Sedatives are used to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain people who receive dental treatments.
It helps those who are too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding dental phobia.
There are several different levels of sedation:
Minimal sedation – the patient is awake but calm.
Moderate sedation – the patient may slur their words when speaking and may not remember much of the procedure.
Deep sedation – the patient is on the edge of consciousness but can be awakened.
General anaesthesia – the patient is unconscious.
