Dental phobia can lead to dental decay, gum disease, toothaches, and tooth loss. You can take a step to protect your health and appearance by visiting your dentist. Fortunately, you don’t have to put yourself through any pain or anxiety to take this crucial step!
What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation is the administration of medications or anesthesia to provide the patient with a sense of calm and relaxation during their dental visit. A few common forms of dental sedation include:
- IV sedation, which is administered through the veins to make the patient relaxed or sleepy.
- Oral sedation, which is a prescription anti-anxiety pill provided by your dentist to be taken shortly before your visit.
- Nitrous oxide, which is a safe gas that is administered through a breathing mask to ensure a tranquil procedure.
- Regardless of which type of sedation dentistry is best for you, you need a qualified dentist to provide you with sedation dentistry and a safe and happy dental visit.
What are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry opens up a new avenue for dental care for patients who have been suffering from a dental phobia. Some of the benefits of dental sedation include:
Feels like Five Minutes | Patients who choose sedation dentistry often comment that their dental procedure felt like it was only five minutes! If you need to sit in the dental chair for an hour or more, you can treat yourself to a more tolerable experience with sedation dentistry.
Transform your Smile | If you want to have several procedures done to increase your health and enhance your appearance, you can accomplish them faster with sedation dentistry. Dental sedation gives many patients the tolerance to sit through several procedures in the dental chair so they can get more done in just one day.

You can achieve the healthy, beautiful, and functional smile that you deserve with the help of sedation dentistry. Safeguard your future smile and your self-esteem by visiting Dr. Ross or Dr. Earl.
A New Relationship with Dentistry | If you have had bad experiences with dentistry in the past, you can change the way you perceive dentistry forever by taking advantage of sedation dentistry.
