What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is the term used to refer to a variety of treatment methods offered to those patients who have a fear of the dentist and may be afraid of having any kind of procedure.
It can sometimes be referred to as sleep dentistry, although this isn’t entirely accurate, because you won’t actually be asleep. You may feel sleepy with sedation medications, but their purpose is to help you relax and put you at total ease. This is different from general anesthesia.
Sedation treatments can be administered in a number of different ways but here at 32Whites we offer intravenous sedation as a way to give our patients a deep and peaceful sedative.
How can it help me?
If you’re in need of any kind of dental treatment, either for health or cosmetic purposes, but are anxious or afraid of the dentist, sedation dentistry could be suitable for you. Anyone who has a fear of needles can also benefit too.
If you have had a history of frightening dental experiences, you may be wary of being in a dentist’s chair again, but sedation dentistry can help you overcome this fear.
Other patients who may benefit from the treatment are those that have severe gag reflexes and find it hard to tolerate treatments in the mouth.
