Believe it or not, but quite a few people suffer from severe dental anxiety. Sometimes, the anxiety can be so bad that it prevents people from visiting the dentist for their regular dental care. Without that regular care, their oral health deteriorates quickly.
That’s why sedation dentistry is so important. It provides people with a calming, enjoyable experience while at Mountainside Family Dental. With that in mind, let’s take a deeper look at just how sedation dentistry is effective.
How does it help?
Sedation dentistry helps people who suffer from dental anxiety by calming them when they’re in the dental chair. By being relaxed, patients are able to undergo any procedures they need without that nervous pit in their stomach. After a few visits using sedation dentistry, patients may find they’re able to come into Mountainside Family Dental without the need for sedation since they’re now used to the process.
How does it work?
Sedation dentistry is administered differently depending on your situation. Some people may need more sedation than others, depending on their level of anxiety. If you have severe anxiety, you’ll likely receive some sort of IV sedation where you’re barely conscious. If your anxiety is mild, laughing gas is a great way to help you relax.
