Dr. Lesser's exclusive Comfort-CareTM System
Getting nervous when having a procedure at a doctor or hospital is completely normal. This is our body's natural protective reaction. This happens to all of us.
But significant number of Americans do not visit the dentist for regular checkups, and get gum disease, toothaches and loss of their teeth--- because they are too fearful or suffer from dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry offers an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free, dental experience to those who are afraid of the dentist.
How would you like to snooze through your visit? Sedation dentistry is often mistakenly thought to induce deep anasthesia, like in an operation. In fact, most sedatives allow the patient to stay awake during the procedure, but in a very relaxed state; and many say they don't even remember the treatment. Patient relaxation aids that are used, like nitrous oxide (laughing gas, twiilight sleep), oral conscious sedation and IV sedation work excellently well to calm anxiety throughout the dental visit.
Sedation dentistry is popular because most sedatives can be taken by mouth, meaning no injections, no anxiety and no pain. Some sedatives work so effectively that even the smells and details of the procedure cannot be recalled afterwards. Safety and compliance are two important aspects of treatments, so sedation dentistry offers both the individual and the dentist the best alternative.
Whatever the form of sedative, it is essential to be accompanied by a caregiver. Sometimes, sedatives are provided the night before the dental visit, which means that driving to or from the appointment is not advisable.
Here are some advantages associated with sedation dentistry:
