The Facts About Sedation Dentistry

June 11, 2021

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?

For instance, would you be surprised to learn that many patients struggle when our dentist has to work on their back teeth? Many people struggle with a sensitive gag reflex, which can make sitting in the dental chair difficult and uncomfortable. Fortunately, with sedation dentistry, you’ll be able to avoid this problem—even if our team has to reach your back teeth.

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.
