Which Patients Benefit Most from Sedation Dentistry?
Many individuals avoid the dentist because of extreme fear of the dentist's chair. Whether they're sensitive about what happens to their teeth, are afraid of experiencing extreme pain, or have had an unpleasant experience at the dentist in the past, these fears and anxieties can keep patients from getting the care and attention they need to have a happy, healthy mouth! Many will avoid making regular check-up appointments and cleanings because of this fear. This is where sedation dentistry can help--it can get you in, out, and on your way while eliminating the anxieties you may have about going to the dentist.
Which patients benefit from sedation dentistry? Sedation dentistry at Hidden Lakes Dental in Bolingbrook is perfect for two main types of patients--those who are extremely fearful of visiting the dentist, and those who are undergoing several procedures in one visit. For those patients who are fearful of visiting the dentist, sedation dentistry allows them to get to the office in a comfortable, relaxed state, and leave them with little to no memory of the appointment afterwards.
For patients who are undergoing several procedures, sedation dentistry allows an individual to have many different treatments completed in one visit. This eliminates the need for several costly visits to the dentist, and allows the ability for a complete smile makeover in just one day. Many hours in the dentist's chair can be daunting, so by utilizing sedation dentistry, the patient can relax and not recall the long hours spent in the office.
