For many of us going to the dentist is a seemingly unpleasant but necessary event. Not unlike filing our taxes or getting that long overdue physical checkup out of the way. But for others a trip to the dentist chair can be as frightening as storming the beaches of Normandy on “D” day.
We all know it’s necessary but how can we get past all of this fear and anxiety?
For many dental patients sedation dentistry is a clear and straightforward practice being employed by many of today’s more progressive dentists. Of course sedation dentistry isn’t a one size fits all procedure, there are many different levels of sedation and application, so speaking with your dentist about sedation options will help you find the best fit for your situation.
Sedation dentistry allows those patients with high levels of anxiety and fear to show up for their dental procedure, with their clammy hands, dilated pupils and elevated heart rates and get the dental procedures they require completed in relative comfort and ease.
Sedation dentistry is also a good option for patients who may have a low threshold for pain, have very sensitive teeth, a hyperactive gag reflex, or a substantial amount of dental work to be completed.
