Sedation (Sleep) Dentistry Offered By Ottawa Sedation Dentists
Sedation techniques have made dental care available to all those that need it. Despite having made oral health accessible to a large number of people, the unfortunate reality is that most still don’t know about this option. Although sedation in dentistry is not a new phenomenon, it has somehow managed to avoid mainstream awareness.
In the following few paragraphs, we will explore the different types of sedation and their benefits, however the first question that needs to be addressed is WHO can benefit?
The answer to that is fairly broad and all-encompassing. Generally speaking, sedation dentistry can benefit people that:
Are anxious or afraid to visit their dental office
Have had a traumatic experience with a dentist in the past
Have a very sensitive gag reflex
Are embarrassed about their smile
Have a strong aversion to needles
Have difficulty in experiencing the full effects of traditional anaesthesia
Require longer or more invasive procedures
Have difficulty with or have a limited opening of the jaw
