Millions of Americans avoid going to the dentist each year. This isn’t only due to expensive and unaffordable dental care, but dental anxiety and fear.
In fact, it’s dental fear that compels 75 million people in the United States to avoid the dentist.
This fear is very common. If you suffer from this, it’s probable because you may have suffered a traumatic dental experience as a child or an adult.
Regardless, many people have stopped going to the dentist even when plagued with tooth decay and pain. There’s an answer to this seemingly insurmountable problem: sedation dentistry.
Undergo Any Dental Procedure Free Of Fear with Sedation Dentistry
With the help of medication, sedation dentistry enables patients to relax during any dental procedure. Sometimes, sedation dentistry is referred as ‘sleep dentistry’, although this is incorrect as patients are usually awake during their procedure (excepting general anesthesia).
Levels of sedation are:
This is when you’re completely awake, but in a relaxed state of mind.
Known formerly as ‘conscious sedation’, this is where you may not remember much of the dental procedure.
This is when your mind will be on the edge of consciousness but you can still be awakened during the procedure.
This is when you’re completely unconscious. It takes some time to awaken after being administered general anesthesia.
