What You Should Know about Sedation Dentistry

People who suffer with dental anxiety, or dental phobias, may need a dentist who can provide sedation. Sedation dentistry allows dentists to treat patients who are normally too scared to have their dental issues fixed.

There are different types of sedation. Anti-anxiety medication helps patients relax for their dental appointments, so they are comfortable during a regular checkup. Other levels of anesthesia are necessary for dental procedures.

Not all dentists provide sedation dentistry and dentists will need to assess each person’s medical needs carefully.

Key takeaways:

– Laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, is a short-lasting sedative so you do not need to be accompanied to the appointment.

– Most other types of sedation will require you to have an escort in order to get you home safely, as you may still be drowsy after treatment.

– It’s important to let your dentist know your full medical history and any allergies, so that they can use appropriate treatment and monitor you safely.

Sedation dentistry means that you can have your teeth checked and treated while feeling relaxed, comfortable and safe.

“Sedation dentistry is for people who experience moderate to severe dental anxiety to the point that it prevents them from receiving the care they need from their dentist.”
