Dental Sedatives: A Sure-Fire Way to Control Your Anxiety


Do you become nervous when thinking about an upcoming dental procedure? You might be surprised to learn that countless individuals are hesitant about a trip a dentist. The good news is that sedatives may represent an effective means to keep these fears in check.

There are actually several different types of sedation. Local sedatives are often used when performing minor procedures (such as cleaning your teeth or filling a cavity).

Moderate sedation is administered intravenously and can be used to provide general feelings of calmness.

There are even times when general anaesthesia may be useful (such as if a more invasive operation is being performed.

Here are some of the procedures which may apply to sedatives:

  • Tooth extractions
  • Root canals
  • Dental implant
  • We can now see that there is no reason to be afraid if you have the option to receive some type of sedating agent. Be sure to speak more about this with your dentist.

    “Millions of people feel anxiety, fear, and dread when they think about going to the dentist.”
