Are you afraid of going to the dentist because you’re worried about pain? Many people are anxious about having dental treatment because they have a fear of pain. In many cases, when we carry out complex procedures on nervous patients, we offer sedation. This is a technique that can help to prevent pain and help you feel more relaxed. If you’re nervous about climbing into the dental chair, here are 3 reasons to opt for sedation:
- Preparing for your appointment: it’s very common for people to feel incredibly anxious in the run-up to a dental procedure. Sedation can help to make you feel less anxious and more relaxed before you go to the dentist, as it gives you peace of mind that you’re not going to be in pain. If you know that you’re going to be sedated and you’re prone to anxiety, this makes the preparation stage much more manageable.
- Comfort and calmness during the procedure: sedation is used widely in medicine and dentistry as a means of helping patients to remain calm while they have a procedure. When you’re sedated, you feel drowsy and slightly sleepy, but you won’t lose consciousness. You won’t feel pain, and hopefully, you’ll find the experience much less daunting. If you’re undergoing dental treatment, it’ll be over before you know it, and hopefully, you’ll feel less anxious about having treatment in the future.
- Pain prevention: a fear of pain is one of the most common sources of anxiety for dental patients. With sedation, we can eliminate the risk of pain, enabling you to undergo the treatment you need without any worries at all. We’ll do everything possible to make sure you’re comfortable throughout the procedure. After sedation, it’s common to feel a little groggy, and we’ll keep an eye on you until you feel ready to head home. We advise asking a friend or partner to give you a lift or accompany you on the tube or train as you won’t be able to drive for 24 hours.
