Everyone is afraid of something. According to Colgate, “9-15 percent of Americans avoid seeing a dentist because of anxiety.” This common fear of receiving dental treatment makes bi annual trips uncomfortable for patients. Our team of experienced and compassionate dental healthcare professionals, have treated patients who have struggled with severe phobia their entire lives and this has been made possible through Sedation Dentistry. What is Sleep Dentistry? Sleep or sedation dentistry refers to a dental treatment that is performed under the effects of sedative medications. These perfectly safe medications can be administered in a number of ways, depending on the type of procedure being performed and/or the wishes of the patient. And they enable a particularly nervous patient to receive the treatment they need to maintain an excellent standard of oral health without the horrible fear and anxiety they typically experience. The great thing about sleep dentistry in Colorado Springs and Pueblo is that the body easily metabolizes the medication used, so patients need not fret about feeling awful afterwards or suffering a “hangover”. The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry The removal of all fear and anxiety is just one of the many benefits of sleep dentistry in Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Sedation also enables the dentist to do his or her job without contending with a patient who is terribly nervous. Procedures that might otherwise have to be broken down into smaller, more manageable sessions can be done in a single appointment without causing patients any undue stress or discomfort, which also benefits them in terms of cost and the results they can enjoy. Sedation dentistry not only helps anxious patients; it’s also great for those with a delicate gag reflex. Sedation has the effect of relaxing the muscles, thus enabling the dentist to get right into your mouth without causing you to gag.
