It’s natural if you feel a bit nervous before a dental appointment. However, it’s not normal if the anxiety is so deep it results in missed appointments and panic attacks. Your dental anxiety may have originated from previous bad experiences or heightened because you fear the sound of drills and smells in dental offices. Whatever the reason, sedation dentistry from Derek H. Tang, DDS & Todd S. Adams DDS won’t let dental fear stop you from achieving your dental wellness goals.
You only visit a dentist when you have a dental emergency. And even then, you must have someone accompany you to ensure you don’t run. Not even a dental emergency will sometimes convince you to see a dentist. You “accidentally” miss your appointment because you are terrified of the dentist.
These are signs of dental fear, but they can magically disappear with the help of medication. While Drs. Todd Adams and Derek Tang use laughing gas to combat mild dental anxiety, they also use oral medication to help patients overcome mild to moderate dental fear.
Oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescription pill about an hour before your appointment. Since this sedation makes you groggy, you must have someone accompany you to and from our dental practice. Depending on the severity of your dental anxiety, your dentist can vary the dosage to suit your needs.
Through the magic of medication, you will feel calm during treatment, and you will have vague memories of your treatment. This way, you can go through lengthy procedures like dental implantology without realizing the passage of time.
Dental fear and anxiety shouldn’t prevent you from getting the dental care you deserve. Talk to your dentist about sedation dentistry. Here are the benefits of painless dentistry:
