Sedation dentistry is becoming increasingly common in dental offices across the country. It involves the use of medication to place you in a more relaxed state throughout your dental procedure. Many patients have found that sedation dentistry vastly improves their dental experience.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of sedation dentistry is that it can help you overcome severe dental anxiety. If you have been putting off important dental treatments for years due to a fear of the dentist, you may want to consider sedation dentistry. During your procedure, you will be in a relaxed, often semi-conscious state. In many instances, you will not even remember much about your procedure when it is complete. Instead, you will just feel refreshed.
Sedation dentistry also allows Dr. Sands to perform multiple procedures at once. Often, you may require multiple office visits if you are undergoing several procedures that may take hours to complete in one sitting. But with sedation dentistry, Dr. Sands can reduce your number of visits to our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentistry office, reducing the time and expense of your treatment.
Other benefits of sedation dentistry include:
- Increased comfort throughout your procedure
- Minimizes your movements, making it easier for Dr. Sands to perform your procedure
- Helps patients with an active gag reflex receive important dental treatments
