There are many individuals who are "Dental Phobic "scared of all that is dental; dental treatment(root canals, teeth removal), drills, needles etc. Many a times this fear stops them from consulting a dentist, even when they have a dental condition that needs attention
It is also really hard for the dentist to perform dental procedurs on anxious and or phobic patients, especially during complicated procedures which may involve precision. Often this leads to poor dentistry and frustration for both the patient and the dentist.
Sedation dentistry offers many methods to subside pain and anxiety.
Contrary to the belief, sedation is a relatively very safe procedure and has been in practice for a long time. We at MM Family and Sleep Dentistry advocate the use of only the safest methods in practice. None of the sedation methods we use have any ill-affects on patients health. They are used after careful diagnosis and are applied only when absolutely necessary.
Every sedation method has a different purpose.Milder forms of sedation are used to calm the patient in case of mild anxiety,wheras deep sedation and general anesthesia may be employed to ease out discomforting procedures and or in patients with special needs.
