WHAT IS SEDATION DENTISTRY
Sedation dentistry is an effective way to cure your fear of the dentist. Millions of Americans have some level of anxiety about seeing the dentist, even though they know how important it is. Visiting your dentist on a regular basis has a lasting impact on your overall health, so dreading the dentist can negatively affect your life. We want to help you make your health a priority by calming your nerves about the dentist’s office. Sedation dentistry can safely put you perfectly at ease every time you visit us.
Not nervous about visiting your dentist? You can still benefit from sedation dentistry. If you have several procedures that you would like to get done in the office, sedation dentistry makes it possible to get them all done in a single appointment. Normally, you would need to spread the procedures across several weeks, months, or even years. Sedation dentistry can heighten your tolerance levels and make it possible for you to see the beautiful and healthy smile of your dreams in just one day.
ADVANTAGES OF SEDATION DENTISTRY
A Lifetime of Health | The calming effects of sedation dentistry will allow you to feel relaxed before and during every single dental procedure.
More Comfort | With sedation dentistry, your pain threshold will be raised and your body will be at ease. In many cases, anesthesia is not even necessary, although your dentist may choose to use it if it makes you more comfortable.
Fewer Appointments | Sedation makes it possible to get several procedures done in one sitting. If you need to visit the dentist several times for multiple procedures, ask to see if sedation dentistry could help you complete your tasks in a single visit.
Save Money | While sedation dentistry costs a little bit extra, you may end up saving money in the long run. If you are treated for several things in a single visit, you may be charged less than if you had chosen to visit many times.
Easier Cooperation | Patients who are sedated tend to be perfectly accommodating. You will be able to easily and calmly respond to your dentist’s questions.
Lessened Gag Reflex | If you have a problem with a sensitive gag reflex, sedation dentistry can make each procedure easier for you and your dentist. Your gag reflex will be reduced when you are sedated.
