Are you or a family member apprehensive about going to the dentist? Has a past experience with pain or discomfort caused you to start panicking when you think about having your teeth worked on? Have you neglected going to the dentist and fear the amount of work that might need to be completed?
If your past or current situation is causing a lot of anxiety, there are options available to alleviate your fear and reduce (or completely eliminate) your pain with the necessary care. Oral sedation (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless North Dallas dental patients calmly undergo dental treatment. It is not an experimental procedure but has been used safely in various forms since the 1800s.
To discuss sleep dentistry, call Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry at 972-248-8525 to schedule a no-pressure consultation. Doctor Kessner will explain your sedation options and answer any questions. If you select sedation, Doctor Kessner will refer you to a specialist if necessary (depending on the type of sedation used).
It is important to understand the difference between topical analgesics and sedation which are used both alone and simultaneously. Analgesics help numb the gums and nerves connected with your teeth so you don’t feel the pain. Sedation medications affect the nervous system and deliver a feeling of peace and relaxation. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are relaxed but still awake, or choose general anesthesia which renders you completely unconscious. Together, these two solutions dramatically improve the treatment experience for patients suffering from dental anxiety, a very common condition.
Regardless of the type and level of sedation you decide to use, Doctor Kessner will proceed with patience and understanding. Oral sedation assists with making your dental visit relaxed so you can treat all of your dental dilemmas and restore your health. Taking care of cavities, infections, and other pressing problems brings peace of mind and reduces the risk of further damage including tooth loss.
