Here’s something you may not know…
There are four methods for sedating a patient during an in-office dental procedure. They are:
- Anxiolytic or minimal sedation
- Conscious/moderate sedation
- Deep sedation
- General anesthesia.
Each one is tailored to the amount of dental work that needs to be done. Your dentist will determine which method is best for you and your health while still being able to alleviate some of the pain you might feel.

Patients often have little or no memory of their treatment experience. In fact, many patients are amazed they don’t remember anything about their dental care. And the fact that they don’t even remember it happening is one of their FAVORITE side effects.
