Sedation dentistry is the use of any pharmaceutical drugs to help patients feel relaxed whenever they’re in the treatment chair. There are different types of sedation for patients who have varying severities of dental anxiety and phobia, making the process easy to customize to fit each unique need. Our team at Kansas Center for Sedation Dentistry also gets to know about our patients so we can better accommodate them and help them relax in different ways as well.
