This type of dentistry is the most common one used to diminish patient fears. The practice is easy to implement, and it does not require needles. In many cases, the experience is so comfortable, patients do not even remember the treatment. They feel as though they were asleep during their visit.
One of the top advantages of sedation dentistry is how short the visit may seem. You may feel as though your procedure lasted a few minutes. In reality, it might have lasted for hours.
This is how very complex dental treatments can be reduced in length. A smile makeover or complicated restoration treatment might require several visits. With sedation dentistry, fewer appointments may be needed.
Sedation dentistry could also prompt a fearful patient to go to appointments. Someone who normally postpones or cancels visits will likely suffer from poor oral health. By choosing to be sedated, that person can get necessary care for optimal health
