What is Dental Sedation?
Sedation Dentistry is the use of medication to help fearful patients relax during dental procedures. It is also referred to as “sleep dentistry”, but that’s not entirely accurate because most patients are usually awake. Only the patients that are under general anesthesia are completely unconscious. Our Buford Dentist, like most general dentists, does not administer general anesthesia. Based on the severity of the patient’s fear, we provide minimal to moderate level of sedation at our Buford Dental Office where the patient is usually awake but relaxed.
