When You’re too Embarrassed to Ask About Sedation

Sedation dentistry is a great option if you’re nervous about going to the dentist, have a longer-than-usual treatment procedure or simply have had bad experiences with dentists in the past. While it’s a perfect choice for just about everyone, many people are still embarrassed to ask whether or not sedation is an option for them – feeling that they will be judged by the dental team as someone who can’t sit through a routine procedure. Not so!

Remember, Your Dentist Wants You to be Comfortable

Each of us has a different level of comfort, and each type of dental procedure feels different as well. When it comes down to it, even a mild case of the nerves can impact how the procedure goes. For the absolute best outcome without the “what ifs,” ask your dentist about having sedation added on to the appointment.

Sedation Makes Your Visit More Efficient

One of the most crucial parts about your entire procedure is managing your comfort and ensuring that nothing hurts. When you choose sedation, your comfort level is dramatically increased. This makes it possible for your dentist to work much more efficiently and reduces the length of the entire procedure. 

Even if You’ve Never Needed Sedation Before, You Can Try Something New

Being able to “tough out” dental treatment just because you have in the past isn’t a good enough reason to avoid sedation dentistry. In fact, it’s all the more reason to try it out to see how it works for you!

Enjoy a new type of care approach where you can sit back, relax, and let your dentist do the rest! Ask about sedation during your next treatment.
