Everyone knows that oral health is vitally important to the overall health of your body, but it can be very hard to maintain a perfect smile if you do not make regular trips to the dentist. While scheduling an appointment at a dentist’s office may seem like a completely normal activity, it is nearly impossible for the large group of people that are deathly afraid of the dentist. Since you do not want to let this fear destroy your oral health, you may be able to benefit from IV sedation.
Reduce Your Anxiety
There is no reason to put yourself through a lot of stress and anxiety when it can be drastically reduced with sedation dentistry. While nothing will be able to reduce your anxiety leading up to the appointment, it is easy to eliminate your fear once you sit down in the chair. The IV sedative will instantly calm your nerves, so you will be able to experience a smooth appointment every time you visit our office.
Experience No Major Discomfort
The biggest problem with the dentist is that nearly every procedure involves some type of discomfort. The best way to completely eliminate your discomfort at our office is by using IV sedation. Since you will be sedated during the entire procedure, your body will be incapable of feeling discomfort. This is nearly identical to what you would experience during a surgical procedure.
Faster Treatment Times
IV sedation in dentistry will reduce the treatment time for everyone, but it will create far shorter appointments for anxious and scared patients. It is impossible to sit still throughout an entire dental procedure when you are fully awake. These movements make it harder for the dentist to do their job, which leads to longer appointments. The procedure becomes even longer if you are complaining or dealing with a severe fear of the dental equipment. Sedation allows our dentist to focus on the work at hand without dealing with the distractions of an awake patient, so you can expect much faster treatment times when using IV sedation in dentistry.
There is simply no reason to avoid visiting the dentist’s office thanks to IV sedation. The office of Dr. Michael Sohl in Stuart is proud to offer sedation dentistry for nervous or uneasy patients. Contact us today to schedule a dental appointment and get started!
