Conscious sedation is the administration of a medicine to help you relax (a sedative) and to block pain (an anaesthetic) during a medical or dental procedure.
Conscious sedation is a great ally for procedures in patients with certain degree of anxiety and highly recommended for procedures of long duration specially in placement of dental implants or complex dental extractions, but it can be applied to any dental treatment.
