Is sedation dentistry right for you?
The state of your overall health, mental stress level at the time of your appointment and other issues may influence whether or not you are a good candidate for sedation dentistry. If you have heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, respiratory diseases or other health risks, you may have to visit your doctor before being approved for sedation dentistry. There are several types of sedation dentistry, including local injections, pill-form, and laughing gas.
You are a good candidate for sedation dentistry if you find yourself highly stressed before and during your dental visits. Some people experience physical symptoms of this stress, such as headaches or stomach cramping. Other people are merely unnerved at the very idea of seeing the dentist, or upon seeing tools used in a typical appointment. Because their adrenaline may be excessive due to “fight or flight” syndrome during the appointment, a normal stress response, some people cannot achieve adequate numbing through local anesthesia dental injections. Whatever your issues with stress in visiting the dentist, dental sedation can likely help.
