About Sedation Dentistry
People fear going to the dentist, mostly because they are afraid of a painful treatment. Studies show that about three-quarters of the general public prefer sedation dentistry to have a less pain experience with the dentist. The best way to ensure that you maintain proper dental hygiene is to have regular checkups with your dental care professional. This can help you detect serious oral diseases early and treat them carefully. At Affordable Dentist Near Me, you can have a positive, less pain experience during your dental treatment with our proven sedation dentistry.
4 Levels Of Pain Management
- Minimal Sedation: This treatment is reserved for the mild cases. The patients are induced with relaxation using Nitrous Oxide to help deal with the pain.
- Conscious Sedation: This will help deal with painful treatments and is used for patients who are worried about it. It keeps the patient conscious but they may fall asleep sometimes.
- IV Sedation: This is reserved for those patients who are very anxious about undergoing treatments with the dentist and the anesthetic is delivered intravenously. The patient falls under a deep sleep, but in some cases can remain conscious, and can be awakened by the doctor or nurse immediately.
- General Anesthesia: This is delivered medically and the patient does not wake until the effect has completely worn off. The patient has no memory of the treatment.
The dental care professional will review your medical history and ascertain the safe amount of sedation for your treatment. Improper sedation can lead to serious health problems and must be avoided at all costs.
