These applications, which have been used in the medical field for many years, are preferred for the treatment processes to be much more comfortable and better. In the very old years, that is, in the periods when such applications were not available, many people experienced great difficulties in many surgical procedures, especially in dentistry applications. Thanks to the anesthesia and sedation applications applied today, the treatment processes are extremely comfortable for the patients.
