Could Your Oral Health Improve with the Addition of Oral Sedation?

Posted on 7/10/2018 by Office Manager
Could Your Oral Health Improve with the Addition of Oral Sedation?If you are living with a fear of the dentist or dental anxiety, chances are good that you don't go in for appointments as often as you should.

However, with advances in sedation dentistry, there is no reason for you to fear the dentist any longer. With regular dental cleanings, your teeth will be healthier than ever.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Oral sedation is a type of conscious sedation dentistry, and it helps patients to relax while in the dental chair. Medications like diazepam, lorazepam, or triazolam are used to help the patient to remain calm throughout their cleaning or procedure. At the end, the patient will feel well rested with no memory of the session.

What Are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

There are many great benefits associated with sedation dentistry, so if you have anxiety about visiting the dentist, you should definitely request it as an option:

•  Comfort. Sensitive teeth or gums can lead to an uncomfortable dental experience. Sedation dentistry will help you to relax throughout your treatment.
•  Quick. Even the most complicated procedures can be completed within a single visit with oral sedation. When you are relaxed, your dentist can work for longer periods of time without the need for a second visit.
•  Special needs. Patients with autism or other special needs will be able to get the dental treatment they need without discomfort or hypersensitivity.

When you visit the dentist regularly, your teeth will stay in their best possible health. Dental cleanings are a necessity to remove harmful plaque and tartar, which can ultimately cause gum disease, decay, and cavities. It is easy to see that with oral sedation, people with a fear of the dentist will experience improvements in their oral health.

Even if you are living with dental anxiety, we can help. Call us today to learn about oral sedation and how it can leave you feeling more comfortable.
