Would Sedation Dentistry Help You See the Dentist More Often?

Posted on 1/30/2018 by OPDSF Office

It allows you to be calm and relaxed during the procedures, and you can pick how sedated you become.

There are levels that simply take the edge off your anxiety, all the way through being basically asleep while the work is done. If you got to sleep through what they were doing, would your mouth be healthier?

Getting Your Oral Health Back through Sedation Dentistry

When you have gone a long time between dental visits, then you are likely going to need some work done when you finally go back.

You may have issues with the health of your gums, and you more than likely have some cavities that need to be filled. You may even need more work done than that. Getting a sedative can help make the worry and anxiety about that work a thing of the past.

You can have a little laughing gas to help lower your anxiety. You can take a pill that helps you calm down. There are IV sedation options that keep you conscious, but unaware of what is going on, and leave you with very little memory of the entire procedure. Plus, you can also have a full sedation, which allows you to be asleep while the dentist gets the work done.

When you are not anxious, then your dentist can work more smoothly and quickly than if you were nervously fidgeting around in their chair.

Consider the benefits of getting your mouth as healthy as possible, and doing it in a way that allows you to feel comfortable. Contact our office and see if they offer sedation dentistry as one of your options.
