Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
The benefits of oral sedation during dental procedures are many. For one, the patient’s nerves are calmed, relaxing their fears. A large percentage of the population have general anxiety when it comes to sitting in the dentist’s chair, so the option for sedation will be readily appealing to many. Secondly, sedation also increases the patient’s comfort level. With Oral and IV Sedation, pain killers may be administered. Pain is one of the biggest reasons for anxiety at the dentist’s office and knowing that there will be little to no pain or discomfort can go a long way in easing the patient’s visit. A third benefit is that with dental sedation, the patient generally has little memory of the procedure.
