Sedation Dentistry & A Caring Dentist | Paradise, CA

Happy New Year! What a great time to take charge of your oral health! Here at our Paradise, CA dentist’s office, we have found that sedation dentistry does work really well when it comes to helping folks relax.

But you may be surprised to learn that sedation dentistry also has many other benefits.  These may be of interest to you as you plan for your next dental procedure or cosmetic makeover at Robert D. Moores, DDS.

Keep reading to hear all about it, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your next visit!

Where Does The Time Go?

It’s a fact that sedation can make the time required to work on your teeth and gums pass a lot more quickly. Also, sedation can make it so you have very little memory of your procedure. Doesn’t that sound nice?!

Less Time Consumed

There’s typically a limit to how much a patient can handle before it’s been simply too much dental care for one visit. That said, with the help of sedation, you can get all the care you need, even multiple procedures, all at once. This will save you time and money in the long run. Who doesn’t want that?!

Gagging Is Out

Everyone handles things in their own way. Some patients don’t like the thought of weird dental tools and someone else’s hands going into their mouths, and this can cause a subconscious gagging reaction that slows down or interrupts our plans for treatment.

One great thing about sedation is that your gag reflex will be relaxed along with the rest of your body, and we will be able to do what we do well: boost the health and appearance of your smile.

You Will Be Able To Sit Still

Got ants in your pants? Even mild levels of sedation can help patients sit still long enough to get the care they deserve. Sometimes folks with disabilities can really benefit from this kind of assistance. Be sure to let us know if you have any special needs to take into consideration.

Sensitivity Is Numbed

If you have teeth or gums that are so sensitive you can’t handle even the simplest of dental treatments, sedation can help with that too. In earlier eras of dentistry, you would have had to simply put up with it.

Oral Sedation Is The Way We Do It

Here’s how it breaks down: oral sedation comes through a pill that you swallow beforehand. This level of sedation dentistry will get you to a sleep-like state, while leaving you conscious. However, you won’t remember much about your visit when it is over. Just be sure to line up a ride home because you won’t be in any shape to get behind the wheel! T
