Dental anxiety is real and widespread. Patients who are afraid of going to the dentist frequently prefer not to go. As a result, they are more likely to acquire illnesses such as early-stage gum disease. Patients who are concerned about dental appointments require genuine anxiety treatment. That's where dental sedation comes in. Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedatives on dental patients to lessen anxiety about dental appointments and allow them to receive dental care. At Stone Dental Group-SE Chicago Dentistry, our skilled dentist may employ nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and/or intravenous sedation depending on the severity of the anxiety and the complexity of the procedure.
Your overall health, as well as any physical or mental disorders you may be dealing with at the moment, are critical for successfully undergoing various types of sedation, particularly in the dental office. Some of these disorders may necessitate a physician's approval: cardiac disease, hypertension, diabetes, and respiratory diseases should all be treated before undergoing a specific type of sedation. Before beginning, your dentist will do a complete medical history and physical examination, and if necessary, will recommend a product to get home care on the correct track. They may also require you to obtain medical clearance from your doctor.
We understand that going to the dentist is not something that many people look forward to. While some patients have moderate types of dental anxiety, others can become overwhelmed by their dread of the dentist, causing them to miss appointments and jeopardize their oral health. Oral sedation dentistry can assist these patients to overcome their nervousness both before and during their session.
There are various types of sedation used in dentistry, and you do not have to be completely anesthetized to be pain-free during the process. For non-painful operations, you can be sedated to the point where you entirely rest during the entire dental procedure while being conscious.
There are fewer disturbances while the patient is sedated. Because the patient will not be moving, our dentist will be able to do the work quickly. This will also result in quicker and more efficient solutions.
