For many people, going to the dentist is a fearful experience. They don't have a clear idea about what will happen while cleaning the teeth or other procedures. Sedation dentistry helps you to remain calm and happy during the entire process. At Tots N Teens, we offer a safe, friendly, and calm environment for children of all ages.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry helps us to relax during a dental procedure, reducing anxiety and nervousness. There are various types of sedatives, including:

  • General anesthesia
  • Oral conscious sedation
  • IV Sedation
  • Nitrous oxide sedation

5 Reasons to Consider Sedation Dentistry 

Can Remain Awake

Sedation is a type of medication that is commonly thought to make you fall asleep. However, sedation has many types. There are those like general anesthesia that renders you unconscious. And there are other types that keep you semi-conscious. But they all relax your body, which is the main idea behind sedation dentistry.

Speed of the Process

If the patient is relaxed, the dentist can complete the task as soon as possible. It will reduce the delay due to your anxiety and nervousness.

Avoids Panic Attacks

Getting nervous during a dental procedure will affect you emotionally. The anxiety can unmask other fears. By choosing sedation dentistry, you won’t need to deal with the pain and anxiety during the entire dental procedure.

Get All the Work Done Without Interruptions

There are basic procedures in dental care like cleaning after cavity filling and so on. Sometimes, it may take a lot of time because of the patient’s uneasiness. With sedation dentistry, all the treatments and procedures will be completed on time.

Subdue Your Gag Reflex

Some patients have a gag reflex that is more sensitive than others. This may take more time than others and it may cause a negative experience. The dentist can perform the tasks peacefully if the patient is under sedation.

Be assured that the dentist will check your overall health and determine the sedation option that best suits you at the time of appointment. Some underlying health issues can badly affect sedation. So, you’ll need to inform the dentist about your medical history.
