At Dental Solutions, we know that going to the dentist can be a traumatic experience for some patients.
Patients who suffer from severe dental anxiety or phobia to the dentist’s office can have such a hard time that they prefer not to have dental treatment. In these cases, sedation dentistry can be the perfect solution for the patients to relax during the consultation and to receive the dental care they need. Let’s know more about sedation dentistry techniques.
Dental anxiety affects many patients, adults, and children. Using nitrous oxide and other sedation dentistry techniques you can be comfortable during your treatment.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is an ideal option for patients who suffer from dental anxiety, phobia, or panic attacks when going to the dentist. By using different types of medication, the dentist can make the patient feel more relaxed during dental treatments and oral surgery.
It is important not to confuse dentistry sedation with general anesthesia, since at the first the patient will be fully conscious during the dental work, but will feel relaxed and calm.
This procedure can be used in almost all dental treatments, and the effect of sedatives wears off after a few hours. General anesthesia is one of the techniques used in sedation dentistry, it makes the patient completely unconscious during the procedure, and is used only in cases of oral surgeries or cases where the patient must be unconscious.
