Worry Free Dentistry With Sedation Dentistry
Are you avoiding visits to the dentist? Are you sensitive to pain, uncomfortable in the dentist chair, or anxious about dental visits? If so, your dentist has a solution that can help you feel comfortable throughout your visit so you can receive needed dental work. Because your cosmetic dentist understands how critical regular dental visits are for oral and general health, he is additionally trained and certified as a sedation dentist. Dental sedation most commonly comes in the form of pill that you take just prior to your visit. By the time you arrive at your appointment, you will feel groggy and completely relaxed, although you can still remain conscious throughout the procedure. Many patients leave with almost no memories of the visit!
Do you need to see a sedation dentist? Dental sedation can work on almost anyone for almost any procedure, although your dentist will want to review your health history and current medications to make sure you qualify. The most common reasons people visit a sedation dentist are as follows:
- Dental fear or anxiety
- Fear of needles
- Back or neck muscle tension
- Pain sensitivity
- Discomfort sitting for long periods of time
- Sensitive gag reflex
Putting off dental work can be extremely harmful to your oral health and general health. Neglected oral health often leads to such issues as tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth loss, among others. With dental sedation, you can feel calm and relaxed while getting the dental care you need to keep your teeth healthy and strong.
