Ease Your Fear of Going to the Dentist With Sedation Dentistry

Many people avoid the dentist because they’re anxious about the pain during procedures or they have a fear of needles. As a result, more patients are unable to maintain their dental care or tend to delay their treatment due to being afraid of going to the clinic.
Instead of early treatment, delaying the treatment they need may pose a risk of worsening the problem or leading to serious health problems. While yes, dental procedures can be uncomfortable at times, this worry should not hinder you from getting the oral care you deserve.
Sedation and sleep dentistry are available at Darch Dental Centre. They can help you feel calm and at ease during dental treatments. You’ll still be awake but won’t feel pain. This option can benefit individuals who feel afraid or needs to undergo lengthy procedures. The dentist can administer the sedation orally, intravenously (IV), or inhalation (nitrous oxide). They can begin administering before a patient receives anaesthesia, particularly if they have a fear of needles. It allows the dentist in our practice to work and complete the treatment more efficiently when you feel relaxed during the process.

Benefits of Sleep Dentistry

At Darch Dental Centre, we know that dental procedures can be a hassle and stressful. Fortunately, advances in dentistry created methods to ease the discomfort that most individuals experience during their visits. Sleep dentistry provides various benefits for both dental patients and dentists. We list some of the below:
  • Relief pain. Dental anxiety is a common issue that can interrupt dental procedures. However, sleep dentistry can help reduce fear and make the process more comfortable. This way, you and more patients can receive the care they deserve on time and smoothly.
  • Makes your feel comfortable. Sedatives and anaesthesia temporarily block the sensory in the brain responsible for feeling the pain.
  • Allow the dentist to work faster. When you are under the influence of powerful sedatives and anesthesia, you won’t be squirming around in the dental chair. There won’t be unnecessary stops during the procedure as the dentist will not have to worry about your reaction.
  • Reduce gag reflex. Most of the time, the dentist needs to go deep inside the oral cavity and having a sensitive gag reflex can be an obstruction while working in a patient’s mouth. With sedation dentistry, this is no longer an issue as the gag reflex is paralysed.

FAQ's About Sleep Dentistry

The following circumstances can make someone a good candidate for sleep dentistry:

  • Individuals who are nervous about undergoing dental procedures or feel anxious about seeing a dentist (dental anxiety).
  • Someone with an overly sensitive gag reflex.
  • People who are afraid of needles or getting injections.
  • Patients who feel claustrophobia when sitting in the dental chair.
  • Difficulty controlling one’s movement or having trouble sitting still.
  • Individuals with special needs (cognitive, behavioural, or physical).
  • Individuals with sensitive teeth and gums.
  • Patients that seem not to respond well with local anaesthesia.

Sleep dentistry involves using different medications and methods to condition your brain to slow down activity, making your body feel relaxed. The sedatives begin to work once they enter your body; they will block the nerves in your body system that signals any sensations to your brain. As a result, you won’t feel pain and discomfort. The dentist will closely monitor your vitals and oxygen levels for safety purposes.

There are various options for sleep dentistry, and the way of administration will depend on the type you and your dentist choose. Common sedation options are intravenous (IV) sedation, nitrous oxide, and oral sedatives.

Sedation and sleep dentistry can be used for almost any dental treatment, from simple to complex. But it is generally recommended for more invasive procedures, such as those involving oral surgery and taking quite a long time to complete. We highly suggest consulting the dentist if you think you need sleep dentistry. They can determine which option may work well for your case.

Generally, here are some common procedures that often require sedation:

Most individuals can receive sedatives to manage reducing fears and allow them to undergo procedures with less stress. However, there are some instances and factors that sleep dentistry may not be recommended, including the following:

  • A person with no dental anxiety
  • Pregnant women
  • Patients that have allergies to sedatives
  • Sedation is generally safe for children but should take extra care when administering to avoid complications. It may not be suitable for older patients because of certain medical conditions.
  • A person with health conditions like chronic bronchitis, respiratory disease, and cardiac conditions.
  • Individuals who have a stuffy nose.
  • Patients that are currently taking other medications.
  • A person with glaucoma
  • Someone who drank alcoholic beverages before the dental treatment.
Please allow yourself some time to wear off the effects of sedatives on your body before driving. Approximately recovery period may take 24 hours. It would help if you had a trusted friend or family member drive you home after your appointment. Resting so your body can preserve energy and recover fully is also important. This is still applicable even if you seem fine following the medication, as there is still some influence on your function.

Dental sedation may cause various side effects. While these are normal reactions of the body, if one or more continue to persist after a few days, we highly suggest contacting your dentist immediately. You may experience either of the following:

  • Vomiting
  • Numbness of certain body parts
  • Headache
  • Feeling fatigued
  • Sweating
  • Lightheadedness
  • Confusion
  • Dry mouth
  • Sore throat
  • Slurring of speech.
  • Tenderness at the injection site

Private health insurance may cover sedation costs if determined as medically necessary or depending on your current plan policy. However, they mostly pay only a portion of the treatment cost, which means you need to pay out-of-pocket for the rest.

Suppose you have an extras policy that includes coverage for sleep dentistry; you may be able to use some of them when paying. There is a great significance in policies between different private health funds. Some may have a waiting period and limits on how much you can claim per year. So, it’s essential to confirm your level of coverage and eligibility with your insurance provider before the procedure.
