Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?

Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?

Despite dramatic advancements in dental practice and technology, millions of people today still suffer from severe dental anxiety and would rather suffer endless pain because of a toothache rather than get it checked out by a dentist. If you have a fear or anxiety about going to the dentist, then you might benefit from sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry makes it possible for people with even severe Dental anxiety to enjoy a fast and easy operation that can even save their teeth.

There are many different avenues of sedation dentistry, and each one can be right for you depending on your preferences. Which sedation method you desire will likely depend on the level of consciousness that you wish to be at. Some patients don't want to be conscious whatsoever during their appointment due to the fact that they are suffering from severe anxiety. On the other hand, many patients have a fear of being completely sedated and would rather opt for a mild sedative to curb their dental anxiety. No matter the case, we can find a level of sedation and type of sedation that is perfect for you.

The type of people who may desire sedation dentistry vary:

  • People who need a major or a large number of dental procedures
  • Those who have delicate or sensitive teeth
  • Anybody with anxiety or a hard time sitting in a dentist's chair
  • A person with a very low tolerance for pain
  • Someone with a severe gag reflex

Sedation dentistry is also safe and effective for children. Many children benefit from sedation dentistry due to the fact that they find it difficult to sit still or have a fear of dentists.
