But you might be surprised how well dentistry has evolved over the years. Sedation dentistry can make going to the dentist something you don’t mind so much. It can transform your dental experience.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Dental anxiety is a real thing. Just the thought of sitting in that chair is enough to make some people delay seeing the dentist. Sedation dentistry takes away some of that anxiety for you. Through sedation dentistry, you feel at ease while undergoing dental procedures, and it will also make the experience pain-free.

Who Can Benefit From Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry benefits those with any form of dental anxiety. So, if you have a fear of coming to the dentist altogether, have had a negative dental visit, or feel claustrophobic in the chair, sedation dentistry might be your best solution. Whatever the reason for the anxiety, sedation dentistry provides the relaxation you need to get proper dental care.

What Types of Dental Sedation Are Available?

There are varying levels of sedation. Your dental professional will decide which one is right for you. One of the most common is nitrous oxide or laughing gas. This is a medication you inhale through a mask or sometimes a nosepiece. It offers a calming effect that wears off after stopping the medication.

There is also oral conscious sedation. This involves an oral medication, a pill, that you take around one hour before the procedure. The medicine will make you groggy and may even allow you to sleep. The sedation is mild enough that you wake up quickly if nudged.
