How to Stop Being Afraid of the Dentist with Sedation Dentistry

Woman Inhalation Sedation DentistSedation dentistry will not cause you to fall asleep, even though sometimes you may feel like you did. Instead, it will allow you to feel relaxed, peaceful, and comfortable during a dental procedure. Many patients at Friendly Dentistry report that they don’t even notice time passing and feel completely at ease during their dental cleaning. Since many medications used in sedation dentistry have an amnesiac effect, you may even have little or no memory that the dental appointment happened at all.

What is the Oral Sedation Dentistry Process?

The sedation process is simple. Before your appointment, your dentist will give you one pill to take orally. The sedation medication we use is Triazolam, a derivative of Valium. Compared to sedation dentistry with Nitrous Oxide or Anesthesia, our Greensboro Dentists have used Triazolam for years, because it is so safe, painless, and effective. Before your procedure begins, we will connect you to a medical monitor, which will allow us to track your blood pressure, pulse, and blood oxygen levels during sedation dental care. If you are not comfortable enough, we can easily administer more medicine, as needed.

What Causes Dental Anxiety, Fear and Phobia?

Sedation dentistry at Friendly Dentistry in Greensboro might be right for you if you experience one or more of the following:

  • Lack of numbness/resistance to Novocain during common dental procedures
  • A traumatic dental experience in the past
  • Fear of ridicule due to significant dental damage
  • A sensitive gag reflex, sensitive gums, or sensitive teeth

Sedation Dentistry is also an excellent option for individuals who may require several procedures during one treatment, or those who require a significantly long treatment. If you live near the Triad and are interested in trying sedation dentistry or have any questions or concerns regarding this procedure, contact our Greensboro dentist office today!
