Everyone has something they’re afraid of at least a little bit. For some people it could be spiders, for others it could be snakes. It doesn’t have to be an animate object for you to be scared of. Take dental anxiety, for instance. There are people out there that do suffer anxiety when they go in for a dental appointment.

What Exactly is Sedation Dentistry?
It’s basically help for people who suffer from dental anxiety more than others. Like, to the point where they refuse to receive any treatment at all. This doesn’t bode well for their overall health.
Typically, there are three types of sedation dentistry techniques that are used:
Each one administers a certain amount of anesthesia that is meant to keep you conscious but out of it. Depending on how comfortable you are with “not being with it” will depend which method is used.
There are plenty of benefits to choosing sedation dentistry:
- You can overcome the fear and anxiety of going to the dentist in one visit
- There’s no pain you have to worry about
- The procedure can last longer, which means less appointments
- It’s a major money saver as it means less procedures and more money in your pocket
