Is Sedation Dentistry Right for You?

Is Sedation Dentistry Right for YouSedation dentistry makes dental care and good oral health possible for more patients. A variety of conditions and situations can make dental sedation desirable or necessary, including dental anxiety, neurological disorders, and intensive procedures. Here is more about dental sedation and how it might benefit you.

Dental Anxiety

Many people suffer from anxiety about going to the dentist and delay or avoid dental care as a result. These patients may miss not only necessary treatments, such as fillings, but also essential preventive care, including check-ups and cleanings. By opting for dental sedation, these patients can get the treatment they need to avoid developing more serious dental problems later.

Neurological Disorders

Certain neurological disorders can make it difficult or impossible for patients to remain still during dental appointments. Cerebral palsy, Tourette’s syndrome, and autism are three conditions that can make sedation beneficial depending on symptom severity.

Intensive Procedures

Some dental procedures may be so intensive or prolonged that most patients would have difficulty enduring the experience comfortably. For example, the extraction of multiple teeth and the placement of several dental implants are usually lengthy procedures. Even relatively simple procedures, such as fillings, may be difficult for patients with teeth sensitivity. Sedation can ease these situations, as well.

Three categories of dental sedation are available: inhaled, oral, and IV sedation. Depending on candidacy and the treatment involved, more than one choice may be offered. You can schedule a consultation with our dentist to find out more about our sedation options and the benefits they provide.
