Dental Anxiety? Boston Dental Offers Sedation Dentistry

Dental Anxiety? Boston Dental Offers Sedation Dentistry - Boston Dental

At Boston Dental, we understand the fear and anxiety our patients might face about dental treatment. In order to help our patients relax, we have created an environment that is relaxing and that makes our patients feel comfortable. For those patients that need additional care to feel relaxed when undergoing any dental services, our team offers sedation dentistry.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry utilizes medication to help patients relax during their dental procedure (i.e. oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry, general dentistry). There are different types of sedation but most often, we utilize minimal sedation to calm the patient during the procedure but they are awake.

Who Benefits from Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients with fear or anxiety that keeps them from going to the dentist office but is also appropriate for patients who:

  • Have a bad gag reflex
  • Have extremely sensitive teeth
  • Have a low pain tolerance
  • Can’t sit still in the dentist’s chair
  • Need a large amount of dental work done

How Safe is Sedation Dentistry?

As long as sedation is given by experienced dentists, it is very safe. However, our team at Boston Dental will ensure you are a candidate based off of your medical history to avoid complications.

  • Before your procedure, go over your medical history with your dentist, including any medications you are currently on
  • Confirm the dose appropriate for your age and weight

Your dentist will also provide you with a form to sign prior to the procedure and will monitor your vital signs during and after the procedure.
