Why consider sedation dentistry?

People may consider sedation dentistry for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Dental anxiety: For many people, simply the thought of visiting the dentist can cause feelings of anxiety and fear. Sedation dentistry can help to alleviate these feelings, making it easier to get the dental care you need.

  • A strong gag reflex: For those with a strong gag reflex, even routine dental procedures can be difficult. Sedation dentistry can help to reduce the gag reflex, making it easier to complete necessary dental work.

  • Need for extensive dental work: For those who need extensive dental work, such as multiple fillings, extractions, or other procedures, sedation dentistry can help to make the experience more manageable and less stressful.
