Minimal Sedation Dentistry Eases Dental Fears
There are many reasons 50% of the population put dental care at the bottom of the healthcare list: Some people are downright fearful, others have suffered bad experiences in the past and now suffer from dental anxiety. Then there are those who have a very strong gag reflex, and going to the dentist is a real ordeal. Or maybe extensive care is needed and there simply aren't enough hours in the day to accomplish it.
It's time to rest easy. Minimal Sedation Dentistry is here.
After an initial consultation, your dentist will give you a dental anesthesia to take, it's called Triazolam, before your visit. You must bring a friend along to get you home after your appointment. At your appointment, you'll be drowsy, but thoroughly responsive (conscious sedation). The minimal sedation dentistry team will monitor your every move throughout. The big plus: Most patients don't feel anything, and all your dentistry needs can be accomplished at one time, sometimes in as little as two to six hours, from straightforward care to the most complicated.
For anxious patients, this new treatment is a kind of miracle, a boon to dental health. For the medically compromised, it works wonders, too. Dentistry keeps getting better and better, you'll be convinced.
Your minimal sedation dentist understands your dental fear, where it comes from, and what health problems can arise as a result. Now you're lucky to have a means to overcome it, and dentists are so pleased to be able to offer minimal dental sedation to their patients.
Visit Our Office Regularly!
Take good care of your smile. Remember to visit the dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
Mouthwash Is Important, Too!
Brushing and flossing may not be enough. The ADA now recommends using an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce plaque and prevent gingivitis.
Don't Forget to Floss!
Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Decay-causing bacteria can hide between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles from between teeth and under the gum line.
