How Dental Sedation Curbs Dental Anxiety

Posted By: Highgrove Dental Care

Many people suffer from dental anxiety or phobia—worrying the night before a dental exam, avoiding the dental office altogether, and dreading treatment. If this sounds like you, it’s important to find a compassionate dental team who offer options to help you get the care you need without the stress.

Without dental treatment, you are at risk for periodontal disease, leading to tooth loss and even body health issues involving the heart.

At Highgrove Dental Care, we always use a gentle hand when treating patients and anesthetize thoroughly when performing invasive procedures.

For those who need extra reassurance, we can also provide sedation dentistry in St. Paul, MN.

Sedation Dentistry Helps You Get the Care You Need

We never want our patients to forego dental care because of anxiety. For this reason, your St. Paul dentist offers dental sedation.

This allows you to relax and, in most cases, not even remember your treatment. With sedation dentistry, you can enjoy a healthy smile without the anxiety!

How Sedation Dentistry in St. Paul Works

In our dental office, we rely on oral conscious sedation. If you choose this option, your dentist takes a health history and collects a list of your current medications to make sure it’s a safe choice for you.

If sedation dentistry is a safe option, you take a pill when you arrive for your dental appointment, and we will not start treatment until the medication is in full effect. During your procedure, we monitor you closely.

When you wake up, you will likely not recall your dental treatment, but you will need a friend or family member to drive you home. Your sedation can last a while, so we suggest not making any important decisions on treatment day.
