Corpus Christi Sedation Dentist: Services Designed For Patients with Anxiety
With Sedation Dentistry, you can say goodbye to your anxiety!
In addition to offering very gentle dentistry, we offer various methods to help anxious patients get through their dental visits, such as nitrous oxide, conscious enteral sedation, or a combination of the two.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that is inhaled that is a very good analgesic, which means it decreases pain. Nitrous is a very safe and very ideal way of calming anxious patients of all ages.
Enteral or Oral Sedation is when a patient takes prescribed medications prior to the dental visit and even during the dental visit occasionally in order to relax the patient and help tolerate treatment. This type of sedation is minimal and the patient remains conscious but very relaxed.
Please speak to us if you feel you may require any type of treatment for dental anxiety and we can discuss our options.
Everyone knows that dental hygiene is one of the most important ways to take care of not just your teeth, but your overall health in general. That being said, not everyone wants to sit through a cleaning or other dental procedures being fully awake and aware.
There is a now solution for individuals just like you and it is called sedation dentistry. The way it works is simple – you are sedated and the work is done. Once completed, we wake you up and you go about your day with cleaned teeth.
As you know, cleanings should be done every 6 months. This prevents the build-up of plaque, tartar, and can avert larger dental emergencies like cavities and even decay, abscesses, and root issues thanks to the preventative maintenance provided by cleanings.
Sedated Teeth Cleanings
Here are some of the benefits that regular sedated cleanings provide:
Improved Hygiene: Your teeth and gums will benefit from regular cleanings as potential harm is averted. When you allow plaque and grime to accumulate on your teeth this could harm the enamel, gums, and lead to problems including gingivitis, decay, abscesses, cavities, and nerve root issue.
No Pain or Anxiety: Sedation means that you go to sleep with a mouth in need of care and wake up with the cleaning completed. No pain, no anxiety, just an in-and-out dental procedure.
Overall Health: Clean teeth are a key component of a healthy lifestyle, in fact, if you get cleanings regularly your chances of having cardiac ailments decrease significantly
Thanks to sedation dentistry, dental hygiene can be painless and easy. Don’t wait another day to get the healthy pearly whites that you deserve!
