Slide 1: Sedation Dentistry No More Painful Dental Visits The practice of putting a patient under sedation before carrying out dental treatment is known as sedation dentistry. Many people are nervous about going to the dentist, but for some it goes beyond mild nerves and brings on panic attacks and other symptoms of extreme anxiety. This makes sedation perfect for those people who are terrified of visiting the dentist, or for those who have certain special needs making regular dentistry difficult. Sufferers of Parkinson's have benefited from sedation during dental treatments. If you feel that you would benefit from dental sedation, for example if you have a genuine, extreme fear of dental professionals or treatments, make sure you raise the issue with your dentist at your next appointment. Advantages of Sedation Also known as sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry is a fairly straightforward process. While sleep dentistry involves putting a patient completely to sleep, sedation uses oral drugs (such as Vicodin or Nitrous Oxide) to help relax a patient. However, the term sedation is often used interchangeably to describe either process. It is considered to be safe, and the level of sedation administered is tailored to each individual patient. Sedation is highly effective at keeping patients completely oblivious to the work that is being carried out on their teeth, and blissfully unaware of the pain or discomfort that they associate with dental treatments. Points to Keep in Mind Naturally, sedation adds another expense to a normal dental procedure and is highly unlikely to be covered by your health insurance policy. It usually requires a hospital environment, with additional, qualified medical professionals, such as an anesthetist. In addition to the high expense, there are some associated health risks that you should be aware of. Using a general anesthetic for any medical procedure carries risks. Your dentist will make sure you know what these are in advance and answer any questions you have. If you are a smoker, or have certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, respiratory problems or obesity, sedation may put you at an even higher risk. Again, all concerns can be discussed with your dental professional.
Slide 2: Is Sedation Dentistry the Right Option for You? For the vast majority of people, sedation dental work is very safe and highly effective. If you have a phobia of the dentist or unrelated issues that make dental treatment under normal conditions difficult, it could be the answer. If you regularly ignore reminder letters from your dental clinic, postpone appointments for no good reason, or even turn a blind eye to pain or discomfort in your mouth that would benefit from professional attention, you really should consider sedation. It is a simple option that could make a huge difference in your life; not only will you be relieved of the stress of visiting your dentist, your teeth will receive all the attention they deserve and your smile will be restored to one of natural beauty.
