What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry can be a great option for patients who suffer from high levels anxiety and fear when it comes to dental procedures. Usually these people are unable or unwilling to tolerate pain, which makes this type of treatment perfect; however, even those with extremely sensitive mouths need not worry about sensitivity because gas anesthesia will numb their nerves during procedure time.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to provide sedative treatments, but it can be nerve-wracking for some patients. Dr. Malhi, specializes in this field as she has extensive training from anesthesiologists who are experts on how the medication should affect you during your treatment so that everything goes smoothly without any complications or side effects while also being closely monitored throughout all procedures done without compromising patient comfort levels.
How Long Do the Effects of Sedation Dentistry Last?
Nitrous oxide is a quick-acting gas that will have you feeling better in no time. The effects only last as long though, so it’s essential to take care of yourself after treatment. Sedation options like oral conscious sedation and IV doses require longer recovery periods because they involve heavier medications.
