Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It's sometimes called as "sleep dentistry," although it is not entirely accurate. The patients with fear of visiting a dentist are always preferred to undergo various types of this sedation dentistry as conscious and unconscious sedation dentistry.
