Is your fear of the dentist keeping you from accessing the oral healthcare services you need? Here are 5 reasons why you may want to consider our sedation dentistry services. 

Do you suffer from a fear of the dentist? If you feel anxious before your dental checkup, you’re not alone! Sadly, for some Canadians, this anxiety prevents them from accessing the essential dental treatment they need, which negatively impacts their quality of life, including their physical, psychological, and social well-being. 

Even if you do suffer from dental anxiety, visiting your dentist regularly is very important because they: 

  • Are able to detect early signs of problems such as tooth decay and gum disease, lowering your long-term dental costs and need for extensive treatment. 
  • Can perform cancer screenings and catch any potential issues early on. 
  • May be able to lower your risk of serious health concerns such as heart disease and stroke.
  • Will be able to give you a brighter and more beautiful smile.

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Sedation Dentistry

Does the thought of visiting the dentist make you a little nervous? At Dr. Korol Dental Clinic, we take the necessary steps to ensure that your visit is an enjoyable and anxiety-free experience. 

Whether you suffer from dental phobia, or you simply have a mild aversion to someone working on your teeth, here are 5 reasons why you should consider sedation dentistry:

1. You Have a Fear of the Dentist 

One of the most common reasons patients opt for sedation dentistry is due to fear or anxiety over a visit to the dentist. With sedation dentistry, you will be able to fully relax and experience an overall sense of well-being. In addition, you won’t feel any pain or anxiety during the procedure. 

With sedation dentistry, you’ll still be awake. Depending on your needs and the treatment being performed, there are various levels of sedation that can be used. Often, it will be enough to allow you to relax and enjoy a positive experience, but it won’t put you completely to sleep. 

2. You Can Enjoy Quicker Treatment Times 

If you do get nervous or anxious when visiting your dentist, a significant portion of your treatment time will be spent trying to help get you comfortable. With sedation dentistry, you’ll be relaxed and your dentist can get right down to work. 

Knowing that you’re at ease from the very beginning means that your dentist is able to work much more efficiently, completing the procedure in less time and even producing better outcomes. 

3. You’ll Save Trips to the Dentist 

Due to their duration, there are some dental procedures that require multiple visits to the dentist. However, sedation dentistry keeps you comfortable so that the entire treatment can be performed in one longer appointment. 

Sedation dentistry can save you time and money. By eliminating the need of a second and/or third visit, sedation dentistry not only saves you the hassle of frequent visits to the dentist, but it will also lower your dental costs. 

4. It Will Eliminate the Gag Reflex 

If you have a very high gag reflex, it can make dental treatments extremely uncomfortable. Any tools or hands that go deep inside the mouth can trigger this reflex, delaying and interrupting your dental treatment. 

If this is the case, your dentist may suggest a mild form of sedation dentistry that will help minimize this gag reflex and allow them to perform the treatment uninterrupted, while keeping you more at ease. 

5. Enhanced Quality of Life 

For patients who suffer from severe anxiety of dental treatments, the thought of an upcoming procedure can affect their quality of life for days, or even weeks, before the treatment. The good news? Your dental appointment doesn’t have to take away from your enjoyment of day to day life! 

When you choose sedation dentistry, you can rest assured that you have an effective plan of dealing with your anxiety during the procedure and you can remind yourself that this service will help make the experience a lot more enjoyable. 

 

Enjoy The Incredible Benefits of Sedation Dentistry 

Whether you need a tooth extraction, an implant placed, or a small filling, sedation dentistry is an option. Our dentists can evaluate your current medication and underlying health concerns to determine whether or not you are a candidate for this dental service.
