Have you been putting off dental work, or even just a simple checkup and cleaning? Perhaps you have severe dental anxiety, or an out-and-out phobia. You are certainly not the only one. However, there are ways for you to get the dental work you need and deserve for your overall health and smile confidence, without having to succumb to deep fears. Imagine feeling so relaxed, or even sleeping through an entire dental visit. Dr. Aziza Askari, your Farmington Hills dentist, explains how you can undergo dental cleanings and treatments while you dream about the bright, beautiful smile you’ll soon wake up with.
People that are uncomfortable about going to the dentist will often put off years of cleanings and necessary dental procedures. Unfortunately, once your teeth are infected and damaged, your dental health can be on a quick downward spiral. With various forms of sedation, you can finally get all of your dental work done at once, with a pleasant memory, or even no memory of the procedure. Whether you abhor the sounds and smells of a dental office, or you fear that dental procedures will cause pain, there are ways to put your mind at ease.
Types of Sedation in Dentistry
Nitrous oxide might be enough for some people that just need the edge taken off of their fears. Oral sedation allows many people to be comfortably sedated through an entire visit by consuming a small pill. This form of sedation feels so relaxing that the patients are generally unaware of the passing of time. Even though the patient is technically conscious, this form of sedation can sometimes have an amnesiac effect, which helps for future visits.
For others, a better option is IV Sedation. When you opt for IV sedation with a certified sedation dentist, you can sleep peacefully knowing that your dental work will be completed, and your vital signs will be constantly monitored by the highly trained team.
