With a sedation, the patient is given a sedative prior to the dental treatment, which keeps him in a twilight sleep (sedation) in which he has reduced sensory perception and little or no memory of the treatment afterwards. Unlike with a general anesthesia (narcosis), there is no breathing tube inserted.

This method is well suited for fearful patients as sensation of pain is significantly reduced by the sedation as well. However, sedation is generally only suitable for short interventions.
