7 Reasons to Consider Sedation Dentistry

slide 2:

Introduction ➢As the name suggests Sedation dentistry uses sedative agents to relax the patient prior to the dental appointment. ➢Sedatives mainly function on the central nervous system making the patient less conscious and drifts in a drowsy state to decrease the pain and trauma of a surgery or appointment.

Reasons to Consider Sedation Dentistry ➢Time Flies - While a surgery might take hours to complete sedatives can make the time fly and you might feel it took a couple of minutes to finish. In complex procedures like smile makeovers which take a considerable amount of visits sedatives can reduce the appointments. ➢Forget Pain - Sedation dentistry patients are more likely to visit the doctor and remove the fear of excruciating pain. Sedatives reduce the pain and might help to face your fears more often. ➢Relief Anxiety - Sedation dentistry is a dream for nervous patients. Patients generally become overwhelmed with the oral procedure and sedation can help to reduce anxiety and nervousness.

Reasons to Consider Sedation Dentistry ➢Little or No Memory - Sedation leads you to a twilight sleep mode which is quite lucid in nature. The best thing is the patient will have little to no memory of the procedure and decreases the chances of traumatic flashbacks or fear of oral surgery. ➢Reduces Gag Reflexes - If the patient is completely aware in the surgery patient’s mouth and gag reflexes can cause hindrance and delay to the methods. With sedation dentistry gag reflexes are paralyzed which enhance the dentists efficiency and speed. ➢Better Treatment - When a patient is sedated dentists can work more quickly and with enhanced focus. ➢Fewer Triggers - Sedatives can help patients cope up with triggering smells sounds or the environment around them. Drilling noises bright lights can create a lot of anxiety in the patients which sedatives can completely remove for the patient.
