Our Saint Louis dentist office does everything possible to put our patients at ease during treatment. Some patients find it enormously helpful to use sedation dentistry treatments to facilitate dental treatment. Today we are going to be discussing some of the ways that sedation dentistry can benefit dental patients.
When you come in for a consultation with our dental team, we will determine what type of relaxation therapy, specifically, is right for your situation. We will take into account which dental treatments you are pursuing, your medical history, and your level of dental anxiety.
You may be interested in pursuing sedation treatment for any of the following reasons:
Minimize pain and discomfort in the dentist’s chair
If you are undergoing extensive dental treatments, sedation dentistry may help you avoid experiencing pain and discomfort as our dental team restores your smile. From nitrous oxide to oral conscious sedation, we have a sedation therapy to fit your procedure.
Optimize the efficiency of your dental appointment
A little known, but very helpful, benefit of sedation treatment is that it allows our dental team to complete a greater number of dentistry treatments in a shorter period of time. If you are pursuing multiple dental treatments, our dental team will likely be able to treat you faster if you are sedation.
Lower your anxiety level
Sedation therapies will allow you to feel calm and confident both before and during dental treatment. If you are someone who struggles to maintain your recommended schedule of professional dental cleanings, sedation dentistry may help you reclaim your oral health.
