Patients are often nervous about their dental care check up or appointment, but here at Quality Dental Care, we don’t believe this should be the case. This is why we offer sedation dentistry services at our Omaha, NE, office, to help relax our patients and put their minds at ease before the procedure begins.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
More and more dental care offices across the country are jumping on board the sedation dentistry bandwagon, and for good reason. Sedation dentistry allows the dentist to operate on the patient while they are under a sedative. This helps relax the patient and allows the dentist to operate quickly and efficiently. Here at Quality Dental Care in Omaha, we offer several different types of sedation. Our sedation options are:
- Oral Sedation
- Sedative Pill
- Laughing Gas
You should consult with your Quality Dental Care dentist to decide which type of sedation is best for your sedation dentistry needs. The best sedative for you will vary depending on the procedure and needs of the patient.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
- Relaxation | The most obvious benefit of sedation dentistry is the ability to relax nervous and anxious patients. By administering a sedative before the procedure, the patient is much more relaxed and less aware of the details of treatment during the operation. If you suffer from dental anxiety or general anxiety, you may want to mention sedation dental options with your dentist prior to your appointment.
- Fewer Appointments | If you are in need of some serious dental work, sedation dentistry can help cut down the number of appointments. With sedation dentistry, complicated dental needs that usually require multiple appointments to complete can relax your body, so you’re able to sit through more in only one appointment. This will help save you time and money by reducing the number of appointments needed to correct the problem.
- Less Pain | Because the patient is physically relaxed with sedation instead of tensed up and flinching during the procedure, there is less initial pain. The patient will not fidget or move around during sedation dentistry either, making the dentist’s job easier and faster. There is less of a chance that the patient will move and cause the dentist to cause unintentional harm to the patient’s mouth.
