Do you look forward to going to the dentist? Up to 80% of all adults have a fear of going to the dentist. Some may even say they hate going to do the dentist and 50% of people don’t even go. How to overcome your fear of the dentist?
The easiest way to be more comfortable at the dentist is to find a dentist who ‘caters to cowards’ and tell them that you’re scared and ask for some form of sedation.
What are the different types of sedation?
There are 3 types of sedation that vary in how they can help you relax while at the dentist:
- Pill Sedation
- Gas Sedation
- IV Sedation
Pill sedation is where you take a pill to relieve the stress of being at the dentist and to help you forget your visit. At Indianapolis Dentistry we dispense the medicine directly so there is no pharmacy to visit.
Gas sedation uses nitrous oxide to help you relax during dental treatment and sometimes is used in conjunction with IV sedation when needed. It’s common name is laughing gas.
IV sedation allows the dentist to precisely control the level of sedation so that you can answer questions when needed or to even sleep through your next dental visit or oral surgery.
