Sedation Dentistry and How It Can Take the Fear Out of Your Visits

“Now, don’t judge – but I’m scared to death of the dentist. What if I need extensive work or implants? What are my options?” says many people everywhere…

And there is a way you can finally reclaim your health and your good looks with the miracle of sedation for dentistry.

Here’s some helpful info to ease those fears…

What Is Sedation For Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a safe, comfortable way to completely relax during your dental appointments. It sounds impossible to believe, but with this technique, you really can “sleep” right through a dental visit.

Depending on the level of sedation chosen, you may or may not actually fall asleep, but you will experience a deep feeling of calm and peace. Combined with the careful application of a numbing agent to any sensitive areas, you’ll experience a comfortable relaxing session.

What Does Sedation Feel Like?
Simply put…if feels like a catnap. You’re not unconscious, but you’re pleasantly “dozing” as though in a half awake, half dream state.

Most patients report feeling just unaware enough to be calm and relaxed. And when it’s over you’ll feel refreshed, with little or no memory of the treatment performed.

Deeper levels of sedation are also available, where you are completely unconscious. This type of sedation is useful for more complex procedures or for children who need a lot of dentistry done in one visit.

Whatever is best for you to have a good appointment is what you dentist should do. With all of the new techniques and methods available today, there’s no reason for you to fear going to the dentist any longer.
