More Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Depending on what work the dentist will be performing on your teeth, additional anesthetic or numbing medication will still need to be used at the sight. For example, most people who have had a tooth filling must first have part of the tooth drilled and cleaned in preparation. Due to the nerves that exist within each tooth, this can be a painful process and is not recommended without a numbing agent. Both numbing medications and sedation medications are used, both performing separate tasks. One makes operating a less painful process, the other allowing for a more pleasant experience for the patient.
