O’Fallon Sedation Dentist Talks About What Types of Dental Patients Use Sedation

Dental sedation has become easier to use, more effective, and more accessible in recent years. Our O’Fallon dental team has helped patients of many ages get the treatments that they need calmly and comfortably using sedation treatments.

Today we are going to be talking about some of the types of dental patients who benefit from sedation dentistry. If any of these “patient types” sounds like you, sedation dentistry might be right for you! Feel free to call our dental team to get further information.

1. The person with a history of negative dental experiences

Sometimes people have had poor dental experiences in the past, and that causes them to avoid dental treatment in the present. If this sounds like you, the first thing to do is to discuss your concerns and dental past with our dental team—the more we know, the better we can help you! Sedation treatment can additionally help you feel calm and confident before and during treatment.

2. People who don’t like to feel “out of control” in the dentist’s chair

Some people experience dental-related anxiety because they feel immobilized and out of control in the dentist’s chair. If you utilize oral conscious sedation, you’ll feel calm during treatment, and you’ll always be conscious and capable of communicating with our dental team.

3. People who are avoiding pain the dentist’s chair

Oral conscious sedation not only dulls and/or eliminates pain during treatment, but it also has amnesiac effects. This means that you’ll be comfortable during treatment, and you also likely will not remember the treatment process when it’s over.
