Sedation Dentistry

Fear of visiting the dentist is one of the most common types of phobias. Fortunately, sedation dentistry can help put you at ease, whether you're having your teeth cleaned or you need a filling. Dr. Michael Wallace, your Edmond, OK sedation dentist at Wallace Family Dentistry, explain how sedation dentistry can help you.

Sedation helps reduce stress

Your sedation dentist will help you relax during your visit by offering oral, inhaled or intravenous medications that will relieve your feelings of anxiety and help you feel calm during your examination or treatment.

Pain won't be an issue

Although many people who have dental phobia say that they're afraid of the dentist, what most are actually afraid of is experiencing pain. Whether you had a bad experience at the dentist when you were young, or your phobia is more recent, sedation will not only help you feel more relaxed, but will also increase your tolerance to pain. In fact, less anesthesia may be needed when you're under sedation.

You won't need to return as frequently

Often when a patient has a dental phobia, only a small amount of work can be done in one visit before they become overwhelmed. A visit that normally takes an hour may have to be broken up into two or three shorter visits. When you take advantage of sedation dentistry, you'll be able to handle that hour-long appointment and won't need to return to the dentist's office in Edmond until your next checkup.

Everything will be less scary when you take advantage of sedation

If you have a dental phobia, the sights, sounds and smells of the dentist's office can make you feel nervous and fearful. When you choose sedation, those things won't bother you. After a positive experience, you may feel a little more confident about returning for your next visit. In fact, depending on the type of sedation, you choose, you may only have a hazy memory of the visit.
