Sedation dentistry involves the use of sedatives to help patients relax through what would otherwise be painful procedures. Dentists are able to tailor the level of sedation to the patient’s needs by using different methods, and while some operations may only require mild sedation others such as wisdom teeth extraction may require the patient to be fully unconscious.
Dentists have deep knowledge and experience with how sedatives may be best applied during dental procedures. With this knowledge comes the assurance that your dentist will use sedatives appropriately, elevating the comfort level of your time spent in the chair. Ultimately, safety is improved through the use of sedatives as dentists are able to work more efficiently with patients that are more relaxed.
There are multiple benefits from using sedation during dental procedures, for both the patient and the dentists. Patient comfort and relaxation during procedures such as root canals, wisdom teeth extraction, tooth implants and crown placement are greatly improved through the relaxing and pain-reducing effects of sedative use. Additionally, because patients are more comfortable dentists are able to use their time during the procedure more effectively and ultimately improve the quality of the services they provide. In short, sedatives are an important tool in optimizing the dental experience.
