Do you hate going to the dentist? Maybe you begin feeling nauseated or anxious just thinking about it. The good news is that sleep dentistry is now an option available to those who have a tough time dealing with the dentist. This type of dentistry is often referred to as sedation dentistry as well; since it involves some kind of sedation that helps you relax or achieve a twilight sleep during the dental treatment. If you’re not familiar with this form of dentistry, here is a closer look at what it is and what you can expect.

Sleep dentistry is an advanced form of sedation dentistry that uses certain drugs to put you in a dreamlike state of sleep. This allows you to stay relaxed and calm while you have the dental procedure done. The great thing is that when you wake up, you probably won’t even remember the smells, needles, noises or anything else that occurred during the dental procedure. This means you won’t deal with any fear, anxiety or discomfort while you are at the dentist.

Not only does sleep dentistry help fearful patients get their dental work done without anxiety and pain, but it also offers patients the ability to have more complex dental treatments done in a single treatment, since they are relaxed and do not feel any pain. It also is an excellent option for patients that may have special needs or handicaps.

If you choose this type of dentistry, there is no need to worry because you are carefully monitored the entire time. Vital signs are monitored and you are never alone while you are sedated. You will be required to have someone else drive you home from your appointment, since you’ll be in no condition to drive after the sedation occurs.

Who should consider using sleep dentistry? It works well for those who fear dental devices, dental treatments or even needles. It’s also a great choice for those who hate the tastes, noises and smells that come along with dental care. People who get anxious about dental visits can benefit from this option as well. Those with strong gag reflexes, sensitive teeth and those who require extensive work may want to use this type of dentistry too.

You don’t have to fear going to the dentist anymore. It’s possible to maintain good teeth health without all the anxiety that comes with visiting the dentist. With sleep dentistry, you can relax through the entire visit and avoid remembering the visit at all.
