to the dentist.  Todays medications are safe, effective and have little to no side effects as the older medications did.  Everyone can enjoy the benefits of sedation dentistry!
