Dental visits are a must to maintain good oral health. For some, it may be an ordinary appointment, but for others, going to the dentist is dreadful. Most of them are too anxious about the things that may occur while undergoing a certain procedure. Thankfully, sedation dentistry gives a solution to this problem.
Sedation dentistry is also referred to as “sleep dentistry.” It uses certain medications to help the patients relax during a dental procedure. At Arbor Dental, we provide Oral Conscious Sedation and Nitrous Oxide under our Sedation Dentistry services to make our patients’ dental experience comfortable.
Candidates for Sedation Dentistry
- People who had continuously postponed their dental appointments because of fear
- Patients with a severe gag reflex
- Patients who have to undergo a complicated series of dental work
- Those who experienced trauma because of past dental experiences
- People who suffer from complex dental problems
- Are afraid of shots and needles
- Patients with overly sensitive teeth
- Those who are unable to keep still in the dental chair
- Patients who have chronic jaw pain
Sedation dentistry is not for everyone. Patients have to tell the dentist about their dental history, medical records, and health condition beforehand. It is to evaluate whether they are a candidate for sedation dentistry or not.
Advantages of Sedation Dentistry
Painless and Safe procedure: Fear and dental anxiety are associated with pain. Worried patients are often afraid that they will suffer from discomfort. Sedation dentistry at Arbor Dental is administered by professionals to provide patients a comfortable and pain-free dental experience.
Patients overcome fear: One of the reasons why people fear dental procedures is their negative past dental appointments. The trauma they experienced remain, and that makes them skip or postpone their schedules. Well, not anymore! Sedation dentistry enables patients to have a positive dental experience!
Hassle-free treatment: Sedation dentistry makes it easier for the dentist to perform different procedures, especially to patients with conditions mentioned above. Aside from that, it allows the treatment process to go on smoothly and quickly as well.
Several sedation options: Arbor Dental provides patients with two sedation treatments. First is oral conscious sedation in the form of a pill. The medication is taken orally and given to a patient approximately one hour before the dental procedure. The second choice is the Nitrous oxide, or commonly referred to as ‘laughing gas.’ Patients inhale the gas through a mask. It is actually not pure nitrous oxide, but a combination of gasses with oxygen to help patients relax.
