Does the thought of going to the dentist make your entire body tense with fear? Don’t worry, we can help.

Dental anxiety is extremely common. In fact, 75% of U.S. adults suffer from dental anxiety and 10% have dental phobia. But just because dental anxiety is common means that it doesn’t have an adverse effect on your oral health. Ignoring oral health problems because you don’t want to go to the dentist only lets these issues get worse, which means that more invasive treatments may be needed. Not to mention, poor oral health can also lead to many general health complications such as heart disease, digestive issues, diabetes, and more. Luckily, you can break the cycle and face your dental fears thanks to sedation dentistry.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry uses medication to help you relax during dental procedures. There are various types of sedation used in dentistry, including:

  • Inhaled minimal sedation or nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as laughing gas)
  • Oral sedation
  • IV moderate sedation
  • Deep sedation and general anesthesia

What Are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

 The advantages of utilizing sedation dentistry are endless, especially for those with dental anxiety or phobia. Some of the most noteworthy benefits of sedation dentistry includes:

  • Makes you feel calm and relaxed instead of nervous about being at the dentist.
  • Ability to undergo several treatments in a single visit.
  • No pain during treatment and less post-treatment pain.
  • Ensures you have little or no memory of your time at the dentist.
  • Improved oral health since you are able to keep up with your dental cleanings and exams.
