Does the thought of visiting the dentist paralyse you with fear? Are you struggling to find help with your phobia? Sedation dentistry could be what you’ve been looking for. With many people who have not visited the dentist in years and some since childhood, many of us are unaware that modern dentistry has welcomed many new revolutionary procedures as well as a change in dental health care. These include awareness and management of patient’s fears, pain-free procedures, and sedation dentistry. Here we explore what sedative dentistry is, and the most frequently asked questions about this procedure.

You will not be able to perform any strenuous exercise or hazardous activities and it is best that you rest the remainder of the day.
It is advisable to not drink alcohol for at least 24 hours after treatment.
Do not eat a heavy meal immediately after sedation, however, you should drink fluids.
