Are you anxious about visiting the dentist for regular checkups? If so, you’re not alone. Many Americans do not visit the dentist because they suffer from dental anxiety. At Premier Dental Care in Herndon, our team offers sedation dentistry, an excellent way to provide safe, anxiety-free, dental experience for those patients who may be scared of dental procedures.
Did You Know That Sedation Dentistry Works to Calm Anxiety Throughout the Dental Visit
Sedation dentistry doesn’t necessarily induce sleep but rather allows you to stay awake during the procedure. Sleepiness is a side effect of some medications, but nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation only work 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 you 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.
