Sedation Helps Reduce Stress
Your sedation dentist will help you relax during your visit by offering oral, inhaled or intravenous medications that will relieve your feelings of anxiety and help you feel calm during your examination or treatment.
Pain Won’t Be an Issue
Although many people who have dental phobia say that they’re afraid of the dentist, what most are actually afraid of is experiencing pain. Whether you had a bad experience at the dentist when you were young, or your phobia is more recent, sedation will not only help you feel more relaxed, but will also increase your tolerance to pain. In fact, less anesthesia may be needed when you’re under sedation.

A visit that normally takes an hour may have to be broken up into two or three shorter visits.

After a positive experience, you may feel a little more confident about returning for your next visit. In fact, depending on the type of sedation, you choose, you may only have a hazy memory of the visit.
