The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Do you dread going to the dentist? Whether you are nervous or fearful of dental treatment, you should know a solution has arrived in the form of sedation dentistry. Meet with our sedation dentist and you will find there is no reason to fear dental treatments and procedures. We will keep you comfortable from the moment you sit down in the dentist chair to the moment you leave the office. Aside from the perfect level of comfort, you will also benefit in that you will no longer feel stressed out in the days, hours and minutes leading up to your dental appointment.
Sedation Dentistry Allows You to Remain Conscious
Opt for sedation dentistry1 and you will feel extremely relaxed throughout the duration of the treatment or procedure. You might feel like you are sleeping but you will be conscious to the point that you can provide the dentist with physical or verbal responses. This is important as you will remain in complete control over yourself as well as the situation.
Above all, the top benefit of sedation dentistry is enhanced comfort. Everyone who has undergone a major dental procedure will testify there was some discomfort. However, those who take the sedation dentistry route feel perfectly comfortable throughout the entirety of the procedure. If you are even slightly anxious or fearful of dental treatments or procedures, give sedation dentistry a chance and you will no longer hate the idea of meeting with the dentist.
Take a moment to think about how nice it will be to feel relaxed in the dentist's chair during your treatment. There won't be any discomfort at any point throughout the entirety of the procedure as you will be sedated. This is the pain-free dental experience you have long-hoped for.
More can be Done in a Single Session
With sedation dentistry you will be able to have more work completed than if you didn’t use sedation. If you are like most people, you are fiercely protective of your free time as you likely work for a living. Opt for sedation dentistry and the dentist will be able to do that much more work on your mouth as the teeth, gums, tongue and other areas can be manipulated as required for the utmost efficiency.
There is no Memory of the Treatment
Sedation dentistry patients typically have amnesia following their procedure or treatment. There is no memory of the treatment or procedure. Nor will you have any flashbacks to pain that occurred during the treatment. The entire experience will be left in the past. You really will look back on your sedation dentistry treatment and think of it as a positive experience.
Sedation Dentistry Reduces the Odds of a gag Reflex
Gag reflexes are important for protecting against the inhalation of all substances aside from air. Highly sensitive gag reflexes will create problems when dental work is performed. If the gag reflex keeps occurring, it makes it that much more difficult for the dentist to complete the procedure. Sedation dentistry is the solution. This approach dramatically reduces the gag reflex, making it that much easier for our sedation dentist to get the work done in as little time as possible.
Dental Sedation Makes It Easier to Sit Still for Lengthy Procedures
The addition of several crowns, the placement of a filling or even having a filling redone requires upwards of half an hour to 45 minutes in the dental chair. If you need a root canal, you will likely be in the dental chair for upwards of an hour and a half. Sedation dentistry is the best approach if a considerable amount of cosmetic work is necessary at the same time, be it whitening, bonding or another procedure. Even those who are fairly calm will likely become restless after being in the dental chair for several hours, staring at the ceiling and keeping their mouth agape. Sedation dentistry reduces the level of consciousness to make those lengthy treatments and procedures that much more tolerable.
Needles Won't Send Shivers Down Your Spine
Dentists rely on numbing agents to minimize patient pain. However, most patients dread the idea of a large needle being inserted in their mouth. Some people are just as afraid of needles as they are of the dentist. Sedation dentistry does not elicit any fear of needles or anything else as the patient is sedated to the point that sensations are not felt. There is no reason to fear needle injections when there is no prospect of pain.
