Who Can Benefit from Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Fear and Anxiety
According to American Dental Association surveys, more than 10% of Americans are so nervous and anxious about being in the dental chair that they totally avoid the dentist! Another 20% find treatment so uncomfortable or unbearable that they cannot follow through with treatment. In fact, almost half of all people with dental insurance still avoid dental care because of their fears and anxiety. Modern, safe sedation techniques allow the fearful patient to have dental procedures without the anxiety associated with dentistry.
Low Pain Threshold
Many people perceive pain differently than others, or at a much smaller stimulus. Sometimes a dentist may have difficulty in getting the patient’s tooth “numb” enough to perform painless treatment. There are many different reasons for inadequate numbness with local anesthesia, but with conscious sedation dentistry and techniques, these patients will be virtually pain free during the treatment.
Active Gag Reflexes
Some patients will gag before the smallest X-ray bitewing is even placed in their mouth or simple impression taken. Using sedation services even for the simplest procedures can eliminate the problems caused by gagging.
For physically and mentally challenged patients, and for individuals emotionally uncomfortable in the traditional dental office setting, conscious sedation services can provide both a way to accomplish complete dental care as well as a more pleasant experience.
If you associate the dentist with pain, anxiety, and stress, sedation dentistry may be the answer you have been seeking. Contact our Chandler dentist office for more information or to schedule an appointment today.
