Hello and welcome to another June edition of the New Albany Implants blog!
We are your trusted source for comprehensive dental solutions just across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky.
If you have been following these posts, or have ever spent any time in our office, you’ve probably heard us talk about some of the innovative approaches we have for helping patients work through dental anxiety. In fact, that condition is one of the most common reasons in which we would employ sedation dentistry techniques. But that is by no means the only reason we use sedation.
Today we wanted to talk about some other reasons why sedation makes a lot of sense for a lot of people, not just those who are harboring a fear of the dentist. Just so you know, we currently offer four increasingly intense levels of sedation to help you get the care you deserve: Nitrous oxide; Oral sedation; IV sedation; General anesthesia.
Whether you realize it or not, it is kind of rare to find a practice that is authorized to handle the complete spectrum of sedation dentistry services. So, after you are done with reading our reasons why sedation might be a good idea for you, be sure to get in-touch with our team and schedule your next dental appointment in Southern Indiana! We will provide an easier and more efficient way for you to keep your mouth clean and your smile looking great all through life.
It Can Save You From Making Multiple Appointments
If you are in need of a complex treatment or a combination of treatments, dental sedation often lets us get the job done in just one visit. This is especially true if you are a good candidate for IV sedation or general anesthesia. IV Sedation is what allows us to place all of your dental implants in the same day, without you having to experience any disconcerting sounds, smells, or discomfort. It can save you time, and indirectly money too.
It Creates A Time Warp
Sedation can warp your sense of time, making it seem to pass more quickly. Plus, you will often have no memory of your procedure when the dose wears off. This is nice for folks who are already uptight about spending time in a dental office.
No More Gagging
If you are one of the patients with an uncontrollable gag reflex, it can really get in the way of the work you are here to receive. With sedation, you’ll feel more at-ease, and we’ll be able to work without interruptions. Besides putting a stop to the gagging, it will help you sit still.
If you have sensitive teeth and gums, sedation can help eliminate your hypersensitivity and take the edge off, so to speak! If you have a low threshold for pain, dental sedation will be particularly attractive to you. For patients who are serious about truly pain-free dentistry, I.V. Sedation is the only method that can guarantee you won’t feel a thing when we have to poke and prod inside your mouth.
