Is Sedation Dentistry Right for Me?
Sedation dentistry is an effective way to reduce your anxiety about dental procedures.
It is a medically-based, compassionate approach to dental work that will help you feel more comfortable in a dentist’s chair.
Sedation dentistry relies on the use of approved medicines to alleviate anxiety or provide a sense of physical comfort for people undergoing dental work.
While less anxiety is alway a good thing, there are many other benefits of sedation dentistry.
Relaxed patients help procedures go more quickly and more smoothly increasing both their safety and efficiency. And sedation dentistry can also help people undergoing lengthy procedures or those with additional medical complications such as neck and back pain find comfort.
You may benefit from sedation dentistry if you suffer from any of the following:
- Fear, stress, or anxiety about going to the dentist
- A previous bad dental experience
- Painful or sensitive teeth
- Muscle soreness from tension after sitting in the dental chair
- Chronic back or neck pain that make it difficult to lay back in the dental chair
- You need complex treatment requiring long dental appointments or surgery
- You have limited time to complete your necessary treatment and want to accomplish a lot in a single appointment
How Does It Work?
There are many approved medications available to help create a more relaxed, comfortable visit to the dental chair.
Some drugs control pain, some help with relaxation, and some bring on a deep sleep during a dental treatment. These medications have important benefits and precautions. So it is important to talk to Dr. White about your concerns and your options for reducing anxiety and increasing your comfort with an upcoming procedure.
Typically Dr. White works with medicine that is either inhaled under his medical care (Nitrous Oxide) or a pill that you take at home prior to the treatment (Oral Sedation). Each option has important benefits and precautions to consider.
Talk to Dr. White about your concerns at your next appointment. He can provide guidance on the best option for you.
