Dentistry sedation is a great option, if you are one of the millions of Americans who avoid the dentist. Perhaps you suffered previous pain or trauma at the dentist? In many cases, people stop going for routine dental care because they are fearful about it.
Not visiting the dentist actually jeopardizes your dental state and your overall health. But the good news is that Ginger Price DDS is a sedation dentist and so you no longer need to postpone any regular checkups, repair, construction, dental implants, or your brand-new smile, because she can provide you with any cosmetic dental treatments that are not only tolerable, but also comfortable.
Sedation dentistry involves a few different tiers of sedation to help reduce any anxiety you, the dental patient, might feel while you are still alert. This means that you will be able to respond verbally and physically to your cosmetic dentist while remaining in a relaxed state.
Of course your sedation dentist can choose a moderate dose so you only respond to greater stimulus in the office, or deeper sedation where you will not be consciously responsive to the environment. All of the sedation drugs have been rated safe for this use on a therapeutic index. It is likely that you will remember little about your visit after you take them; this is normal and nothing to worry about.
Conscious sedation dentistry is commonly called relaxation dentistry, or comfort dentistry, because it helps calm fears and induces relaxation. One of the best options oral sedation dentistry offers is that it allows flexibility so we can address the level of anxiety of the patient with the right dosage. Dr Ginger Price will determine just what sedation is appropriate for your weight, height and level of anxiety.
Normally, your dosage will be given upon arrival at the clinic and so it is prudent to arrange for someone to drive you home. The American Dental Association has established some clear guidelines for sedation dentistry.
