SEDATION DENTISTRY - Oral Sedation
Does going to the dentist make you feel nervous? If so, you’re definitely not alone. Young children are often nervous before going in before dental procedures because they might not understand what’s going on, and most kids aren’t thrilled to go to the dentist in the first place. Even adults get nervous about major dental procedures having gone into the process knowing why they’re at the dentist and having all the information in the world regarding the process itself. It doesn’t hurt our feelings when people tell us that they don’t like going to the dentist – what bothers us more is that many people actually have a deep seated fear of the dentist but don’t take the steps to make the process easier on themselves.
Oral sedation might be a good fit for you if going to the dentist makes you nervous but you don’t wish to use gas sedation. Many patients find incredible relief in oral sedation – the point of it is not to reduce pain nor put you under, but rather just to relax you for the duration of the dental process and help you get in and out of the dentist’s chair with as little emotional upset as possible.
Don’t let your fear of nervousness of dental procedures keep you from slipping on your oral hygiene. An honest consultation with the dentists at Barrington Dental Care™ will provide you with several ways to be able to reduce your nervousness and help you through dental procedures with much more ease than you ever thought possible. Most oral sedation is covered by insurance, as well, so being able to rest easy in that dentist’s chair won’t cost you a dime. Be sure to talk with either Dr. Ron or Dr. Todd at Barrington Dental Care™ about oral sedation techniques today. If you get the chills just thinking about the dentist, then both you and your mouth will be glad that you decided to take steps to rectify the situation before you start experiencing dental problems.
