Sedation Dentistry: Taking the Fear Out of Your Dental Visits
Posted by writer
Fear of the dentist is a common factor in patients of all ages throughout America. Whether you simply feel uncomfortable among the unfamiliar sights and sounds or you had a negative experience with another doctor, we understand and are here to help. At Thaddeus S. Michalski, DMD in Rocky Hill, CT, Dr. Michalski and his team do everything possible to make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed every time you visit our office. One of the services we offer to achieve this is sedation dentistry.
How Can Sedation Dentistry Help You?
For many patients, the anxiety they associate with dental procedures is enough to keep them from making an appointment at all. For others, there are different reasons that dental visits evoke unpleasant feelings. Whatever it is about dental treatment that causes you discomfort or anxious feelings, Dr. Michalski can help with oral conscious sedation. We will provide you with a prescription for a special medicine before your visit, and you’ll take it before your procedure. You’ll need someone you trust to drive you to and from your visit, but the effects should wear off completely within a few hours.
Oral conscious sedation can help patients with the following common problems:
- An excessively sensitive gag reflex
- A fear of needles, drills, or other dental equipment
- The need to complete multiple procedures in one visit
- A problem with becoming numb with local anesthesia
- Difficulty lying still for an extended length of time
- Physical problems that make it uncomfortable to lie down for very long
