Sedation dentistry will allow you to overcome the fear, anxiety, or nervousness that you associate with the dentist.
If you have been avoiding the dentist’s office, you have been missing out on the short-term and long-term benefits of having clean and healthy teeth. Good oral hygiene is linked to a lifetime of good whole body health, so it is important to make regular visits a priority.
Sedation dentistry makes visiting the dentist completely stress-free. Some of the advantages of sedation dentistry include:
Feel Fearless | If you tend to feel anxious about visiting the dentist, sedation dentistry will give you the chance to relax completely before and during your appointment. You will not have to remember the details of the procedure–you can just enjoy your improved health afterwards.
Sensitivity Free | Sedation dentistry actually increases your sensitivity threshold. With sedation dentistry along with a local anesthetic, you will feel nothing but complete comfort during your procedure.
Fewer Appointments | If you have several things you would like to achieve at the dentist’s office, but don’t want to visit time and time again, sedation dentistry could be the answer for you. Sedation dentistry may allow you to undergo a longer appointment in order to reach all of your smile goals in one sitting.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is breathed in through a mask that fits over the nose. While your dentist improves your health, the nitrous oxide will allow your mind and body to rest. With nitrous oxide, you will remain conscious, but you will not feel any worry or anxiety.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation consists of taking a pill before your appointment. Oral conscious sedation also provides you with a worry-free mind throughout your visit. Oral conscious sedation is an easy and familiar way to find guaranteed comfort.
Some patients would prefer IV sedation because it allows them to nap through the appointment. IV sedation will quickly put you to sleep. When you wake up at the end of the procedure, you will feel like only a few moments have passed.
