Fear of the dentist affects millions of people. While the reasons for this can vary from person to person, it certainly has a detrimental effect on oral health. When you are anxious about going to the place where you need to go for treatment, you may postpone the treatment until it is too late to fix your problem.
At Powers Family and Implant Dentistry, one of the ways we try to alleviate this issue is by offering sedation dentistry. It could help you in a variety of ways.
1. You Can Relax
One of the big benefits of dental sedation is its calming effect. When your mind is at ease, you can sit through your appointment while we do our part to improve your oral health.
2. You Will Stay Pain-Free
Sedation has a powerful anesthetic effect. As a result, you can receive a wide range of services without feeling any pain.
3. You Won’t Gag
As sedation reduces your sensitivity, it also makes you much less likely to feel like you might gag during an appointment. If gagging is a concern for you, then sedation could be a perfect way to stop it.
4. You Have Options
We are among the few practices that offer three kinds of dental sedation:
- Laughing gas (nitrous oxide)
- Oral conscious sedation
- IV sedation
In other words, whether you have mild, moderate, or severe anxiety, we have a sedation solution to make your dental visits easier.
