Find out if sedation dentistry is for you.

Most people hate going to the dentist for one reason or another, but regular dental visits will help your dentist maintain your overall oral health, aside from treating problems before they arise and providing solutions to both major and minor dental issues. A lot of patients however, would rather endure the pain of a toothache than a visit to the dentist, which isn’t advisable or ideal in the long run. Few patients also know that options such as sedation dentistry exist, which can greatly help make visits to the dentist easier and sitting through an appointment stress-free. 

Sedation dentistry makes use of sedatives that help patients relax during the course of a dental procedure. It is performed by licensed practitioners. At Dentique Dental Care, we use a sedative in the form of a tiny pill that patients take an hour before treatment. Who are ideal candidates for sedation dentistry? Check out the list below to find out if it’s right for you.
