Visiting to the dentist can cause anxiety. If you have dental anxiety that prevents you from seeing the dentist regularly or if you're nervous about a procedure such as a tooth extraction, Sedation Dentistry can help you feel comfortable throughout your treatment. It can even help suppress your gag reflex or assuage a fear of needles, allowing you to feel calm and comfortable while we work on your smile!
Who Needs Sedation Dentistry?
Patients who consider sedation dentistry often have different reasons for their interest, such as the following:
- Phobia related to dental procedures
- Bad experience with dental work in the past
- Particularly sensitive oral nerves
- Small mouth that becomes sore during dental work
- Resistance to local anesthetic
- General anxiety disorder
If you recognize yourself in any of those problem areas, consider asking our dentist about sedation dentistry. Dental sedation can help patients get through many types of dental work, such as root canals, tooth extractions, dental implantation, and more. However, it’s typically not offered for regular dental cleanings, X-rays, and other routine care. Cases of extreme anxiety may be a viable reason for sedation during those procedures, though.
The benefits of Sedation Dentistry include:
Eliminate pain and discomfort
Sedation eliminates any risk of pain or discomfort during your appointment, so it's a perfect choice if you have dental anxiety or are worried about an upcoming surgery or procedure.
Stay comfortable for long procedures
If you have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time, Sedation Dentistry can help you stay comfortable. This can be especially helpful for you if you are having multiple or complex oral surgeries.
Sleep through your appointment
IV sedation is a deep sedative treatment. You are asleep and can't remember anything about the procedure afterwards. Even with deep sedation, local anesthetic needs to be administered because your pain reflexes, though significantly dulled, are still intact.
Will You Benefit From Sedation Dentistry?
Before you decide on dental sedation, consider the procedure you face and your general response to dental care. For instance, do you fear needles? If so, IV sedation might cause more anxiety than the dental work itself. Similarly, if you’re worried about becoming vulnerable in the dental chair, you might want to stay alert and stick with a local anesthetic.
However, if you’re putting off dental work because you fear the pain or any other part of the work, sleep dentistry might offer the best solution. When you ignore issues such as dental caries, loose or broken teeth, and other problems, you put your oral health at risk. Furthermore, the problem might become more complicated as time passes, which could mean that you’ll need more extensive dental work in the future.
