A relaxing trip to the dentist

Posted by on Mar 6, 2013 in Blogs | 0 comments

Imagine not being afraid to go to the dentist. Imagine being able to accomplish all your dental care in as little as one appointment. This is what Sedation Dentistry can do for you. Oral Sedation Dentistry protocols have been used safely for over 30 years with millions of dental procedures. Years of neglect can be reversed in a few hours. You will be able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. If you’ve been putting off years of dental work, Sedation Dentistry can change your life.

After a consultation to discuss the level of sedation that is needed as well as an in-depth review of the patient’s medical history, your dentist will recommend the right level of sedation.   Every patient is different and requires different levels of sedation.

Another form of calming treatment that dentists use is called relaxation dentistry. This process uses nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) to numb the nerves. Nitrous oxide is administered by placing a tube onto the patient’s nose and having them inhale for a few minutes prior to the dentist starting. The patient has the option to keep the nitrous oxide mask on through the entire procedure, or having it removed once numbed enough. Most patients request to keep their masks on, as nitrous oxide can wear off.

Dentists treat millions of patients with sedatives and relaxation dentistry every year. Those who fear going to the dentist are able to rest at ease knowing that every visit will be painless and soothing. Another great thing about these forms of dentistry is that they’re safe and effective for people in all age groups.
