For some patients, even the thought of visiting a Tulsa cosmetic dentist for a simple tooth whitening strikes a nerve. If you fall within this category, sedation dentistry may help you overcome your fears and anxiety. Sedation can be used in a wide range of dental procedures, including everything from simple cleanings to the insertion of dental implants.
Different Levels of Sedation
While sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry,” sedation dentistry rarely involves complete unconsciousness, except for more complex procedures. In many cases, you’ll remain awake or aware throughout your procedure.
