Sedation Dentistry Scottsdale Puts Anxieties And Phobias To Rest, Literally
If you’re one of the thousands of people in the Scottsdale area who are putting off having needed dental work done because of anxiety, or an outright phobia of going to the dentist, sedation dentistry Scottsdale is for you.
Sedation dentistry Scottsdale uses sedation drugs to calm and relax a patient, or to sedate a patient to the point he or she slips into semi consciousness or outright unconsciousness. The goal of sedation dentistry is to provide patients with an anxiety free experience to counter the tendency of fearful patients to put off necessary dental treatment.
There are basically three forms of sedation used in sedation dentistry Scottsdale. The first form is inhalation sedation, in which nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is inhaled. While under the influence of nitrous oxide it’s virtually impossible to be anxious about anything. The next form of sedation is oral sedation, which requires a patient to swallow anti-anxiety pills or a liquid sedative. The third method of sedation is having drugs administered directly into the bloodstream via a vein, a procedure known as intravenous or IV.
The choice of which form of sedation is used depends on the level of anxiety a patient suffers from, and thus the level of sedation necessary. Of course the choice of sedative and method of administering it are also the one the dentist and anesthesiologist deem to be the best and safest option for the specific patient.
No matter which method of sedation is used, or what the level of sedation induced is, sedation dentistry Scottsdale will alleviate the anxiousness of Scottsdale patients, allowing them to undergo the treatment necessary to improve their oral health and hygiene, as well as brighten their smiles.
