In most of the time, people are trying to avoid seeing the dentist because of dental anxiety or dental phobia. However, this conscious dentistry is a safe and effective way for these people to have the anxiety-free dental experience they have always dreamed of. With this sedation dentistry, our priority is to keep patients comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Patients are kept in a relaxed state before, after, and during the entire treatment. Once treatment is completed, you will have little or no memory of the experience. And now there no longer to avoid the dentist, come in for overdue dental work. This dental sedation is also recommended for procedures requiring a significant amount of time, multiple treatments done in one sitting, as well as for patients who have difficulty controlling their movements.
And now a question rose in your mind that how does these sedation dentistry works. First of all, schedule a consultation where you will discuss treatment and sedation options with your dentist. A variety of medicines can be used as sedatives, so the appropriate medication for you and your procedure will also be addressed during your initial consultation. You may be given a prescription for a light sedative to take the night before your procedure, to reduce any anxiety and ensure good nights’ sleep. In sometimes, a consultation between your dentist and you warranted, especially, if you are taking multiple or conflicting medications or have serious underlying health concerns.
After entering into the hospital for your procedure, you will be given a combination of sedative drugs mixed with nitrous oxide gas, which will put your body into a state of extreme relaxation and reduced perception. A local anesthetic will then be administered to eliminate pain. You will neither feel any pain when the dentist numbs your teeth, nor remember the actual numbing when the procedure is over. Due to sedative and amnesiac effects of this medication combination, you should not feel pain or have unpleasant memories of your procedure. However, experienced team members will monitor your vital signs while you are sedated, keeping you comfortable and relaxed through tout the entire process.
