ANCHORAGE, AK, February 05, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- If you hear something that sounds like a dental drill, you probably get a little anxious. If you hear the phrase "dentist appointment" and you run for the hills, it's safe to say you have dental anxiety.
You can't avoid the dentist forever, if you do, there might be consequences, such as tooth decay, gum disease or abscessed tooth. If you want a peace of mind during your dental treatment, maybe sedation dentistry in Anchorage at Dr. Edwin Kim's dental practice will help you.
"For years, sedation dentistry has been a great help to patients dealing with anxiety and stress related to the dentist. Some patients just can't handle dealing with doctors and dentists. Sometimes it's like that. With medication, patients can relax and not think about treatment, while the dentist can focus solely on the procedure. At Whole Family Dental, our sedation dentistry techniques can help the most nervous patient make it through an appointment without breaking a sweat," says Dr. Kim, Anchorage, AK dentist.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry requires the use of medication. Most patients assume sedation dentistry means being put you to sleep during the treatment. However, there are sedation medications and techniques that keep the patient awake. The types of sedation techniques include inhaled minimal sedation, oral sedation, IV moderate sedation and deep sedation and general anesthesia.
At Whole Family Dental, Dr. Kim is IV sedation certified by the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. This sedative is administered through an IV, so your dentist can adjust the level, depending on your need for it.
