Sedation Dentistry – Is It Good For Me?

Sedation Dentistry – Is It Good For Me?

There are certain dental procedures that make many people freak out when they think about them. For example, oral surgery, tooth extraction or root canal procedures are pretty scary and very many people are usually fearful or anxious about the prospects of undergoing such. It is for this group of patients that sedation dentistry was designed.

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry makes it possible for the dentist to carry out a myriad of dental treatments and procedures safely and in a very comfortable manner to patients who experience anxiety whenever they walk past a dentist’s door. With sedation dentistry, the patient will experience:

  • Any memory of the undergoing procedure
  • No sense at all during the time of the procedure
  • No sound or smell while the procedure is underway
  • No anxiety or fear during the treatment

With this type of dentistry, patients are treated in a simple and relaxed manner, taking the whole dentistry experience to a whole new level.

Is it good for you?

If you are suffering from real fear or anxiety which prevents you from visiting the dentist, then sedation dentistry would be good for you. Additionally, it is also good for patients who have a low pain threshold, have very sensitive teeth, don’t have the ability to sit still at the dentist’s chair and let the dentist do their job, have a terrible gag reflex and for patients who need a lot of dental work done. In some cases, sedation dentistry may be done to children if they are afraid of going to the dentist or if they can’t cooperate during the visits.

There are usually different levels of sedation available to both children and adults, and before the sedative is administered, the doctor will have a thorough look at the patient’s medical history to double check that the preferred method will be the most appropriate one. This is because there are always risks involved with sedation, hence the medical history is very important.
