Many people feel anxious before and during dental procedures. It's okay to feel nervous or even fearful when anticipating an appointment. We understand that our patients aren't all the same, and we have great news: you have options! You can experience dental treatment in a comfortable, customized approach with several different methods of sedation dentistry. The most common forms of sedation used in dentistry are inhalation, oral, and intravenous sedation. While making dentistry much easier for you, it is important to understand that they are not pain-killers, and regular numbing medications still prove essential. But sedation will make every part of your treatment more enjoyable if you're anxious.
Reasons To Choose Sedation Dentistry
Millions of people are avoiding to visit their dentist and have a number of important procedures that are performed. Cavities go unchecked, tooth erosion is neglected, and gum disease is ignored by the sufferer. Sadly, the reason why these dental problems are allowed to persist (often, painfully) is because many people fear to have dental work done. Intravenous sedation eliminates this fear. Patients can visit a professional dentist and have most types of procedures completed without enduring any discomfort or pain.
Other people have a gag reflex when dentists perform work in their mouths. Sedation helps these patients to completely relax, allowing their dentists to perform work that is essential for good oral health. Still, others want to have cosmetic dental work done, but they fear the pain involved. They, too, can benefit from being sedated intravenously.
