Before undergoing any dental treatment, patients commonly worry about pain or discomfort. If the thought of lengthy or uncomfortable treatment makes you anxious, then sedation dentistry can help you relax during your procedure.
Sedation dentistry involves medication to help patients feel anxiety-free and comfortable during their dental care. Furthermore, these sedatives can be administered before patients receive their dental care to ease their nerves and make them feel more at ease before getting treatment. At Restoration Smiles: Adult & Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that many patients experience anxiety and stress when visiting us. That’s why our team uses various safe and relaxing sedation techniques to make your visit with us as stress-free as possible.
Some common sedatives include nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia. Let’s look at each:
Patients are often nervous before their first visit with a new dentist, especially for a more extreme procedure such as a root canal or tooth extraction. They will be much more at ease if they are calm and relaxed throughout the process, which makes the whole experience much easier for everyone involved.
Some patients have difficulty staying still during dental procedures because of past traumatic experiences or even anxiety over needing such extensive care. In these cases, they may be unable to keep their mouths open for extended periods. However, with sedation dentistry, they are fully relaxed and able to have all work done as quickly and effectively as possible.
With sedation dentistry, the patient can have dental work completed more regularly. This allows them to maintain their oral health and prevent minor issues from developing into major ones. This also helps prevent the need for more expensive and extensive procedures in the future.
While you may think dental procedures are painful, with sedation dentistry, many treatments can be completed with little to no discomfort. Visit Restoration Smiles: Adult & Pediatric Dentistry at 2 Coolidge St Suite 202, Hudson, MA 01749, or call (508) 658-0661 for the best dental care.
