If you have a fear or aversion of visiting the dentist, then dental sedation
may be perfect for you. With sedation dentistry, medication is administered
that will relax you and relieve you of your anxiety during the procedure.
If you’re in need of a root canal, dental implant, dental crowns,
or dental veneers, look into
sedation dentistry in St. Louis. Read on to learn more, then contact Dr. Spalitto at West County Dental
if you have additional questions about sedation dentistry.
Dental Sedation Will Relax You
Dental sedation will calm your fears and eliminate the anxiety that you
may feel when visiting your dentist. If you tend to be anxious or on edge
during dental procedures, dental sedation may be necessary to ensure that
the dentist can safely perform the procedure without worrying that you
will move or jerk away suddenly. Sleep dentistry can give you a sense
of comfort and calm that you may not have experienced in other visits
to the dentist. This can make your visits much less scary and overwhelming,
and even encourage you to visit your dentist more often.
Dental Procedures Will Seem Faster and Easier
Sedation dentistry is often called sleep dentistry. This is due to the
fact that although you do not actually fall asleep during the procedure,
you do feel very calm and relaxed. This sleepy feeling you will experience
can make a long dental procedure seem much faster and easier than it would
if you were not sedated. The medication that your dentist administers
will help you achieve a feeling similar to a trance, which may even cause
you to forget most parts of your dental surgery.
Sedation Dentistry Encourages Dental Visits
Many people avoid regular visits to their family dentist because they
assume they will experience pain and discomfort. A sedation dentist, such
as Dr. Spalitto, can help you overcome this dental fear, as you become
accustomed to the fact that your dental procedures will be performed while
you are relaxed and calm. This will encourage you to visit your dentist
more frequently, resulting in improved oral hygiene and dental health.
