At Welcome Smile Dental, we understand that going to the dentist can incite fear or worry for some people. Even the thought of going to the dentist may be enough to cause anxiety, thus preventing you from even making an appointment. If this scenario sounds familiar, then sedation (sleep) dentistry may be the right option for you.

About Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry is a way of keeping you calm and relaxed through the use of sedatives during dental procedures. These sedatives may include tranquilizers and anti-anxiety medications. In some clinics, it is common to administer sedatives via the intravenous or IV method. Medical advancements have helped create alternatives for administering sedatives without using injections. Today, patients can choose oral administration for sedation – gone are the needles! Indeed, oral sedation paves the way for a painless, relaxing dental visit.
