Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Few people like going to the dentist. Many people dread it, and some experience crippling fear or anxiety. Instead of having to cope or suffer through what feels like an extremely traumatic event, patients can now choose sedation dentistry and get the dental care they need, in comfort.
Sedation dentistry can offer numerous benefits:
- Patients can undergo dental procedures without fear, pain, or anxiety.
- Sedation reduces the risk of patient movement or resistance, which can delay or interfere with the procedure.
- Sedation can facilitate the healing process and minimize muscle stiffness after the procedure.
Types of Sedation Used
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is the most common form of sedation used in dentistry. It is administered by placing a small mask over the patient’s nose. As the gas begins to work, the patient becomes calm but is still awake and can communicate. Other types of sedatives include intravenous medication, oral sedatives, and general anesthesia, where the patient goes into a deep sleep during the procedure.
If you have unease or discomfort about your next dental visit, talk to Dr. Robinette and his compassionate team to find the right kind of sedation treatment for you.
