Saint Louis Sedation Dentist Helps Patients Determine Whether They Can Benefit from Sedation Treatment

Written by Dr. Grayem on Dec 17, 2013

Our Saint Louis dentist office understands that dental treatment can be nerve wracking for some patients. If you tend to feel anxious when you consider dental treatment, sedation treatments may be able to help you get the dental care you need without unnecessary stress.

The best way to figure out whether sedation dentistry is right for you is to contact our Saint Louis sedation dentist for a consultation. When we are able to talk with you, and understand your specific needs, we can recommend calming treatments that suit your situation.

But in order to get a general idea of what sedation dentistry can do, let’s talk about for whom sedation treatments are designed.

1. The nervous patient

If you have ever canceled a dental appointment because you felt too panicked to come in, you probably suffer from dental anxiety. Dental fear and anxiety are quite common in adult patients—the important thing is that you do not let this fear negatively affect your oral health. Sedation dentistry will allow you to drift peacefully through treatment.

2. The busy patient

If you need to complete a substantial number of dental treatments in a relatively short period of time, sedation dentistry may be able to help you reach your goals. Our dentist is generally able to complete more treatments in a shorter period of time using sedation dentistry.

3. The pain-avoidant patient

People with sensitive teeth and gums also choose sedation dentistry for a number of reasons. For these patients, sedation dentistry both puts them at ease and dulls dental pain.
