Our sedation dentistry practice specializes in patients who see that they cannot tolerate dental appointments without sedative drugs. Many patients are afraid of the dentist and cannot take dental work without sedation or getting put to sleep if the pills and laughing gas haven’t worked for you. If you gag a lot, have severe tooth sensitivity, and trouble falling asleep, we invite you to come in for a free Sleep Dentistry consultation to see what we can do for you today.
Benefits of Leabank Sleep Dentistry
Is Sleep Dentistry Safe?
When people are scared of dental appointments, they experience higher levels of cortisol and adrenaline. These hormonal spikes cause elevated heart rate, blood pressure, and a general fight or flight response. These systemic challenges can increase the chances of a dental emergency, such as a heart attack, stroke, asthma attack, allergic reaction, and many other medical problems. Also, as in sedation dental care, a more comfortable patient is easier for the dentist to work on, and there is a decreased risk for someone to get cut or injured during a dental procedure. It is also easier for a dentist to do high-quality work with a calm, quiet, and cooperative patient.
