About Sedation Dentistry
About three-quarters of the general public in the States suffer from anxiety about dental treatments. What they fear most about the treatment is a painful experience. However, regular dental checkups are necessary to keep your dental health in check and to ensure that you do not develop serious oral diseases on account of poor dental hygiene. Sedation dentistry has helped patients overcome their fear of going to the dentist. At Affordable Dentist Near Me Waco, we ensure that our patients receive quality care for all treatments and surgeries thanks to our proven sedation dentistry.
Less Pain Procedures In 4 Proven Ways
- Minimal Sedation: Nitrous oxide is the mildest sedation available and we use it for the less intrusive treatments that might be painful. It simply keeps the patient relaxed during the process, but awake and conscious.
- Conscious Sedation: Primarily deals with helping you block your pain during the treatment. Patients may tend to fall asleep but are generally awake during the process.
- IV Sedation: This is reserved for more serious cases, where the patient is anxious about the treatment being a painful experience. This medication is delivered intravenously and induces a deep relaxation in the patient. The patient falls asleep but can be awakened at a moment’s notice by the dentist or nurse.
- General Anesthesia: The patient is put to a deep sleep medically, and cannot be awakened until the effect wears off completely.
Your dental care professional will cross check your medical history and prescribe the right sedation procedure for your treatment. The dentist can also recommend that you take certain tests to ensure your physical condition can support the anesthesia used. This will help you fare better during your treatment with minimal complications.
