Relaxation Dentistry Has Many Benefits [BLOG]

Dr. Jeffrey Tocci - Wellesley, MA Dentist | Tocci Dental Associates

February is a great time to fall in love with your smile. But when you feel anxiety about showing up for your dental appointments, that won’t be so easy to do.

At our Wellesley, MA dentist’s office, we have found that relaxation dentistry is one great way to help our patients feel more at ease. However, putting your fears to rest is only one of the benefits.  

Keep reading to hear more of them, and then call us at 781-304-8172 to request your next relaxing dental appointment. Our leader, Dr. Tocci, has received advanced training in dental sedation and routinely attends training courses to stay updated on the latest techniques. So, you can rest assured that you will be in good hands here.

The Time Passes Quickly

Relaxation can make the time it takes to work on your teeth and gums pass a lot more quickly. Also, it can make it so you have very little memory of your procedure. What’s not to love about that?

More Care At Once

Let’s face it, there is a limit to how much any patient can handle before it’s been too much dental care for one day. However, with the help of relaxation dentistry, you can get all the care you need, even multiple procedures, all at once. You will save time and money in the long run.

No More Gagging

We use the most modern and minimally invasive dental tools available. Still, it can be a weird sensation to have any tools in your mouth let alone a dentist’s hands poking around. This scenario can induce gagging reflex that disrupts your treatment. But with relaxation dentistry, your gagging will be diminished.

Sitting Still Will Be Easier

Everyone gets a little fidgety in the dentist’s chair. But mild levels of relaxation dentistry can help patients sit still long enough to get the care they need. Also, patients with disabilities or special needs can benefit from this kind of assistance.

Less Sensitivity

We approach every patient differently because we know that every mouth is unique. If you have teeth or gums that are so sensitive you can’t handle even the simplest of dental treatments, relaxation dentistry can help immensely.

Two Great Options At Tocci Dental

Inhaled sedation is also known as laughing gas and can be administered safely by Dr. Tocci through a mask. This is a mild sedative that works well for patients of any age and the effects wear off within minutes of your treatment’s end. It won’t be any problem for you to drive home afterward.

Oral sedation comes through a pill that will be prescribed ahead of time and you take before your procedure. This deeper level of relaxation dentistry will get you to a sleep-like state, while leaving you conscious. When it is over, you won’t remember much about your visit and you won’t be able to drive yourself anywhere anytime soon.
