You have an intense fear of the dentist. Just the thought of
visiting their office makes you break out in a cold sweat. Unfortunately, this
means you have gone without checkups and cleanings for a while, so you probably
have several cavities and other problems that need work. Luckily, there are
ways to deal with this, such as seeing your sedation
dentist in Friendswood. Here are 3 ways that sedation dentistry can benefit
1. Cures Your Fear of the Dentist
Does the idea of getting dental work done strike fear into
your heart? Or even just make you a little bit nervous? Maybe you had a negative
experience at the dentist’s office when you were younger. Perhaps you have
general anxiety around needle or noise. Whatever the case may be, oral sedation
in Friednswood can help. It puts you in such a state of deep relaxation that
you can receive the care you need, completely worry-free.
2. Saves Time
Maybe you need multiple procedures done, but you don’t want
to schedule several different appointments. You can’t afford to take that much
time off work or school. That’s where sedation dentistry comes in. It allows
you to get all the dental work you need in one sitting. Cosmetic procedures in
particular can be quite long, so many patients opt to be sedated for those
3. Soothes Sensitivity
If you have sensitive teeth or an overactive gag reflex, you
already know that going to the dentist can be a major source of anxiety. Thankfully,
sedation numbs those areas. You will be so relaxed that you might not even feel
any pain at all. In fact, most patients report that they had far less soreness
after treatment when they were sedated than when they were fully present.
No matter what your aversion to the dentist is, you can most
likely benefit from sedations dentistry. If you experience dental anxiety, are
busy, or are just sensitive to pain, ask your dentist if they offer sedation.
It will make getting the care you need a whole lot easier!
