Maybe you live in dread of going to the dentist. Maybe you need a root canal, but don’t want to experience the procedure. Maybe you have several complex procedures to schedule, and can’t seem to find the time.

What if there was a solution that allowed you to take charge of your dental health, while ensuring maximum comfort and efficiency during procedures? That’s where sedation dentistry comes in. If you’re considering this option, here are three times when sedation dentistry may be the right choice.

1. You often find it hard to relax at the dentist.

We know that going to the dentist can be a stressful experience. In fact, many people have anxiety about visiting the dentist. When you don’t address dental care, however, conditions get worse over time.

You don’t have to be afraid anymore. Sedation dentistry offers a perfect way to relieve dental anxiety. At Boger Dental, we offer three state-of-the-art sedation options depending on the type of dental procedure. We’ll find the right option for your physical and emotional well-being.

2. You’ve been putting off dental visits for years.

If you often find yourself putting off a dental visit, you’re not alone. But being proactive now will prevent deterioration and pain from worsening. Plus, you’ll save money instead of spending more down the road.

Ready to take charge of your dental health, but still anxious about your visit? Sedation may be the right option to get past your fear and accomplish your dental goals. Plus, Boger Dental staff is trained to cater to people with dental anxiety, and we will go the extra mile to make your visit as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. We offer sound-blocking headphones, TV shows to zone out to, and other amenities for your comfort. And if your busy schedule makes it hard to squeeze in a visit, try scheduling a visit during one of our early morning or evening time slots.

3. You’d like to take care of a complex procedure in a single visit.

Do you need to schedule dental implants, tooth surgery, TMD & TMJ procedures, or another complex operation? While these procedures typically take two to three visits, they can often be accomplished in a single day with sedation dentistry. That means fewer trips back for follow-up appointments, and speedier healing. By condensing your dental visits with sedation, you’ll have more time to do what you love (which we know doesn’t include going to the dentist).

So, is sedation dentistry for you?

We all know that visiting the dentist is important. But just because it is something we should do doesn’t make it easy or enjoyable. If you find it hard to relax at the dentist, have been putting off your dental visit, or want to minimize time spent on a complex procedure, it may be time to consider sedation dentistry. You’ll be able to sit back and relax as your dental needs are cared for. Knowing you have options can make all the difference!
