Anxiety and fear associated with dental treatments are common across all ages and are major reasons why some patients might avoid visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax and is suitable for everyone who fears dentists and dental procedures.
Dental sedation helps calm down your nerves and increases cooperation by reducing anxiety or discomfort. Our doctors at Auburn Dental Center in Bakersfield, California, can help address all your dental concerns with compassionate care.
The various sedation options available at Auburn Dental Center in Bakersfield, California, include:
A dental visit can be ridden with anxiety for some people who are naturally more sensitive. Sedation dentistry can greatly reduce the amount of anxiety and pain experienced during dental appointments.
Working with a relaxed patient generally saves time and leads to better outcomes as well.
A moderate level of sedation is often preferred for dental treatments because it allows the patient to relax yet remain alert. Some drugs may have an amnesia effect. Therefore, patients do not remember the procedure.
Our dentists will make the patient comfortable using only as much sedation as necessary to allow for a positive experience.
Some people requiring dental work put off getting it done because they are scared of coming to the dental office too often. This usually has repercussions on their long-term oral health and they may end up with more complex dental issues in the future. Sedation dentistry allows such patients to undergo all the required procedures within a reasonable amount of time.
A mild sedative can greatly reduce gag reflex, making dental cleanings or procedures a comfortable experience.
