Dental sedation offers patients options for helping them feel more relaxed during treatment procedures so they can get the dentistry they need in a timely and comfortable manner. Here are three reasons patients might choose sedation dentistry.
Fear or Anxiety
Dental fear or anxiety keeps many patients from visiting the dentist on a regular basis. The good news is that options such as nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, can help patients feel more at ease during most types of procedures. Better yet, it doesn’t interfere with your normal activities when you return home after your appointment.
Multiple Complex Procedures
Has your hectic schedule kept you from completing the dental treatment you need? Now you might be looking at multiple complex procedures to restore your oral health?
Many patients choose sedation dentistry to help them feel calm and relaxed, even as if they were sleeping so they can complete multiple treatment procedures during one appointment.
Do you or a loved one suffer from a bad gag reflex, low pain threshold, or have difficulty sitting in the dental chair for long periods of time? Sedation dentistry can help patients with these or other special needs comfortably get the treatment need without having to manage the discomforts caused by these conditions.
Oral sedation is administered through a pill taken 1 hour before treatment, while IV sedation is delivered intravenously so it can be adjusted throughout your procedure according to your unique needs.
