Sedation Dentistry May Be a Good Solution for Your Needs

Are you like millions of other people who fear going to the dentist? If so, you may put off general dentistry appointments for cleanings and checkups, and you are probably also less likely to make an appointment until you are sure you absolutely require treatment – right away. Dental anxiety plagues a huge number of adults, and it can cause them to skip treatments that might have addressed more painful, and costly, issues early on. Therefore, we offer all our patients several options for sedation dentistry.

As a family owned business, offering comprehensive dental care to families and patients in the area since 1987, the University Dental Group in Orlando, FL strives to deliver premium general, preventative cosmetic and restorative dentistry services, in addition to specialist referrals. Therefore, we also gladly discuss sedation dentistry with any patient struggling to overcome dental anxiety.

The Options Available

Even though our dental office has invested in the very latest technologies that promise fast and nearly painless treatments, many patients still express anxiety over issues such as injections of anesthetics and the use of standard equipment such as drills or even non-machine dental tools. This is why sedation dentistry is so beneficial.

In our dentist office, patients can discuss their needs, and depending upon their preferences, we can offer:

Oral sedation

This is simply an oral medication that you will take before your visit. It puts you in a remarkably relaxed condition that allows you to feel at ease as you enter the office, throughout the treatment (regardless of length or complexity), and as you recover. Many patients say that oral sedation allows their mind to wander even as they receive treatment, and that they leave in a very calm and relaxed state.

Nitrous oxide

This is what most patients know as laughing gas, and it is administered once you are seated in the dentist’s chair. You can speak, communicate and know your surroundings, but you are also totally relaxed and feel no sense of anxiety or fear throughout your appointment. Recovery is almost immediate and you may even begin to associate a visit to the dentist as a relaxing experience rather than something to fear.

If you regularly experience a level of dental anxiety that allows you to keep putting off general dentistry treatments, restorative dentistry solutions or family dentist visits, then sedation dentistry is a very workable solution. Not only will it get you into our office for the important dental care you need, but it can allow you to get several issues dealt with in one sitting and may even begin to change how you feel about a visit to the dentist. It also ensures that any issues that could cause problems are addressed early on, halting their progress and reducing any risk of dental pain or disease.
