Improve Your Next Dental Appointment with Sedation Dentistry
At North Canyon Dentistry, our priority is creating an environment where patients of all ages can feel comfortable receiving dental care. While some may find regular cleanings and check-ups to be a simple part of keeping your smile healthy, others may find themselves facing anxiety and stress when it comes time to schedule their biannual cleanings. For these nervous patients, as well as those who have a hard time remaining calm during dental visits, Dr. Mack offers dental sedation as a means of improving your overall dental experience.
Why Choose Dental Sedation?
Often recommended for patients suffering from dental anxiety or phobia, dental sedation is a medication that can be administered either as an inhalant, as a pill, or intravenously. As dosages are carefully monitored and personalized to each patient’s comfort needs and overall health, sedation can be safely applied to almost any procedure for any healthy individuals.
There are a number of advantages that accompany dental sedation. Sedation encourages feelings of relaxation and calmness throughout dental visits. As a result, patients who have experienced negative dental visits in the past often find sedation a helpful way of making appointments less anxiety-inducing and more positive. Because sedation is tailored to each patient’s specific comfort level, some patients who do not wish to remember any part of their visit can receive the form of medication which allows them to forget all details of their treatment. With this in mind, sedation dentistry helps create a positive environment where all patients can receive the dental care they need.
Sedation dentistry isn’t just beneficial for individuals with dental fears, however. For individuals preparing to undergo multiple treatments in one visit, dental sedation helps shorten perceived treatment time, making the appointment feel as if it’s going by faster than it truly is. Additionally, patients receiving more complex dental care, such as wisdom teeth extraction or dental implant placement, may find that sedation combined with local anesthesia helps eliminate nervousness and ensures successful, pain-free visits.
