Can Sedation Dentistry Help with RLS?
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a chronic and uncomfortable condition that cannot be cured. The most common symptom, a nearly irresistible urge to move the legs, is often heightened when sitting or lying down. This can make even the most routine of dental visits seem like torture and may prompt some people with RLS to entirely avoid routine cleanings and examinations, treatment for oral health issues, or cosmetic services for the perfection of their smiles.
If you suffer from RLS, sedation dentistry may offer a reliable way to calm the legs and allow for optimal comfort during your dental visit. The safe and effective options offered by our Cincinnati sedation dentists may help instill calm and serve as a viable solution for patients with RLS. This is something that is best determined in person through a one-on-one consultation where we can review your medical history, the severity of your condition, and other information that will assist us in helping you make the decision best for your needs.
In addition to patients with RLS, oral conscious sedation offers comfort to patients struggling with:
- Sensitive teeth
- An over-active gag reflex
- High tolerance to numbing medications
- A dislike of the sights, sounds, or smells of a dental office
- General discomfort and anxiety
