We recently discussed anxiety in dentistry and the options to provide anxiety relief in the dental clinic. In this article, we’ll describe the methods in greater detail and discuss which types of procedures would be suitable for the form of sedation available.
The most common medications we use for light sedation are Diazepam (Valium) and Penthrox (Methoxyflurane). Valium falls under the medication class of “benzodiazepines” and has been used safely for over 50 years.
