Sedation Dentistry

On highly common trait among Americans is Dental anxiety. It’s also one of the top reasons why many people skip their regular six-month teeth cleanings, oral exams, and other checkups that are critical to their oral health. Up to 15% of all dental patients have avoided going to the dentist because of dental anxiety according to the ADA.

At All Kind Smiles you can choose to reduce those anxieties with sedation dentistry.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry uses advanced pharmaceutical treatments to reduce your level of consciousness, avoid discomfort, and make sure that you’re comfortable during routine dental procedures.

At All Kind Smiles, we use oral sedation dentistry. You will get a pill to take before your appointment, and that’s all! The medication will make you less anxious and allow us to treat you, even if you’re nervous or have any anxieties.

For severe cases, techniques like IV sedation and deep sedation, or even general anesthesia, may be used. However, these dental anxiety solutions are typically unnecessary for most patients.

The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

There are a number benefits to sedation dentistry from All Kind Smiles. Here are a few of the most notable:

  • Enhanced Comfort: Oral sedation can help with making you feel more comfortable during your dental procedure and can reduce the fears associated with going to the dentist.
  • Anxiety Relief: For those who know that they will be sedated during your appointment, many won’t feel as anxious when visiting the dentist, which also makes it easier for to schedule their next dental appointment.
  • You Can Get the Dental Treatment You Need: If fear prevents you from coming to the dentist, your oral health could suffer. Tooth decay, gingivitis, and other serious problems can be caused by neglecting regular oral care. Sedation dentistry allows you to overcome your fear and get the care you need.
  • Faster Treatment: Dental anxiety makes it hard for a dentist to treat a patient as quick as they normally could. Anxious patients don’t tend to spend a long time in the dentist’s chair, so smile makeovers and complex procedures can take several appointments.
  • Sedation dentistry alleviates this problem, allowing you to undergo dental procedures quicker and get faster treatment for your dental needs.

Who Should Choose Sedation Dentistry?

Generally anyone can qualify for sedation dentistry. However, most people don’t need to be sedated at the dentist. You should consider sedation dentistry if:

  • You have missed past appointments due to your fear of the dentist
  • You suffer from serious dental anxiety
  • You have a very low pain tolerance
  • You have claustrophobia
  • You have a very strong gag reflex
  • You have extremely sensitive teeth
