Local anesthetic is used to numb certain areas of the mouth for simple procedures and for those with mild dental anxiety. It can also be used with other forms of sedation.
Oral sedation is taken in pill form one hour before the procedure, causing drowsiness and feelings of deep relaxation for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety.
IV conscious sedation induces a deep “sleep state” for patients with severe dental anxiety and/or for patients who need more lengthy and complex dental treatment.
