It’s very easy to feel like you need to simply buck up and get over it if you’re someone who deals with dental anxiety. However, whether you get some minor jitters or serious nerves kick in, this outlook may set you up for failure! When anxiety takes over, you may simply feel unable to follow through with care that you require for your smile. Good news: Dental sedation can help. While we provide a full variety of sedation choices for an even wider variety of reasons, let’s cover some we hear quite often!
Reason: You’re A Little Scared
How do you feel about coming in for your visit? If you find that you’re somewhat scared of your visit, whether because of a certain procedure or simply because it’s something that just happens, first recognize that this is very, very common. Then, recognize that this is one of the main reasons we offer dental sedation. Whether you require nitrous oxide, oral sedation, IV sedation, etc., we will identify the anesthesia that will help you reach the level of relaxation you need.
Reason: You Gag Very Easily
If you feel like you gag just thinking about the dentist (don’t worry, this doesn’t offend us!) then you might stay home instead of getting the care you need. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeon team understands how this can get in the way of your ability to receive essential treatments. Fortunately, dental sedation will help, so you and your body feel at ease.
Reason: You Want The Visit To Feel Quick
When you know you’re going to be spending an extended period of time in our chair, this might cause you some anxiety. Rather than feel like you have to lie back and count the minutes, we may suggest sedation. The time will fly by, you’ll be done with your visit, and you can look back on the experience with a smile.
