Fairport, Pittsford, and Rochester, NY
Many Americans are hands down afraid of going to the dentist. From the sound of the equipment, the smells, to the physical discomfort, dental visits can be downright scary for some. In fact, this fear can be so strong that a person even avoids going to the dentist at all costs.
Skipping out on those dental visits does more harm than good. Eventually, what may begin as a small issue that’s easy to fix, can turn into an even bigger problem, and a costly one at that.
Thankfully, it does not have to be this way. Sedation dentistry allows patients to receive their dental treatments while being mildly sedated. What this means is that while sedated, you will still have complete control of your body, and be aware of your surroundings to some degree except you will feel completely relaxed throughout your procedure.
Sedation is available in various modalities, so talk to the dentist to determine which one is right for you. It has been proven that sedation dentistry is completely safe and effective, even for children. The effects of your sedation will typically wear off shortly after your procedure, although you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
Sedation dentistry is especially ideal for patients undergoing a lengthy appointment, extensive treatments, or who have difficulty sitting still during an entire appointment. If you find that you experience anxiety towards going to the dentist, then consider sedation dentistry for your next visit. Everyone deserves a healthy smile; so do not delay an appointment because of your fears. Sedation dentistry can make a difference for you!
