Do you struggle with going to the dentist? If you do, don’t stress. There are plenty of individuals who carry the fear of going to the dentist. Going to the dentist is a vital part in keeping your teeth and the rest of your body healthy. So trust us when we say that you should not avoid the dentist. If you are one of the many individuals who are limited when going to the dentist because of fear, Dr. Middleton’s dental practice in Riverside, CA now offers sedation dentistry to calm your nerves!
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It’s sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry,” although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake with the exception of those who are under general anesthesia.
Sedation is most appropriate for people with a real fear or anxiety that is preventing them from going to the dentist.
Sedation dentistry may also be appropriate for people who:
- have a low pain threshold
- can’t sit still in the dentist’s chair
- have very sensitive teeth
- have a bad gag reflex
- need a large amount of dental work completed
