When it comes to receiving dental work, some of us have been fearful for most of our lives. A bad experience as a child, a procedure gone wrong as an adult or suffering a severe mouth injury can make anyone anxious at the dentist’s office. If you are fearful of the dentist, sedation dentistry may be the answer. By being made comfortable throughout the procedure, you can get the care you need without anxiety, fear or psychological setbacks.
How Sedation Dentistry Works
Sedation dentistry can be done via IV sedation, oral sedatives, nitrous oxide or a combination of both oral sedation and nitrous oxide. As you can see, you have options. There are many advantages to sedation dentistry that you may not have previously considered.
No Anxiety or Fear
We are quite aware of how anxious and fearful some of our clients can feel, especially with common triggers such as the sound of certain dental equipment. Some people may feel nauseous or panicky just allowing the dentist to look in their mouth with a mirror. For this reason, our dentist will do everything possible to make you comfortable and at ease before you are sedated. The consultation beforehand will be conducted in the comfort of our office. Once the treatment plan is agreed upon, you can choose a method of sedation dentistry. There should be no anxiety or fear throughout this process.
No Psychological Setbacks
If you have had a bad dental experience in the past, you may experience certain psychological setbacks during your dental work. Sedation dentistry helps to ensure that you will not feel discomfort during your procedure at all.
