Remember, sedation does not block pain, it only relaxes you.  You will be given a local anesthetic in addition to sedation medication to block any pain. You should plan to have a friend or family member drive you home after your treatment as you may remain drowsy after the procedure is completed. With modern sedation dentistry techniques, you can finally get the dental care you need. Make an appointment with the gentle and compassionate family dentists of South Shore Dental Care today.
