Sedation Dentistry in North Ogden, Utah | Cobble Creek Dental
DENTAL TREATMENTS HAVE COME A LONG WAY. Gone are the days when we equate the dentist with pain and suffering. Dental anxieties and phobias are dangerous for our oral health, as they lead people to put off dental visits. Dental issues can become much more severe problems if not treated quickly. Thankfully, today we have effective, painless dentistry through sedation.
The benefits of sedation dentistry allow even the most uncomfortable patient to overcome their fear and anxiety and give them a new positive dental experience.
Depending on the needs of the patient, we have various types of sedation, including:
- inhaled sedation (nitrous oxide aka laughing gas)
- IV sedation
- oral conscious sedation
Each form of sedation is great for specific situations. For patients that suffer from anxiety, sedation dentistry can provide all sorts of benefits.
#1 Pain-Free Experience
No one likes pain, especially in the mouth. Some people are scared of invasive dental procedures and sharp, pointy dental tools. However, the brain cells do not register any pain stimuli while under the influence of potent sedatives and anesthetics.
#2 Sedation Dentistry Provides Anxiety Relief
Probably the most positive aspect of sedation dentistry is the relief of anxiety for nervous patients. Sedation dentistry allows them to go through their procedures comfortably and removes any fear.
Some patients have a little pre-procedure anxiety, while others become completely overwhelmed with dental phobia. Although everyone can benefit, the more anxious a patient feels before the procedure, the more benefit from sedation dentistry in North Ogden.
#3 Procedure Performed with Ease
Some surgeries are complicated and invasive. They can induce stress and discomfort in patients causing a gag reflex that can be a huge hindrance. Sedation dental care comes in handy, as it relaxes the muscles, and there are fewer chances of gagging. Thus it helps the dentist perform the treatment smoothly and with fewer disruptions.
#4 Rest Easy with Faster Procedures
It is often difficult to sit still on the chair while the dental professional does his job. Dentists prefer sedation in these cases. It helps the patient rest without fidgeting and squirming around in the chair during the procedure. It has been the most effective option for a pediatric dentist when kids get restless quickly.
Not only that, but your dentist can work faster and more efficiently because they don’t have to worry about your reaction to the dental procedure. Meaning he will be able to get you out of the chair and on the road to recovery that much quicker.
If you have been avoiding having some much-needed dental work because of anxiety, you are a good candidate for sedation dentistry. Regardless of whether you need dental implants or you want a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure like teeth whitening, Cobble Creek Dental has got you covered.
