Reduce Your Stress with Minimal Sedation Dentistry
- Posted on: Jul 15 2014
If you experience stress or even fear when scheduling your dental appointments, rest assured that you are not alone. Many Americans feel uneasy about going to the doctor or dentist office for a number of reasons. Children may often be fearful, but for adults that are overly anxious when visiting the dentist, Wylie Dental Center is happy to offer minimal sedation to ease your worries.
There are many reasons that patients find themselves fearful of the dental chair. Some adults have simply never visited the dentist before, or for some they have had what they perceive to be a negative experience in the past that has made them reluctant to return. No matter what the reason behind your stress, the professionals at Wylie Dental are caring and understanding of your condition and happy to make your visit as stress-free as possible.
If discussing your concerns and minimizing your necessary treatments does not ease your mind, perhaps you should consider our minimal sedation services during your next dental procedure.
Minimal sedation is a simple addition to your normal dental treatment and can be used for patients having elaborate procedures such as implants or fillings performed as well as patients who need to relax during routine cleanings and examinations. Minimal sedation is an oral medication that you take which will help you relax and offers a slight amnesic affect – meaning you probably won’t remember any of the smells, sounds and feelings from being in the dental chair. However, because of this you will likely need a friend to drive you home from treatment.
Sedation dentistry is not the same as anesthesia. If your treatment requires numbing or other anesthesia services, those can be provided in addition to an oral sedation medication.
Don’t let stress or fear prevent you from seeking much-needed dental cleanings or procedures. Contact Wylie Dental Care to learn more today.
