The Benefits Of Sedation Dentistry For Tooth Extraction

The Benefits Of Sedation Dentistry For Tooth Extraction

Does the thought of having your teeth pulled make your entire body tense with fear? Well, you are not alone. The thought of having a tooth extracted can be scary to think about, especially if you already have a fear of visiting the dentist. For this reason, many dental offices offer sedation dentistry to make your visit as comfortable as possible while allowing your dentist to safely perform exams and procedures such as tooth extraction. 

At Dr. Korol Dental, we aim to provide you with a relaxing and comfortable dental experience. Using recent advancements in sedation dentistry that align with our holistic practices, Dr. Korol allows you to relax and enjoy numerous benefits of sedation dentistry while performing your procedure.

Top 5 Benefits Of Sedation Dentistry 

1. No more Fear And Anxiety
One of the most positive aspects of sedation dentistry is the relief of anxiety for many patients. It is not uncommon to have a fear of the dentist, even for simple procedures such as an exam or cleaning. Sedation dentistry allows you to comfortably sit through procedures while allowing your dentist to better perform the procedure at hand. While some patients only suffer from a little bit of pre-procedure anxiety, some patients can be completely overwhelmed with fear that a tooth extraction procedure or even a simple cleaning will cause excruciating pain. This prevents many people from receiving the dental care they absolutely need. And the more you put off a dental procedure, cleaning, or exam, the further your condition can progress therefore requiring even more invasive treatments. Sedation dentistry allows you to get the treatment you need right away, eliminating the risk of your condition worsening over time. 

2. Easier Treatment For Your Dentist
Whether you suffer from gum or tooth sensitivity, have a gag reflex, or simply cannot relax enough in the dentist chair to allow your dentist to accurately perform the procedure, dental sedation allows your dental team to perform the procedure without the usual stress and difficulties you may experience. With a calm and relaxed patient, the treatment will be performed faster and accurately. Sedation dentistry helps both the patient and the dentist as it allows the dentist to focus exclusively on the procedure. 

3. Comfort And Rest
Have you ever heard of anyone describing a dental appointment as their time to relax and unwind? Although it may sound unrealistic, it happens for many patients at Dr. Korol Dental thanks to the benefits of sedation dentistry. Not only will our team ensure that you are comfortable and cared for, sedation dentistry also allows you to rest quietly and calmly during the procedure. Many patients also note that their sedation experience provides a much-needed relaxing break from a busy life. 

4. Anterograde Amnesia
While in many cases amnesia is not a desirable outcome, in sedation dentistry it is. The phobia of visiting the dentist usually stems from an unpleasant experience the patient may have had in the past, and the fear usually grows over time with each visit to the dentist. However, with sedation dentistry, there cannot be additional build-up of the phobia because the mind cannot create new memories when sedated. This will also reduce the fear associated with future visits to the dentist. 

5. Pain Relief
No one enjoys tooth or gum pain. Pain is usually one of the top reasons as to why many people avoid the dentist and have a fear of visiting the dentist. With sedation dentistry, the pain and discomfort is completely removed. The brain cannot register pain while under the influence of sedatives and anaesthetics. Everyone wants pain-free dental care. It is one of the many reasons as to why sedation dentistry is so popular.

FAQ

It is recommended that you visit the dentist for an exam and cleaning once every six months.

Some patients may fall asleep once the sedation medication is administered. However, sedation dentistry is not the same as anaesthesia where it will put you into a deep sleep. Many patients are often awake during their procedure when administered sedation medication.

Your dentist will give you a prescribed amount of sedation medication based on your needs and the procedure they are performing.
