Are you afraid to go to the dentist? If you are, and you are like many Americans, you may find that sedation dentistry is something that will make you feel much more at ease when going to the dentist.
Going to the dentist for so many people is a very nerve-wracking experience. The fear of the unknown, and the fear of intense pain is simply too much for us to handle, and that causes a great deal of anxiety. Luckily though, there exists sedation dentistry and for so many people it is a life-saver.
At My Scottsdale Dentist we offer sedation dentistry to our patients as a way to make sure they are as comfortable as possible during their office visits. Dr. Poluos will meet with you before your appoint to determine the best course of action for your appointment.
Â What Is Sedation Dentistry & How Will It Benefit Me?
There are several forms of sedative that we can give you to make sure your dental appointment is a comfortable one. Sedatives come in pill form, elixir, IV injection and inhaled solutions. Depending on your specific needs certain pills may be given with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to calm you down, and reducing your memory of the procedure.
What About Intravenous Sedation?
Certain types of procedures will require more sedation than others will. For these tough cases our patients have I.V. or intravenous sedation methods available to them so that those implants or other cosmetic surgery is something that you can look forward to, and not fear.
The best way to determine which method or methods may work best for you is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Poluos to get your customized sedation plan so that you can get your dental work done, without all of the worry. Having dental work done does not have to be a frightening experience for anyone.
