Need Relief from Anxiety Over A Dental Procedure? Ask About Sedation Dentistry
If you suffer from anxiety while in the dentist’s chair, then sedation dentistry (or sleep dentistry) may benefit you. It is rather common for people to feel nervous while in a dentist’s chair. With sedation dentistry, Gresham Family Dentistry can lessen that anxiety for our Gresham patients.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry, also referred as sleep dentistry, allows your doctor to provide a variety of dental treatments safely and comfortably for patients who experience anxiety when visiting the dentist. Common ways which sedation is administered for sleep dentistry may be through the inhalation of nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, or by a pill which is taken orally before the appointment. We will discuss options for sedation with Gresham patients to find what suits them best prior to any procedure.
Why Do People Use Sedation Dentistry?
Gresham patients may opt for sedation dentistry for a number of reasons. Foremost is to counteract anxiety. Some people worry about potential pain, while for others the sound and feel of dental procedures may result in sensory overload. Sedation dentistry can also be used to calm a nervous child. However, it is also useful if you find you have a hard time sitting still, or if you have a hard time getting and staying numb from anesthetics.
