Though no one really looks forward with anticipation to going to the dentist, serious fear and anxiety prevents millions of people from seeking even routine preventive care. Regular visits to the dentist for professional tooth cleaning, examinations and treatments help prevent conditions like gingivitis (gum disease), which if left untreated may lead to heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
The goal of sedation dentistry is to provide pain-free and anxiety-free dental care and treatment for the segment of the population in need of this service. Sedation dentistry implements drugs, such as tranquilizers, anti-anxiety medications and nitrous oxide to calm patients’ fears and provide a relaxed and pain-free experience.
Sedation dentistry allows the patient to remain conscious during the dental procedure, but totally relaxed, comfortable and without experiencing any pain. Sedation dentistry has become the most used technique to combat the fear and anxiety caused by a visit to the dentist thanks to the advanced training available that has made it possible for many dentists to provide this service.
