Millions of people around the world experience anxiety when it comes to dental procedures. Going to the dentist alone is enough to make some people uneasy or anxious, whether they’re anticipating pain, vulnerability, or simply the all-too-familiar discomfort it might entail.
For anyone who experiences dental anxiety, there are alternative options to bypass your worries. Sedation dentistry offers an entirely pain-free experience that eliminates whatever discomfort you may have. We provide Sedation to our patients to ensure maximum comfort during treatments.
What Is Sedation Dentistry, or What Is Sleep Dentistry?
Generally speaking, sedation dentistry aims to help the patient feel relaxed while undergoing treatment. This can be done in several ways to produce varying levels of sedation.
Sometimes moderate sedation is all that’s needed for a patient to feel relaxed enough while remaining fully conscious and aware of what’s going on. Other times a patient might be sedated into a gentle sleep that’s easy to wake from, and in some cases, they may be unconscious while their treatment lasts.
Common forms of sedation dentistry may include:
- Oral Sedation
- IV Sedation
- Nitrous Oxide
Is Sedation Dentistry Right For Me?
Removing fear and anxiety is one of the many benefits of sleep dentistry. Sedation also enables our dentists to work without worrying about a nervous patient. Procedures that might otherwise have to be broken down into smaller, more manageable sessions can be done in a single appointment without causing patients any undue stress or discomfort, which also benefits them in terms of cost and the results they can enjoy.
Whatever the case, sedation dentistry offers an opportunity to care for your oral health while putting your mind at ease. Multiple procedures can be taken care of with one visit, and you may leave remembering little of the experience.
