Why Should You Consider Sedation Dentistry


Posted on 4/26/2021 by Ashley Miller
Why Should You Consider Sedation DentistryAre your fears preventing you from going to the dentist even though it's high time? You are not alone. There are plenty of people who would bear the agony of a toothache than go to the dentist. This is where sedation dentistry comes in to save the day.

What is Sedation Dentistry?


In sedation dentistry, the patient is given medication to relax them. Sedation is used in various procedures, from root canal to plaque cleaning. The way sedation dentistry is used can make a lot of difference. Many patients prefer sedation dentistry to calm their anxieties. That is why we are going to explain why you should consider it over conventional methods.

Why You Will Love Sedation Dentistry


Sedation dentistry is an excellent choice for patients with Odontophobia or Trypanophobia, a rare condition where the patient fears going to the dentist and needles.

It Goes By Faster


Instead of lying on a mechanic chair scared to death, sedation dentistry can help you relax. And when you are numb the entire time, all dental procedures feel like a breeze.

You Won't Mind As Much


Sedatives can calm your anxieties and relax your muscles. Therefore, you won't feel a thing, and your oral muscles won't contract during any procedure. That is why sedation dentistry is also known as sleep dentistry.

A Complete Package


Sedation dentistry can take care of all major and minor dental procedures in a day. Since your body is asleep, you won't know when the procedures began and when they ended, wrapping up most of the work in one appointment.

Choosing sedation dentistry over conventional methods is a good idea if you have multiple phobias. Instead of complicating a simple procedure through your anxieties, you should visit Dr. Melanie Fulton. To schedule an appointment, you can call (402) 858-0525.
