DENTAL PROCEDURES USING SEDATION DENTISTRY
V-KARE Family Dentistry & Cosmetics Clinic, Champlin MN now offers either “conscious” relaxation at the dentist office which is a pain free and virtually anxiety-free approach to dental care. We are aware that many people delay dental care, and sometimes even emergencies, because of a phobia or anxiety of dental procedures. Sedation Dentistry is a specialized service for people who dread going to the dentist, have dental anxiety, fear of needles, very sensitive teeth, or have had negative experiences in the past with dental procedures. Sedation Dentistry allows you to have your procedure performed while you are in a relaxed and comfortable state.
Sleep through your next dental procedure and enjoy virtually pain free Dentistry.
A recent article in the Journal of the American Dental Association stated that over 23 million people delay dental care due to fear or anxiety. They could not find a dentist that could provide them with the most effective means for Sedation for dental services.
Sedation Dentistry is a dental solution designed for patients who dread going to the dentist. Many people feel afraid or uncomfortable when they are placed in vulnerable position, like the dental chair, and may experience dental anxiety as a result. Sedation Dentistry is an option for patients who fear dental procedures, needles, difficulty with their gag reflex, very sensitive teeth, or have difficulty becoming numb from oral injections.
Sedation Dentistry offers pain-free and anxiety-free dental procedures as patients are in a deeply relaxed state, though fully responsive. Sedation Dentistry also provides an opportunity to perform multiple or lengthy dental procedures in one session, minimizing the number of visits a patient has to make and ultimately reducing the build up of anxiety prior to each dental visit.
Common types of sedation that V-KARE Family Dentistry & Cosmetics Clinic, Champlin MN can perform include:
- Oral: Patient takes an oral medication about 30 minutes prior to seeing us at V-KARE – it helps to relieve anxiety.
- Inhalation or Nitrous Oxide: Inhalation sedation, or nitrous oxide-oxygen, is the most common sedation technique and is also known as laughing gas. Inhalation sedation is a preferable option as patients recover quickly and may leave the dental office alone and immediately resume their normal daily activities.
- Intravenous (Conscious Sedation) : Intravenous conscious sedation is a safe sedation technique and though it is not as readily available as other forms of sedation, it is more effective than administering the same drugs orally. At our clinic, this is conducted and monitored by Dr. Hussain while Dr. Zobaer works on your teeth. Patients will not remember any of the procedure and will feel as though they were asleep, even though they were wide-awake throughout. When intravenous sedation is used, patients will be monitored for blood pressure, breathing, and heart rate.
* Patients must have someone escort them when leaving the office after the procedure.
Anxious patients find that Sedation Dentistry offers a perfect solution for maintaining good dental health while being in a totally relaxed state. Sedation Dentistry ensures that patients experience no pain or anxiety during their dental procedures.
