Do you have trouble sitting on planes, trains or automobiles for too long and wonder how you’ll deal with sitting still when dental anxieties start making your antsy? Sedation dentistry can make a world of difference for you and others who struggle with being anxious about dental appointments. Find how sedation dentistry can make your time in the chair more Zen and less tense.
Sedation for Anxiety
For some people, it’s the fear of pain that keeps them from visiting the dentist’s office regularly. For others, they haven’t been to a dentist’s office in so long that they’re too embarrassed to go now. For others, still, they’re uncomfortable with needles. And the anxieties don’t end with that short list of triggers.
Whatever the source of your dental anxiety, a low dose of a sedative can help you relax and let your worries take a backseat for a while.
Sedation for Tolerance
Often times, it isn’t the pain that gets people concerned about going in for a dental appointment. For them, they’re anxious about a particular procedure they need that’ll require them to sit in the dentist’s chair for long periods of time. Relaxed by a sedative, it’s much easy to get stay cozy in the dentist’s chair for a long period of time.
Sedation for Sleep
Sedatives at all levels suppress the consciousness to some degree. In low doses, a sedative can suppress the consciousness just enough to put you at ease. And while your response times may be slowed, it typically takes a higher dosage of a sedative to put you to sleep. But if sleep’s what you prefer, a sedative can deliver. And when you wake up, all the things you’d been anxious about, concerning your appointment, will be behind you.
