5 Questions About Sedation Dentistry

For many people, one thing stands in the way of a healthy, beautiful smile – fear of the dentist!  Even routine cleanings can be scary for folks with dental phobia. However, Bangor dentists Dr. Sevey and Dr. Sigwart make it our business to offer you the most comfortable dental experience possible, which is why Creative Dental Solutions offers sedation dentistry services. There’s a lot of misinformation floating around, so here are the facts about sedation dentistry.

What is sedation dentistry?

For millions of Americans, even the thought of visiting the dentist is terrifying. As a result, many people avoid dentists altogether and miss out on a healthy, happy smile. Sedation dentistry is the answer to dental anxiety, aimed at relaxing patients for a comfortable, enjoyable experience.

Who is it for?

Sedation dentistry is generally intended for those whose fear of the dentist might prevent them getting the dental care they need. If you suffer from dental anxiety, sedation dentistry might be the perfect solution. It is also great for patients with high tolerances to anesthesia, strong gag reflexes, or who have jaw pain.

How does it work?

Your Bangor dentists will give you medication before or during your procedure, such as anxiety pills or nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Whatever your preference, the sedatives will help melt away your fears and allow for a pleasant, relaxed experience. Just make sure you have someone to drive you home.

Will I be asleep?

Sedation dentistry does not involve the use of general anesthesia, so you will not be put to sleep during your visit to the dentist. However, the methods and medications used often relax Creative Dental Solution’s patients so much that they fall asleep on their own.

Where can I get it?

Many dentists offer sedation dentistry options now, but the best way to find out more information is to call your Bangor dentists Dr. Sevey and Dr. Sigwart. Creative Dental Solutions is committed to providing every patient with premium dental care and a comfortable experience. We offer the highest quality sedation dentistry services to make your visits as comfortable as possible. Contact us today to find out more or schedule an appointment.
