Relaxing sedation dentistry is for nervous patients who have difficulty staying calm during dental procedures, which is crucial during dental procedures. Having problems with anxiety can make it extremely difficult and may result in an injury if the patient moves too much. With sedation dentistry, you get the care you need without the anxiety that may accompany it at Maegan Elam, DDS & Associates in Bedford, Texas.
Suffering from anxiety and nervousness shouldn’t stop you or your loved one from receiving the dental care you need. Anxiety and fear can be caused by claustrophobic conditions or previous dental visits where the experience was not so pleasant. It’s essential that you visit a dentist you trust. Sedation dentistry can calm your nerves and put you at ease.
Oral conscious sedation allows you to relax as completely as possible without actually putting you to sleep. That enables the dentist to communicate with you if necessary and will let you be relaxed enough so that they can perform the work that needs to be done without fear of hurting you or causing you further distress.
When a patient is fully relaxed, it is much easier for the dentist to complete the task at hand. It allows them to do their work without fear of upsetting you or causing you pain. The sedation results will wear off quickly, and you will be able to talk to the dentist about how the procedure went or if they have any concerns about what they saw while they were working.
