Sedation Dentistry Can Calm Your Fears

WE ONCE OVERHEARD someone (NOT one of our patients!) compare dental visits to washing dishes—it’s something you dread doing, but it has to be done. In response to that, we’d like to suggest an analogy of our own…

What if
every time there were dirty dishes you could simply snap your fingers and they would be washed, dried, and back in your cupboard!

Although it doesn’t work quite as miraculously, sedation dentistry here at our practice DOES work in much the same way for many people who have trouble going to the dentist—providing patients with results that “feel” faster (and sometimes really are faster).

Sedation dentistry has proven helpful to many of our patients, for a variety of reasons and for a number of different procedures. Besides making your procedure virtually pain-free, sedation dentistry often helps people feel like their visit only lasted a few minutes—when in fact, it may have lasted for hours.

There are many different kinds of sedation dentistry. We work with you to determine what’s best for your particular situation. In some cases, sedation can be much like anesthesia during surgery. But more often, sedation doesn’t actually put you completely out. Most patients who choose sedation dentistry are awake, functional, and responsive.

One of the biggest sedation dentistry benefits is that procedures that typically take multiple visits can now be accomplished in one visit—saving you a lot of time, stress, and hassle. And obviously, the second biggest benefit is that patients who experience dental anxiety can better relax, resolving their fears or worries.

Dr. Pitts is very proud of and confident in our sedation dentistry methods. We are on the leading edge of this service as we continually update our skills and techniques.

To learn more about sedation dentistry feel free to send us a question through our contact page or give us a call. Or, next time you’re in our office, visit with one of us for more details. We look forward to helping you, a loved one, or friend better understand if sedation dentistry is right for you.
