Sedation dentistry can be a combination of several anxiety-reducing factors. Different methods of conscious sedation are available to all of patients. Oral medications such as Valium can be used to help a guest relax and feel more comfortable, especially during long procedures. Sedation dentistry may also involve intravenous sedation for guests who can’t or won’t have dental procedures any other way. Guests that have a very sensitive gag reflex or have difficulty getting numb with dental injections can also benefit from intravenous sedation dentistry.
