Many people avoid dentists or delay treatments due to their fear of pain. Dental sedation has been a wonderful tool to soothe anxieties so you can take care of your oral health. Oral conscious, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation have paved the way for you to have your most beautiful, healthy smile! But did you know that these dental sedations help more than just anxiety? Here are five ways these calming treatments can benefit you and your smile!

Faster Appointments

 When sedation dentistry is used, less time will be needed for your dental procedure. As you relax, you’ll naturally move less, making it easier for your dental team to work efficiently. Your dentist will be able to quickly complete your treatment as you relax in the examination chair.

Allowing full consciousness

Since you will be fully awake and cognizant, you will be able to respond to verbal commands and physical touch. This also helps your dentist accomplish the goals of your procedure.

Relieving your memory from the treatment

You will not remember most of what happens during your dental work due to sedation. This is beneficial because it alleviates any negative connotations with your procedure. The time will also fly by!

Get More Done At One Time

Multiple dental procedures can be completed in one appointment with sedation dentistry. You will be relaxed enough to sit for an extended amount of time and your dentist will be able to work more quickly, so all your dental needs can be met in one appointment!

No Extra Recovery Time

 Sedation dentistry is able to help you get your dental work done without putting the rest of your day on hold. Nitrous oxide sedation wears off within minutes of the completion of your treatment, so you’ll be back to your normal level of consciousness in no time. This means you could visit your dentist during your lunch break and return to work after your appointment with no downtime. You can continue your day without the grogginess and recovery required from general anesthesia.

There are so many benefits of sedation dentistry that go beyond just helping with dental anxiety. Next time you are in need of some dental work, consider all the advantages so you can continue toward your best oral health!
