Believe it or not, around 40 million Americans are afraid to go to the dentist because they believe the treatments will be painful.
While it’s true that some dental procedures can cause discomfort, modern science has created a solution to help patients with fear and anxiety to cooperate with dental treatments. This is known as Sedation Dentistry.
Most procedures that require drilling or extraction may not require sedation. Although depending on your comfort level, sedation is an option for root canal treatment, extraction, scaling and root planting, tooth trimming, and dental implant placement.
Below are considerations for the use of sedation in some dental procedures:
Fear and anxiety issues
Traumatic previous dental experience
Lack of response or allergy to local anesthesia
Sensitive gag reflexes
Several treatments are planned for one visit
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ)
