What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves using medication before your appointment to let you relax during your dental procedure. While you are sedated, you’ll still be conscious unless you are under general anesthesia. Depending on your situation, you can achieve different levels of sedation. The sedation levels are as follows:


  • Conscious and relaxed


  • Conscious but may have slurred speech or fuzzy memory of the procedure


  • Close to unconscious but can still be awakened


  • Unconscious
  • VA Dental Center is by far the best experience I have ever had at a dentist. The staff was extremely professional and kind from the front desk to the hygienist. I would highly recommend them.
