What Is Sedation Dentistry?
If you are terrified of dental work, Clear Lake Dental Care has great news for you. We offer sedation dentistry so you can get treated comfortably. This treatment is especially useful in patients with sensitive teeth, a strong gag reflex, sensitive gums, or a fear of needles and drills.
Sedation is the use of medication to help you relax during your appointment. Sedatives can be administered through a small mask placed over your nose, taken by mouth, or injected through IV. Sedation Dentistry is used to ensure patients feel no anxiety or discomfort during treatment, with little-or-no memory of the procedure after treatment.
When used for lengthy procedures, it can seem to patients that they have only been treated for a few minutes. This also allows extensive treatments to be completed in only one or two appointments.
Who Is A Good Candidate To Have Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation and pain relief are not the same things. At Clear Lake, we offer sedation to help patients deal with strong feelings of fear and anxiety that arise when they visit the dentist. After receiving sedation and successfully completing their appointment, patients often change the entire way they view dental appointments going forward. Sedation could be a great option if you:
- Have difficult overcoming anxiety about the dentist
- Have a low pain threshold
- Have very sensitive teeth
- Have a very strong gag reflex
- Need a large amount of work done
Once you’re sedated and comfortable, we then properly numb, or anesthetize, the area we are working on, ensuring that your procedure is pain free.
