Sedation dentistry is a blessing for people who are extremely fearful or anxious when visiting the dentist. It is also a wonderful option for those whose mental capabilities make traditional dental work nearly impossible. Here at Georgian Shores Dental Centre, we want to assist you with all of your dental care needs without fear! Sedation dentistry involves being sedated while your dental care is performed. If you’re not sure if sedation dentistry is right for you, here are a few questions you might want to ask yourself before getting started.
- Does your fear of the dentist keep you from making/keeping appointments?
- Do you have a lot of work to get done?
- Are your teeth very sensitive?
- Do you know you have a low threshold for pain?
- Does dental work trigger your gag reflex?
These questions are just some that we ask our patients to consider when they are thinking about sedation dentistry. Even if you only answer “yes” to one of these questions, you should still ask your dentist about sedation dentistry options so that you can either address the problem or continue with your oral care and health in spite of the issue.
If you have been struggling with sensitive teeth, an overactive desire to gag in the dental chair, severe anxiety that keeps you from making appointments or any of the other issues listed or not listed above, you need to talk to a professional dentist like the ones we have here at Georgian Shores Dental Centre about your sedation dentistry options!
