Sedation Dentistry

Relaxation Dentistry

Conscious Sedation is defined as a minimally depressed level of consciousness that retains the patient's ability to independently and continuously maintain an airway and respond appropriately to physical stimulation and verbal command and that is produced by pharmacological or pharmacological method or combination thereof.

Sedation Dentistry, sometimes called Relaxation Dentistry, refers to the way dentists manage pain and anxiety during dental appointments. Unlike General Anesthesia where a patient is completely unconscious, asleep, and unable to respond, patients under Conscious Sedation are able to respond to commands and breathe on their own.
