Reasons For Sedation

Sedation dentistry can be extremely beneficial, making it easier to visit the dentist.

Below are the primary reasons to consider sedation dentistry.

Dental Anxiety Or Fear
If you suffer from dental anxiety or fear that makes it hard for you to visit the dentist, sedation can help.

Trouble Getting Numb
If you have trouble getting numb and/or have a reaction to Novocain, sedation can help you.

Complex Dental Treatments
If you’re typically able to undergo routine dental procedures without the aid of sedation, but are feeling anxious about more complex treatments, sedation can help you.

Sedation dentistry can be used for complex dental treatments, such as:
•crowns and bridges
•dental implants
•root canals
•teeth extractions (including wisdom teeth extractions)
cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers

A mild form of sedation (laughing gas) can even help with basic cleanings.

Severe Gag Reflex
If you have a severe gag reflex, which gets triggered by dental treatment, sedation can help.

Physical Disability
If you have a physical disability that makes it difficult to tolerate dental treatment, sedation can help.

Large Block Of Treatment In A Single Visit
If you’d like to get a large block of dental treatment completed in a single appointment, sedation can help.

If you – or someone you love – have been putting off a trip to the dentist, give sedation a try. It could make a major difference, helping you regain and maintain your good dental health.
