Sedation or Sleep Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is sometimes incorrectly referred to as sleep dentistry. This term is misleading as the patients never actually ‘sleep’ during the procedure. The effects of the sedative cause the patients to feel the effects of sleep, but in fact they are awake the entire procedure. In sedation dentistry, the body is relaxed and patients are not likely to remember much from the treatment.
