IS SEDATION DENTISTRY RIGHT FOR YOU?
A lot of people do not go to their dentists and miss out on regular dental visits. This increases their chances of making their problem bigger. These people actually dread the visit to their dentist because they have what we call dental anxiety. It is a fear of unknown where you feel stressed about going to your dentist without any reason at all.
At Jacaranda Smiles, we make sure all our patients get a treatment to their problems as well as their dental anxiety. This is the primary reason why we use sedation dentistry. Here are some benefits of sedation dentistry.
Benefits of sedation dentistry.
Relaxing – It is very relaxing for the patient when a dentist sedates them. The patient will be awake but won’t feel a thing. They will be completely relaxed and will not even remember their visit once the sedation is off. It would feel like someone teleoprted them from before the visit of dentist to after it.
It can help anyone – Even if you do not suffer from dental anxiety or fear, it will be a great help to you. It helps people with sensitive teeth as sensitivity can hurt teeth and cause a lot of pain. Also, it helps people who have a low tolerance to the pain.
Types of Sedation
Oral – This is the most common sedative out there. We will suggest you to take it before 30 minutes of your dental appointment and you will be ready to go when you reach your dentist office.
Nitrous oxide – Nitrous oxide also known as laughing gas is very easy to control. The major benefit of this type of sedation is that the patient will be completely conscious as soon as the gas is turned off. It is suggested when the patient has some work to be done after the appointment.
