Reasons to Take Advantage of Dental I.V. Sedation

Dental Anxiety Columbus

Does the thought of a root canal make you nervous? Has it been years since you last had a dental cleaning? Don’t let dental phobias compromise your oral health any longer. Talk to your family dentist about intravenous sedation. I.V. sedation is the use of FDA-approved medications that help you relax during your appointment.

I.V. sedation provides a medium level of relaxation.
There are different levels of sedation dentistry. The lightest level is delivered by nitrous oxide, commonly called “laughing gas.” Nitrous oxide is popular, but for many patients, it isn’t enough to let them get over their dental anxieties. That’s why so many people take advantage of I.V. sedation, which induces a deeper level of relaxation than laughing gas. Intravenous sedation doesn’t put you to sleep like general anesthesia. However, many people feel as though they did sleep during their appointments because they remember little of what happened.

Sedation dentistry can help you reclaim your oral health.
Perhaps the most compelling reason to take advantage of I.V. sedation is its ability to help you conquer your dental anxieties. Fear of the dentist’s chair is one of the most common reasons why so many people avoid getting routine check-ups. Unfortunately, if you don’t have a professional exam and dental cleaning every six months, the risk of developing extensive dental problems increases significantly. By the time you do get to the dental office, you’ll probably have extensive damage that requires treatment. I.V. sedation can let you reclaim your oral health by getting the care you need without the anxiety.

Sedation dentistry can combine multiple appointments into one.
If you need multiple root canals or other intensive dental treatments, you might have to schedule multiple appointments. But with I.V. sedation, dental appointments seem to go by much faster. This allows you to stay comfortable and relaxed even during lengthy treatments. Even if you don’t have dental anxieties, I.V. sedation might be right for you.
