How anxiety free dentistry helps patients?
Also known as sedation dentistry or relaxation dentistry, anxiety free dentistry is the way dentists manage patients’ pain and anxiety during the dental appointments. It has become very popular in the recent years as it helps patients face the dentist chair without having a panic or anxiety attack. Dr. Shenas understands this fear that so many people suffer from and offers them the comfort and relaxation needed to undergo dental treatment with help of different options.
Dr. Shenas dental offers the follow sedation options:
- Oral sedation
- Inhalation sedation
- Intravenous (IV sedation)
It is prescribed to relieve anxiety a few hours just before a dental appointment. Not only it has a sedative effects but it also results in amnesic effects for most people. It is important to know that sedation dentistry does not induce sleep but keeps the patients calm during the treatment. Patients often remember little or nothing about their dental appointment.
Inhalation Sedation (Laughing Gas)
The patients can feel relaxed by ‘relative analgesia’ sometimes known as inhalation sedation. The patients are given to breathe in a mixture of oxide and oxygen (laughing gas) through a nosepiece, which is very comfortable and quickly leads to a pleasant and relaxed feeling. The patients might feel a little drowsy but go through the procedure most easily. The effects of this gas wear off after a few breaths of ordinary air.
This is one of the most frequently used sedation methods used in dentistry.
Intravenous or IV Sedation
In this type of sedation, medication is given through an injection to make patients feel as if they are asleep. It is administered by an anesthetist (We will arrange an in house anesthetist for you) and offers instant effects by helping the patient remain conscious. They feel relaxed enough to follow instructions from the dentist and get treated most easily as the medicine is quite effective and they do not remember much about what happened during the procedure.
