PAIN FREE DENTISTRY
The thought of going to the dentist to for regular dental checkups or to get the necessary dental treatments may be enough to put some people in a state of intense panic – mostly because of the perception that dental treatments automatically equate to a painful and uncomfortable experience. Countless people from all over the world have to endure even the simplest dental treatment in a heightened state of panic, sometimes fearful of even being on the dentist’s chair.
The fear that comes with going to the dentist for dental treatments can be debilitating; it is not unheard of for people to take their time in going to the dentist because of this fear – even if their dental problems need the most immediate dental attention. There are even some who do not go to the dentist at all to escape the fear and the perceived pain that comes with every dental treatment; as a result, these people do not get the dental health care that they need and deserve, and suffer the consequences of poor dental health choices for the better part of their lives.
Do you feel afraid every time you go to the dentist? Are you hesitant to go for a dental checkup, or a dental treatment, because you are afraid of the pain that will accompany such procedures? If you would like to know more about dentistry that can be free from pain and discomfort, read on to discover the pain free dentistry option!.
Pain free dentistry is possible with the use of sedation techniques, which will ensure that you do not feel any discomfort or pain while undergoing the necessary dental treatments or procedures. Conscious sedation is a sedation technique that aims to bring you to a completely relaxed state so that you will only feel a positive sense of well-being all throughout a dental procedure. You will be completely conscious even under conscious sedation – this will enable you to respond with all of the dentist’s requests throughout the duration of the dental treatment; the great thing about conscious sedation is – you will not remember any unpleasant parts of the treatment afterwards!
The sedative used in conscious sedation or IV sedation will be administered intravenously before the dental procedure can even start. To ensure that you will have a completely pain free experience, a local anaesthetic may also be used in combination with the conscious or IV sedation technique. Conscious sedation or IV sedation will also help if you have a strong gag reflex – the gag reflex can be controlled with conscious sedation, making it much easier for the dentist to proceed with the necessary dental treatment without having to worry about your gag reflex concerns.
