You probably know that you should visit our dentist regularly, but what can you do if you have dental anxiety? While you may know that sedation dentistry can help you deal with your anxiety, but did you know that it could also help with a number of other issues?
Even if a patient doesn’t suffer from dental anxiety, patients who have a sensitive gag reflex could benefit from sedation dentistry. These patients could feel like they’re about to vomit while their pearly whites are being worked on. This is especially problematic if our dentist has to work on your back teeth. With sedation dentistry, you’ll be able to avoid this problem.
If you have serious pain in your back or in your neck, you may struggle to sit in the chair for an extended amount of time. As you’ve probably guessed, sedation could also help you have the work you need while staying comfortable during your visit. Sedation dentistry can also be useful when local anesthetic fails. It can sometimes be difficult to numb some areas of your mouth. And some people simply react poorly to local anesthesia, making sedation dentistry even more important.
