Many adults equate dental care with pain, anxiety or discomfort. They may have had an unpleasant dental experience in the past. In other cases, a medical condition such as tremors, hyperactive gag-reflex or a heart condition may require that additional sedative techniques be used during dental procedures. These are great reasons to have your dentistry done under sedation or general anesthesia.
In children, oral sedation during dental procedures does not always work well because the child is still awake. Children can sometimes physically hurt themselves if they are not sedated completely, and qualitly dental care is harder to deliver when the patient cannot be still.
