Calm Your Fears with Sedation Dentistry
August 15, 2014
Something that many people have in common is a fear. Whether it is a fear of snakes or flying, may people live with so many different fears, and it may affect the way they live their daily lives. For some the fear may be slight, but for others, it can be crippling. A fear that many people have in common is a fear of the dentist. Because of this fear, people may delay the much needed dental work they need performed, causing them to live their lives with a deteriorating mouth. Though you may feel as though there is nothing you can do to get over your fear, Dr. Banda is able to help. By offering sedation dentistry at his Bloomfield Hills, MI dental office, he is able to calm the fears of his patients with ease.
Aside from our patients who have a fear of the dentist, sedation dentistry is also able to help those who suffer from TMJ and people who find it difficult to keep their mouths open for extended periods of time. One form of sedation we offer our patients is IV sedation. With this, we will sit down and talk to you, evaluating your anxiety level. This is a very personalized form of sedation, allowing us to administer just the right amount to ensure your absolute comfort. You will receive the sedation intravenously, and you will feel extreme relaxation and absolutely no pain during your dental work. Our doctors will be able to perform your dental work with ease while you sit and rest.
The other form of sedation we offer is oral conscious sedation. This involves taking a prescribed pill or drinking a liquid medication before your appointment. Again, you will be able to unwind while your dental work is being performed, and you will not feel any pain. With both forms of sedation, your vital signs, such as your breathing and heart rate, will be monitored, making sure everything is going smoothly. Another important thing to remember is that you will need a trusted loved one to bring you home after your dental appointment, as the effects of the sedation will still be in your system.
