Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

January 27, 2012

By: Dr. Colin Richman

The days of suffering through dental treatments are a thing of the past. With today’s high tech dental equipment and spa-like atmospheres, your dentist and staff are pleased to welcome you to the best that dentistry has to offer. Most dental procedures can be completed quickly and efficiently with little or no physical discomfort.

Fortunately, your emotional comfort is just as important to your dentist as your physical comfort. Significant advances in sedation dentistry allow your sedation dentist to create a more controlled and comfortable atmosphere for you. Increased levels of sedation can lull most patients to sleep during the procedure, but the benefits of sedation are far more important.

Your ability to relax can improve the overall results of your dental treatment. Simply feeling calm and stress-free gives you the freedom to fully comprehend your dentist’s recommendations for your health. Rather than focus on your anxiety or fear, you can concentrate on the procedures that are necessary to restore your smile and eliminate disease.

A calm and well-rested patient can also have a soothing effect on the dental team. In fact, the entire dental staff can focus more carefully on your needs as you are guided through each phase of your treatment.

Your sedation dentist has access to a variety of common medications that have been proven to be safe and effective for most patients. As a precaution, your dentist is specially trained to evaluate the status of your health as well as respond to any dental office emergencies, including basic life support. Your level of sedation will be dependent on your general health and your level of tolerance for dental care.

Sedation dentistry has enabled millions of patients to voluntarily seek the dental care that they need with minimal stress and anxiety. Only your dentist can determine the method of sedation that is right for you.
