We asked dentists whether they offer oral conscious sedation dentistry as part of their practice.
Most dentists were enthusiastic, but results varied depending on whether the dentist responding was a man or a woman, on their geographic location, and between general dentists and specialists.

Sedation dentistry allows you to be sedated just enough to be pain free and unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing.
That is why it is normally referred to as conscious sedation dentistry.
So if you have sensitive teeth, a fear of dentists, have a bad gag reflex, hate needles, or have limited time to spend on dental care at the dentist, Sedation during dentistry procedures can help you.
Conscious sedation or sleep dentistry allows dentists to use nitrous oxide or "laughing gas" to help the apprehensive patient.
If you have had painful dental care in the past or a traumatic experience in the dental chair, get the anxiety free dentistry care you need - pain free.
If you suffer from dental phobia or excessive fear, conscious sedation by your dentist can give you anxiety-free dentistry.
Your dentist's ultimate goal is to make your visit to the dentist a relaxing and enjoyable one.
Since you are completely comfortable, relaxed and pain free, your sedation dentist can do years of dental treatments in one or two dental visits.
