When we discuss sedation dentistry, we normally think of it in regards to fearful patients and finding a way to help scared patients ease into a dental appointment. However, when we limit sedation dentistry to fearful patients, we lose many of the benefits that could happen for you, the patient. One benefit comes for patients who are much too busy to withstand several appointments of a procedure.
In the past, before sedation was available, dentists would have to break long procedures into shorter appointments. No one can be expected to sit in the procedure chair for hours on end with only a bit of numbing. Yet, not all patients have the ability to make several appointments due to their busy schedule. Sedation dentistry allows for comfort in both areas.
The Sedation Difference
With the assistance of sedation, we are able to perform those complex procedures in one appointment. You can rest comfortably while we work efficiently in your mouth. Many of our patients are even able to sleep while we perform complex procedures!
