You have always been jittery about seeing a dentist. Even a simple cleaning gets you worked up. As a result, you have had to cancel dental appointments at the last minute. But now, after skipping multiple dental appointments, your oral health is taking a toll on you. You have a toothache that won’t disappear, and plaque is quickly building up, putting you at risk of gum disease. Does that sound like you?
Just like some people are panicky about heights, crowds, or open spaces, others have a fear of the dentist. Unfortunately, if you have dental anxiety or fear, it can prevent you from accessing vital dental appointments, putting your oral health in danger. The good news is that you can fight off dental anxiety with oral conscious sedation from Mona Dental for Kids.
Thanks to sedation dentistry, dentists like Dr. Mona Houshiar can help you combat your dental fear and enjoy a relaxed time whenever you visit a dentist. While there are several sedation alternatives, many patients love oral sedation, especially those that fear injections or don’t want to breathe gases through a mask.
To benefit from oral sedation, your dentist prescribes a pill that you take an hour or so before the dental procedure. Under this sedative, you will be awake and able to follow instructions. However, you will be more relaxed and won’t remember much about the details of the procedure.
Before and after the procedure, you need to have someone drive you since the sedation doesn’t wear off immediately.
If the mere thought of a dentist sends a cold shiver down your spine, oral conscious sedation can be the solution you have been looking for. Dentists and patients alike are falling in love with oral sedation because:
