If you have been avoiding the dentist because you know you need periodontal treatment, information about IV sedation can relieve your fears.
What Is IV Sedation?
When you have IV sedation for dental treatment, you will not be completely unconscious. Instead, your body and mind will be relaxed. This is known as twilight sleep. You will not feel any pain or anxiety during your treatment.
Why Sedation Dentistry May Be Right For You:
Many people are afraid of dental treatments, due to anxiety or fear of pain. Periodontal disease can progress and worsen when you hesitate to have the treatment you need. Consider IV sedation as a worthy option.
IV sedation can make the entire process easier for you. If the procedure takes longer than is expected, you will not be bothered by fatigue. You will not experience pain, even if you have sensitive gums or teeth.
After your procedure is completed, you are not likely to remember it. This can increase your confidence the next time you need to visit the dentist.
When you are fully relaxed as a result of IV sedation, periodontal treatment will be easier for your periodontist, too. He can complete the procedure without distractions or other unnecessary difficulties.
Your dental health is important. Total oral health means healthy teeth and gums. If you are showing any signs of periodontal disease and your dentist suggests treatment, do not allow the condition to worsen.
Make an appointment without fear of consequences. The short period of time you spend at the dentist’s office can allow for effective treatment and the avoidance of long-term dental problems. Ask Dr. Stoner about IV sedation. This pain-free way to procedures is the start to total oral health.
