Anxiety-free care with your Worcester sedation dentistry!

How long have you been avoiding the dentist? Did you have a bad experience 5, 10 or even 20 years and never went back to the dentist? If this describes you, you’re not alone. Statistics show that nearly one-third of adults avoid the dentist because of extreme fear and anxiety.

Dental offices are not the most comfortable environments. There are many sounds involves, and the poking and prodding with the various dental tools can put a person on edge, especially when they feel trapped in a chair. If your fear of the dentist has led to dirty teeth, toothaches and dental problems, you need to visit the dentist right away and get your teeth healthy again. Sedation dentistry can help.

Which patients benefit from sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is an option for patients who suffer from a variety of anxious and uncomfortable conditions, including:
  • Patients with Dental Phobia.
  • Patients undergoing long dental treatment sessions.
  • Patients who have trouble sitting still.

Sedation dentistry, as the name implies, sedates you while you are in the dental chair. If you are highly sensitive to the sights, sounds and other dental office experiences, you don’t have to avoid the dentist anymore. Your dentist has various sedation options that can help you relax. In fact, you don’t even have to be awake during the procedure. Sedation dentistry is very safe if done by a trained professional. It is also very effective and convenient. You won’t feel any pain during the process.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is considered the best method for dentists. It is easy for the patient – you simply take a pill before your appointment. Once you reach a certain level of sedation, your dentist begins the dental work. The patient maintains a certain level of consciousness but does not remember the visit. They may spend several hours in the dentist’s chair but it feels like just a few minutes.

Before any sedative is administered, you will have a consultation with your dentist to review your medical history. Patients are monitored very closely during sedation.
At the end of the treatment, you’ll likely have little memory of sitting in the dentist chair. When sedated, you will feel limp, relaxed, and lethargic.
During oral sedation, patients are closely monitored. You will be relaxed and vaguely aware of the procedure, but the dentist and their team will make it their goal to keep you comfortable and relaxed.
There aren’t any major side effects of dental sedation other than being groggy for a few hours after the fact. Some people do experience dry mouth or shivering following the sedation. You may have some leftover soreness after the sedation wears off if you got your tooth pulled for example. That’s pretty normal with or without sedation though.

Does going to the dentist make you feel nervous? You should talk to them about sedation dentistry.

It can help you get through any procedure no matter how anxious you are with little to no side effects. So try out sedation and relax your dental phobia away.
