Why You Should Consider Sedation Dentistry

Fear of the dentist is very common and many people experience it. The fear can be very overwhelming and cause these individuals to avoid getting regular dental checkups or procedures even when there is pain and discomfort present. Not seeing the dentist regularly puts you at an increased risk of having a dental issue missed that may could have been easily treated but will develop into a more uncomfortable and serious condition. 

The FDI World Dental Federation indicates that almost 4 billion people across the globe have oral disease and more than half of the population of the world suffers from significant tooth decay. A healthy mouth doesn’t’ just mean healthy gums and teeth but also a healthier body. There are many implications that can take place throughout the body that degrade one’s well-being that stems from an oral health problem. McBride Dental is a San Marcos general dentist that can help you keep your mouth and your body strong through regular dental checkups.

Can Sedation Dentistry Help Ease Your Dental Fears?

Why You Should Consider Sedation DentistrySedation dentistry may not be the right choice for every individual who fears seeing the dentist, but for some, this option provides a welcome relief from anxiety. The California general dentist at McBride Dental offers sedation dentistry. So if you experience bouts of nervousness and unease when you just think about going to the dentist, call McBride Dental to see if sedation dentistry is right for you.

If you are a person who would never even consider going to the dentist, sedation dentistry may put you more at ease and allow you to get the care you need to keep your mouth healthy. People who suffer from the following are prime candidates for sedation dentistry:

  • General anxiety and fear when it comes to the dentist.
  • Inability to stay still and sit for a prolonged period of time.
  • Low pain threshold.
  • Very sensitive teeth.
  • Being unfamiliar with dental procedures which lead to fear.
  • Procedures that are very long in duration.

There are a couple of ways that you can be sedated while you have your dental procedure done including:

  • Oral sedation by taking a prescribed pill which lowers your anxiety and calms you down.
  • Inhaling nitrous oxide through a mask over your nose and mouth which helps combat pain and it will put you to sleep.
