Sedation dentistry refers to any dental treatment or procedure that includes the use of sedative medications to help patients relax during their visit. From mild to deep sedation, there are many ways your dental team can help you experience less anxiety and feel more at ease during your appointments.
If you have anxiety about visiting the dentist or have put off important dental care due to fear, talk to your dentist about how sedation dentistry can help ease your nerves. It’s never too late to consider your oral health and the benefits that come with a beautiful, healthy smile.
There are many options for sedation dentistry available, such as:
Yes! Sedatives are widely recognized as safe and effective for most patients. This is partly due to the fact that dentists monitor you throughout your procedure and can adjust your sedative levels accordingly. Also, it takes little time for the medication to take effect, so you will be awake enough to communicate with your dentist, and sensations should be minimal. Finally, the benefits of comfortable dental procedures far outweigh the risks of the medications. For example, the fear of going to the dentist is a fear that can keep you from seeking important dental care for years. When patients avoid seeing their dentist regularly, they run the risk of serious oral health issues, which can be expensive to treat. A comfortable experience during dental treatment can help to ease your mind and make it easier for you to keep up with regular visits.
