SCARED?

ASK YOUR DENTIST TO SEDATE YOU
4
YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID!
5
If you are looking into having a major dental
procedure performed but are worried your
anxieties may get the best of you
6
you should definitely bring up the option of
sedation with your dentist.
7
Sedated dentistry offers a variety of benefits
for both the patient and the dentist.
8
Sedated dentistry offers a variety of benefits
for both the patient and the dentist. These
include
9
1
  • An elevated level of tranquil relaxation and
    comfort in the patient.

10
This extends to the sensation of pain that would
likely flare up during an intricate procedure
like a root canal.
11
This can also be a great option for patients
coping with sensitive teeth.
12
2
  • A sharp decrease in the chance of involuntary
    movements that may increase the time that your
    dentist spends working on your teeth and gums.

13
3
  • Suppression of the gag reflex.

14
Some procedures require a dental technician to
reach far back into the mouth and cause the gag
reflex to flare up, sending caustic acid to fly
out of the mouth along with the patient's stomach
contents.
15
4
  • Impaired memory of the event.

16
Patients with a phobia of the dentist, drills, or
other common elements of the dental profession
may appreciate having little to no recollection
of the procedures.
17
5
  • Fewer visits for an intensive procedure.

18
A relaxed patient gives the dentist more time to
work on that patient's mouth over the span of the
appointment.
19
The more work that a dentist does on a patient's
mouth, the fewer additional appointments will be
required of that patient.
20
Patients curious about the sorts of approaches
involved in sedative dentistry should know that
there are several techniques
21
Ingested treatments commonly Halcion, a pill
related to the drug Valium.
Suppositories.
Gas commonly nitrous oxide, also known as
"laughing gas."
Injection treatments.
22
Injection treatments afford the dentist a greater
level of control over dosage and can go to work
far more quickly than a treatment like Halcion.
23
In addition to their approach, dentists can
control how deep the sedation takes hold.
24
This can vary from a mild state of relaxation and
full consciousness, to a slightly deeper level
that tends to result in slurred speech and spotty
awareness
25
to a deep level of sedation that brings the
patient to the border of unconsciousness to a
general anesthetic that leaves the patient
temporarily unconscious.
26
The skill involved in administering deep levels
of sedation means that most dentists properly
trained in it are specialized in surgery or
dental anesthesiology.
27
All sedative dentistry involves an anesthetic,
typically a localized drug administered around
wherever the procedure will focus.
28
Other safeguards and qualifiers for sedated
dentistry include
  • The dentist should be familiar with your medical
    history in order to see if there could be any
    complications with certain sedatives.

29
  • Ask what level of dosage you will receive and if
    that dosage falls within FDA regulations.
  • Look into your dentist's training and track
    record with sedative dentistry.

30
  • You should receive a form that covers the risks
    of the procedure go over it with your dentist
    and feel free to ask questions.
  • Your dentist should have oxygen, countermeasures
    to the sedative and a way to regularly monitor
    your vitals during the procedure.

31

it's time to call Shumway Dental Care.
