Does the mere mention of dentistry leave you in cold sweats? Has it been years since you were last able to take a seat in a dental chair, all because of severe dental fear? Did an urban legend about dentistry gone wrong ruin your ability to seek treatment calmly?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is time to talk with your dentist about the potential benefits or sedation. You probably already know that sedation can help keep you comfortable during extensive restorative treatments, but did you know that it can also be used to help keep you calm leading up to and during many dental procedures? This allows even very anxious patients to get the dental care they need without all the worry they could do without.
