SEDATION DENTISTRY FOR YOUR COMFORT
Dental Care in Complete Comfort
If you’ve ever put off or delayed important dental treatment due to fears of going to the dentist, we don’t blame you at all. After all, your fears probably stem from experiencing pain at the dentist in the past, and your brain is hardwired to tell you to avoid pain at all costs. Even if your logic tells you that it’s a necessary pain for your greater good, it’s hard to override fear once it grips you. However, when this fear gets the better of you, it can interfere with your choices, causing you to prefer to suffer increasing tooth decay or toothache rather than set foot in a dentist’s office. We want better things for you than that.
Fortunately, there’s something you can do about it: Sedation Dentistry.
Contrary to what you might think, sedation dentistry is not typical general anesthesia. In other words, having sedation dentistry doesn’t mean that we’ll put you completely to sleep during your procedure. While some types of dental work do involve administering general anesthesia, for more extensive dental procedures, sedation dentistry just means that you will be given medication that helps you to relax during your procedure. You might be so relaxed that you actually even fall asleep, but it will be a natural sleep from which you can be awakened easily.
Sedation dentistry is a great option to help your dental treatment be as comfortable as possible for you.
People who are good candidates for sedation dentistry:
- Anyone who experiences fear, anxiety, or mental anguish at the thought of having dental work done
- People who have a low pain tolerance
- Anyone who has difficulty sitting still in the dentist’s chair
- Patients who have extremely sensitive teeth
- People who have a bad gag reflex
- Anyone who needs a large amount of dental work completed
We look forward to working with you to provide you with quality dental care in a comfortable, relaxed manner. Call our sedation dental offices in sarasota at (941) 893-3576 to find out more about sedation dentistry.
