What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation or sleep dentistry helps patients who have dental phobias or need extensive treatments. Dentists can calm patients with sedatives ranging from mild relaxers to full general anesthesia.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Sedation Dentistry?

Dental patients who may need sedation dentistry include those who need longer procedures or who have any of the following:

  • Dental phobias
  • Strong gag reflexes
  • Medical conditions that are aggravated by stress
  • Low pain thresholds
  • Sensory issues affected by sounds and smells

If Sparks sleep dentistry sounds like a good option for you, your dentist will see if you qualify. Generally, you will need to be in good health and not have any conditions that could affect how you handle sedation.

How Common Are Dental Phobias?

Data shows that about 36% of the population is affected by dental anxiety or fear. About 12% of patients experience extreme fear, which is considered a dental phobia. While there are different types of dental phobias, these patients typically avoid dental care because of these fears.

Benefits Of Sedation Dentistry

Absolute Dental wants to make quality dental care easy and accessible for everyone. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry for patients who need a little help to stay on top of their oral health. Some benefits of sleep dentistry include:

1. Anxious Patients Can Get Essential Dental Care

People who experience dental anxiety or fear can get the essential treatments they need without feeling stressed during the procedure. We will work with you to find the right level of sedation to keep you comfortable.

2. The Dentist Can Work More Efficiently

When patients are particularly unsettled, it may be difficult for the dentist to focus. It can also be dangerous if the patient suddenly moves or behaves irrationally during treatment. Sedation allows the patient to feel relaxed and the dentist to complete the procedure more efficiently.

3. Patients Feel No Pain During The Procedure

Sedation also takes away any pain the patient may feel during the dental treatment. People who are fearful of dental pain or have sensitive mouths may benefit from different types of anesthetic.

4. Sets Dental Patients Up For Success

Overall, sedation dentistry is the ideal solution for those who avoid dental care due to phobias, dental anxiety, or fear of pain. After a successful treatment under sedation, these patients are more likely to keep up with their oral health.
