Sedation dentistry is sometimes called “sleep dentistry”. At Queensbury dental centre, our dental surgeons are trained to administer sedation during dental procedures. The main goal of sedation is to make the patient feel more confortable and less anxious about the treatments.
Although there are a variety of ways to give sedation, the depth of sedation (sleepiness) is not necessarily dependent what form of sedation is given.
The main ways to administer sedation are to use nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation (pills) or I.V. sedation (via a vein).
