Reasons to Consider Sedation Dentistry

Not everyone enjoys going to the dentist. However, there are some people who flat out fear the dentist. Dental phobia is not only a very real condition, but it is also more common than you may think. In fact, according to a Dental Products Report, “one-third of the EU population avoids going to the dentist because of dental anxiety or fear.”

We know that professional dental care is paramount to keeping a healthy mouth and body. If you are putting off dental visits due to anxiety or fear, you should know there is a solution that can bridge the gap and help you experience dental care in a comfortable and rewarding way. Sedation dentistry is not just for those with special needs or invasive dental treatments, it is an effective, safe and easy solution for the average anxious dental patient.

What Does Sedation Dentistry Involve?

Most dentists, including those at TruDent Clinics, offer two options in sedation dentistry: oral conscious sedation (taking a sedative medication prior to your appointment) and general anesthesia in a contracted hospital.In fact, you will be able to communicate with your dentist as you wish during the treatment.

When Is Sedation Dentistry Used?

There are no strict rules or qualifications for receiving sedation dentistry. Most patients that are in good overall health can receive sedation dentistry. As a guideline, if you would otherwise avoid the dentist without it, then sedation dentistry is right for you.

Patients can receive sedation dentistry for a simple dental cleaning or lengthy restorative work. Sedation dentistry is an excellent choice if you have the following:

  • Fear of needles or pain
  • Aversion to sounds (drill) or smells (latex) of the dentist
  • Sensitive gag reflex
  • Special needs/physical limitations
  • Difficultly sitting still
  • Bad experience at the dentist as a child

At TruDent Clinics, we’d like for you to discover how comfortable and relaxing dental care can be. If you feel anxious or fearful about your upcoming dental visit, please let us know so that we can explain your options for sedation dentistry and better prepare for your appointment.
