What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Common Questions from Our Valrico Patients
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentists work to calm patients’ fears and anxiety when receiving dental care. Too often, people postpone or neglect vital dental procedures that can improve their health and well-being. Sedation dentistry, sometimes referred to as sleep dentistry, helps patients who may have some or all of the following experiences with visiting the dentist:
- Patients afraid of needles or drills
- Patients with a strong gag reflex
- Patients uncomfortable in dental chairs or offices
- Patients with high-anxiety
- Patients with traumatic previous experiences with other dentists
- Patients who require a lot of work on their teeth
Even people who dislike feeling numb can benefit from sedation dentists like Brandon FL sedation dentist Jeff Bynum, who offers several relaxation and sedation options to his patients to fit their needs and circumstances. From relaxation dentistry to “laughing gas” and from local anesthetics to safe and effective sedatives for conscious sedation, Dr. Bynum will consult with you to determine the most appropriate methods to reduce your fears of the dentist. We are well equipped to answer the common question, “What is Sedation Dentistry?”.
Is Sedation Dentistry The Same As Sleep Dentistry?
Conscious sedation dentistry is sometimes referred to as ‘sleep dentistry’, yet this isn’t entirely accurate. Sedatives administered in our Valrico sedation office do not cause patients to fall asleep; rather, they experience a calming, relaxing state of being that lowers feelings of pain and reduces patient anxiety and fear while staying awake and alert throughout the dental procedure.
Another term often used for sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry, is fear-free dentistry because it takes away the anxiety and pain so many people associate with going to the dentist. With the care and concern of one of Tampa’s top sedation dentists, Dr. Bynum, you no longer have to be afraid of your next dental visit.
