We have talked about how dental sedation works and why we do it, but we haven’t talked about the specific benefits of sedation dentistry. The obvious benefit is that you normally won’t feel any pain during a procedure. However, you also get a lot of other benefits from choosing dental sedation during your next visit. Let’s look at what to expect when oral conscious sedation is administered during a dental treatment.
Painless Dental Numbing
Sedation dentistry doesn’t work on the surface level (think Novocain) and it isn’t injected into your gums with a syringe. It numbs the pain receptors in your entire body and is administered most often as a gas. You might feel a light pressure during the procedure, but you won’t feel any sharp pain in your mouth. It is possible to minimize unpleasant visits to the dentist with professional sedation techniques.
Conscious, Responsive, And Completely Relaxed
You are fully awake and responsive while you’re sedated during the dental procedure. You have full control over your body and your mind, but it is much easier to sit back and relax. This is good for both you and your dentist. If your dentist needs to get at a better angle on a tooth, they can simply ask you to move your head or adjust your position on your own. Some dental sedation patients even fall asleep during their treatment which helps ease dental anxiety.
Sedation can make you a bit loopy and lower your speech inhibitions. Don’t worry, you won’t start spilling any of your personal or state secrets! You will feel very relaxed and probably won’t experience as much anxiety when talking with the face behind the mask.

Dental Sedation Eliminates General Dental Anxiety
We have found that sedation helps reduce or completely eliminate dental anxiety, both before and after the procedure. Dental anxiety can be devastating to your teeth because problems put off due to anxiety often only worsen. Dental sedation doesn’t involve any sharp pain and you don’t lose consciousness, which can help reduce apprehension of pain. Professional sedation dental experts relieve and reduce anxiety by providing high-quality care to each patient. By providing comprehensive pain control in patients undergoing dental procedures, sedation promotes long-term dental health.
There is no injection to stress, and you also don’t have to worry about being unconscious. We have found that the ability for a patient to go through a procedure this relaxed has helped them cope with dental anxiety. This has greatly helped our patients regain control over their health and attend to long-neglected dental problems.
