Nervous About Your Dental Appointment? Sedation Dentistry Is Available

July 21, 2015

Sedation dentistry can help you relax during an appointment.We’ve all been there before — anxious and nervous about a dental appointment. It makes sense. Movies have always poked fun at dental phobia by a prospective patient in the waiting room getting ever so nervous at the sound of the dental drill. We understand why anyone would be a tad trepidatious about treatment after hearing that high-pitched scream as it goes to work on a patient’s mouth. Being nervous about a dental appointment is nothing to be ashamed of. There are lots of people out there who suffer from dental anxiety just like you and it takes a lot of courage to just walk through our doors. We’re here to tell you that there are ways to combat dental phobia, and it’s with sedation dentistry. At our office in Winthrop, MA, you can count on excellent sedation therapy provided by a caring staff. Dr. Brooks is a master at offering sedation dentistry services and he wants you to be relaxed and comfortable for your next dental appointment.

Who Can Benefit From Sedation Dentistry?

There are plenty of patients out there that could benefit greatly from sedation dentistry. Remember that part about the dental drill from earlier? You know that sound; it’s screech can make your ears bleed. You want no part of it. Hey, we get it. It isn’t just the sound of a dental drill that keeps prospective patients away from the dental chair.

Maybe you have dental anxiety but don’t know why. It isn’t a dental drill that makes you nervous, just something else that you can’t quite put your finger on. Ask yourself the following questions before considering sedation dentistry treatment:

  • “Do I suffer from a bad gag reflex?”
  • “Does numbing not work for me?”
  • “Do I have to have multiple procedures done during my visit?”
  • “Does the smell of a dental office make me want to walk out?”

These questions are not uncommon. These aren’t the only reasons why someone would rather sit at home than undergo any type of dental procedure. The list of people who do opt out is growing by the day, but we’re here to tell you that our sedation dentistry services can help ease the tension you feel about going ot the dentist.

Dr. Brooks incorporates three medications during sedation dentistry treatment that will leave you feeling relaxed throughout the procedure:

  • Lorazepam
  • Vallium
  • Triazolam

All three are designed with your absolute comfort in mind. Going to the dentist shouldn’t have to be a nerve-racking experience, but rather one that’s designed to keep your oral health in tip-top shape.
