Signs You May Benefit from IV Sedation During Your Next Dental Appointment

Going to the dentist doesn’t need to be an upsetting experience. Dentists want their patients to enjoy optimal oral health, but they also want to provide comfortable treatment services. Sedation dentistry can help patients remain at ease as their dentists perform necessary preventive and treatment procedures. You too can benefit from sedation dentistry by talking to your dentist about IV sedation if you suffer from any of the following circumstances.

You experience extreme emotional discomfort while at the dentist.
Dentists can typically administer topical and injectable numbing agents that eliminate pain during procedures. As a result, you may experience no physical discomfort while sitting in the dentist’s chair. However, even in the absence of pain, you may yet suffer from emotional distress. IV sedation can alleviate feelings of anxiety and fear that may not subside even when you cannot feel any physical discomfort.

You consistently delay or cancel your dental checkups.
No matter how diligent your at-home oral hygiene routine, periodic dental cleanings and examinations are necessary for good oral health. If you deliberately delay or cancel your dental appointments, you may be a good candidate for IV sedation. In just minutes, your dentist can put you into a calm and relaxed state so that he can provide the requisite dental care you need for strong and healthy teeth and gums.

You require extensive dental treatment services.
IV sedation can prove helpful even when you do not suffer from dental anxiety. If your dentist determines that you need several hours of dental work, IV sedation can make the process more manageable and comfortable for you. While your dentist provides your treatment services, you can rest easy for the duration of your care. Sedation dentistry can make several hours of treatment go by in seemingly a matter of minutes.
