The Sedation Office offers sedation options that can help even the most nervous patients relax and attain the dental care they want and need.
Healthy teeth and gums have a strong correlation to better physical health. However, thousands of people skip routine dental care, ignore pain and delay acute care due to dental anxiety or fear. Dental phobia is a common problem, but it can lead to serious dental disease and may increase the risk of general health problems, too.
Sedation dentistry is the field of dentistry that is devoted to alleviating the fear and anxiety that can accompany a visit to the dentist. Also frequently called sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry uses various medications to achieve different levels of relaxation, depending on each individual's needs. Some medications are used only during the appointment while others can be administered before the appointment to alleviate the fear and worry that can develop in anticipation of upcoming treatment.
Sedation dentistry is recommended for patients who:
- Have a strong gag reflex
- Have sensitive teeth or a low pain threshold
- Have dental anxiety
- Prefer to have multiple treatments completed in a single appointment
- Dislike the noises, smells and sensations associated with dental treatment
The right sedation treatment enables patients to get essential treatments or elective treatment with little to no discomfort, little to no stress and with less time in the dental chair.
Inhaled sedation or nitrous oxide is a fast, popular option that is excellent for patient with mild anxiety or low pain thresholds.
Anxiolysis is a form of more moderate sedation that uses an oral sedative to achieve greater relaxation. Sedatives can also be combined for deeper sedation and greater relaxation during long procedures.
IV sedation is among the deepest levels of sedation and is both fast and extremely effective whereby the patient is in deep sleep throughout.
The sedation dentists at The Sedation Office have extensive training and experience in the field of sedation dentistry and strive to help their patients receive the dental care they need in complete comfort and without any anxiety. Visit http://www.dentist4sedation.com for more information.
