If you are suffering from dental anxiety then sedation dentistry would be the very best option for you especially if your anxiety has prevented you from seeking dental treatment. Sedation helps to relieve you of your dental anxiety by relaxing your nerves and helping to put you at ease so you can receive your dental care. Also, there are different kinds of sedation meaning you can choose the best form of sedation that suits your needs. For example, if you have a fear of needles then instead of IV sedation you can receive Nitrous Oxide also known as laughing gas sedation to help calm your dental anxiety.
Why Is Sedation Dentistry Right For You?
Dental anxiety is not uncommon and if it is keeping you from seeking dental treatment sedation would be the best option because maintenance of your oral health is highly important. Also, your oral health is connected to your overall health meaning if you avoid seeking dental treatment you are putting your health at risk. When it comes to maintaining your oral health having regular scheduled appointments with your dentist is important for the prevention aspect of your oral health. This is because a dentist has the advanced technology to examine your mouth and see if there is anything developing within your mouth that needs treatment. Avoiding the dentist due to dental anxiety means you’re missing out on the most important preventative measures, and you run the risk of developing an oral disease. Sedation can help with your dental anxiety if your dental anxiety is associated with any of the symptoms below:
- Severe gag reflex
- Phobia of needles
- Fear of dental drills
