Anxiolysis

Anxiolysis

Sedation dentistry offers individuals with general anxiety about going to the dentist, or fears about a specific dental procedure, the opportunity to have a stress free and more comfortable experience. Utilizing safe and controlled sedation techniques prior to the dental procedure the patient is eased into a state of complete relaxation.

Anxiolysis is considered the lightest level of sedation, reducing the stress and anxiety that may be associated with a dental visit, or a particular procedure, while an individual maintains their ability to respond appropriately to verbal commands. The usual anxiolysis protocol consists of an oral medication given pre-operatively.
