Anxiety and phobia are very common among people going through any dental treatment. This can happen due to the pain, feeling of helplessness or any negative past experiences. But there is good news for those who are scared of visiting their dentist.
For people who avoid their dentist, sedation dentistry can help to eliminate their phobia and anxiety!
Sedation dentistry is a part of dentistry which uses medicines to help patients relax and calm down during painful dental treatment procedures. It is therefore also referred as “sleep dentistry”.
Types of sedation
Inhaled minimal sedation – During this process, nitrous oxide also known laughing gas combined with oxygen is given through a mask to a patient. This helps to relax the muscles.
Oral sedation – Depending upon the dose used, oral sedation can vary from minimal to moderate. Minimal sedation is usually given through a pill to produce moderate sedation a larger dose is given.
IV moderate sedation – This type of sedation works quickly as it is administrated through a vein. Your dentist will continuously adjust the level in IV sedation.
Deep sedation -This type of sedation will make a patient almost unconscious during the procedure.
Regardless of the type of sedation you receive, it is important that a responsible person accompanies you, who will drive you home safely.
So, you don’t have to worry anymore before visiting your dentist. Your dentist will assess your case and give you appropriate sedation to minimize your pain and anxiety!
