Sedation Dentist in Middletown explains the benefits of sedation dentistry

Some have an innate, built-in fear of the dentist that nothing will shake. Though a great dentist can help assuage those fears, some still require a bit of help to get in that dental chair and have their teeth cared for. This is where sedation dentistry comes in. For those looking for a sedation dentist in Middletown, Titus Dentistry and Dr. Jonathan Titus can give you the experience you need.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

For some, the thought of sitting still in a dentist’s chair while their teeth are being cleaned is terrifying; for others, like small children, it might just not be possible. Sedation dentistry is the use of light sedation to complete tasks regarding your dental health. That is a type of sedation generally where you are still fully awake, just calmer, and better able to handle what is being done.

There are some types of sedation, however, where you do go entirely under. Those are often reserved for severe dental work like extensive reconstruction, crowns, multiple fillings, root canals, and more. Sedation dentistry is a fantastic way to get your teeth worked on and cared for without worrying about the process. And without having to struggle with the fear that comes with dental work for some.

When is Sedation Dentistry Used?

In most cases, sedation is not going to be used when the dentist is just peeking inside the mouth. Your dentist can use it during cleaning, reconstruction, dental procedures that will take more than a few seconds, or in cases where the patient simply will not or cannot cooperate. Sedation dentistry is often used when children have to have some dental work as it does help make them more compliant and does also help make them less scared and therefore less aware of what is going on.
