What is Sleep Dentistry




Sedation dentistry is a broad and often confusing term that includes any type of sedation used in dentistry. The two types of sedation available are conscious sedation (awake) and unconscious sedation (asleep). 

Conscious sedation dentistry involves using oral pills or nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which will make you feel drowsy but should not put you to sleep.There are many difficulties with this method. 

Unconscious sedation dentistry involves the use of I.V. sedation or general anesthesia which produces RESTFUL sleep during which you will be free of pain and fear. You will have the "best sleep" ever and have no memory of the procedure.


Time, energy and money may be reduced by this method of treatment versus putting it off and possibly incurring future emergency care. Avoiding pain and suffering as well as a compromised quality of life is attainable with anesthesia.  Anesthesia care during dentistry in an outpatient setting provides for a quick recovery with a minimum of inconvenience!
