OTTAWA, ON, April 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When you avoid general dentistry services such as biannual cleanings and examinations, you not only run the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss, you may be putting yourself at an increased risk for heart disease and other medical complications.
You know how important it is to see your dentist. What you may not know is that many dentists now offer solutions for dental phobia and can help you feel completely relaxed and comfortable no matter what dental services you require.
Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to treat dental phobia. Through gentle sedation, your dentist can ease anxiety and prepare you for the dental services you deserve. But sedation is not exclusively for those who fear the dentist. It can also be beneficial for people who:
- Have difficulties getting numb
- Dislike the sights, smells, or sounds of dental offices
- Dislike needles
- Have an overactive gag reflex
- Are anxious with any medical treatment
Sedation dentistry is generally accomplished with the use of oral medications that produce feelings of relaxation without causing a loss of consciousness. In this way, you are still able to respond to your dentist's instructions, but will be entirely at ease during your procedure.
While considered safe, sedation may not be right for everyone. However, advances in dental technology have made many common procedures both quick and pain-free. During your initial consultation with your dentist, ask about your sedation options along with other methods he can use to help you overcome your fear and ensure the most relaxing dentistry experience possible.
