Many people can get nervous when their dental check up comes around. Some people just don’t like the whistling and whirring of dental drills.
Some people even go as far as to start missing check ups or rescheduling further and further into the future. Naturally, we try to find a win win situation, we want to help people keep their mouth in check, whilst also keeping our patients calm and relaxed enough to sit in our chair.
But is this really possible? The short and simple answer: Yes.
It can be achieved using Sedation Dentistry, which as you might of figured out, is being sedated at the dental office.
But it’s not just a case of putting you to sleep and waking you up when it’s over, there are many different options you can take to make sure the treatment is best for you. You could opt for oral sedation, where you take a pill before your appointment, and you get a short bout of amnesia. You can still answer the dentist and nurse correctly and you still know what you’re doing, but you won’t recall your appointment afterwards.
