O’Fallon Sedation Dentist Describes How Sedation Helps Dental Patients

Written by Dr. Brace on Dec 17, 2013

As dental technology advances, our O’Fallon dentist office is able to provide our patients with more comfortable and stress-free dental care. We are always learning about the latest dental innovations, so that we can provide you with the best dental experience possible.

Sedation dentistry has come a long way in recent years. Our dental team has helped numerous patients complete cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments with sedation dentistry. Read on to get a better idea of whether you too can benefit from sedation treatments.

Innovative sedation dentistry is designed to help:

Patients with debilitating dental anxiety—these patients go to great lengths to avoid dental care. They may even schedule dental appointments, feeling like they can handle it, only to panic and cancel treatment at the last second. These patients need to be calmed prior to treatment, so that they can make it into the dentist’s chair.

Patients with sensitive/pain-prone teeth—if your teeth and gums often hurt during dental treatment, sedation dentistry will help to eliminate this pain. When you are under the effects of sedation dentistry, you will feel comfortable and relaxed the whole time.

Patients who are undergoing extensive dental work—sedation dentistry actually allows our dental team to complete more dental treatments in a shorter amount of time. When a patient is sedated during treatment, he or she can also undergo more consecutive treatments without feeling physically, psychologically, or emotionally fatigued.

If you see yourself on this list, or if you would just like to learn more about how sedation dentistry works, our O’Fallon sedation dentist office is here for you. Feel free to contact our dental team and schedule your personal consultation. When we meet with you, we will be able to give you a better idea of how sedation can benefit you, specifically.
