The Many Benefits Of Dental Sedation

White Rock, BC Dental Office | White Rock Dental Group

Dr. Rogers is a general dentist in Surrey/White Rock, BC who is certified to administer dental sedation in conjunction with any procedure in which it could help. You may not realize this, but there are multiple types of dental sedation. And contrary to popular belief, you won’t automatically drift off to sleep during your sedation dentistry experience. In fact, the oral medication you can get from our White Rock, BC dentist’s office allows for a conscious sedation. Conscious sedation can help ensure that your treatments at White Rock Dental Group will be more productive, and that’s what we wanted to talk about today. Keep reading to learn more, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your next appointment with Dr. Rogers.

Sedation Helps The Time Pass Faster

If you aren’t thrilled about spending your day at the dentist’s office, that can create some anxiety as time goes on. However, there is some good news: sedation dentistry can make the time required to work on your teeth and gums seem to pass a lot faster. In some cases, sedation can make it so you have very little memory of your procedure.

Get Your Goals Accomplished All At Once With Sedation

If we’re being honest, there’s a limit to how much a patient can handle before it’s been simply too much dental care for one visit. Fortunately, with the assistance of sedation, you can get the care you need, even multiple procedures, all at once. This can save you time and money in the long run.

Sedation Eliminates Your Gag Reflex

Many patients experience a subconscious gagging reaction that slows down or interrupts our plans for treatment. But With oral sedation your reflex will be relaxed along with the rest of your body, and we will be able to do work on your teeth and gums as planned.

Be Still With Sedation

Are you the sort of patient that can’t sit still for long periods of time? Then you are not alone! We have found that even mild levels of sedation can help patients like you sit still long enough to get the care you need.

Less Sensitivity Will Be Experienced

If you have teeth or gums that are so sensitive you can’t handle even the simplest of dental treatments, sedation can help with that too.

Here’s How It Works

Around here, we try to make it easy for you to get the high-quality dental care you deserve. Oral sedation is a pill that we arrange for you to swallow beforehand. This level will get you to a sleep-like state, while leaving you conscious. However, you won’t remember much about your visit when it is over. And you will definitely want to line up a ride home, because the effects do linger for awhile.
