Why Do You Need Sedation Dentistry?

You love going to the dentist, so why would you need to ask about sedation dentistry? Here are a few good reasons:

You have quite a bit of treatment to complete.

Needing a few fillings, a crown, or a combination of other dental work all done can seem overwhelming. These treatments usually need to be broken up into a few different appointments so that you don’t have to have your entire mouth anesthetized for hours after your visit. However, with sedation dentistry you can elect to have all of your treatment done in just one visit. This saves you valuable time and helps you get your oral health under control more quickly. 

You need to have wisdom teeth extracted.

Involved procedures like removing wisdom teeth are best done under sedation. Why? Because it keeps you comfortable and allows the dentist to work quickly. Without having to worry about your comfort (because if you’re sedated, you will have the maximum level of comfort), your dentist can complete the procedure in less time than if you were fully conscious. 

You just don’t want to know what’s going on.

Are you one of those people who just want the dentist to complete your treatment and not hear the sounds and procedures going on in the background? You’re not alone! Many people are perfectly comfortable having dental work done, but they would rather tune it all out. Sedation dentistry treatments allow you to do just that!

There are several types of sedation dentistry available. Call your dentist to find out which types of sedation are available, and understand which one might be the best one for you.
