Trips to the dentist’s office are a necessity in order to protect your teeth and gums. However, many people of all ages have trouble going to the dentist that often because they are too scared or experience high levels of anxiety. In order to get the treatments you need, talk to someone at our Orlando, FL office about getting sedation dentistry. IV sedation is a great option that comes with several benefits.
1. DEEPER SEDATION THAN OTHER TECHNIQUES
There are actually numerous varieties of dental sedation. Laughing gas is a common form, and there is also medication people can take to feel more relaxed. IV sedation offers a higher level of sedation, so you are completely unconscious for the procedure.
2. ADJUSTABLE LEVELS OF SEDATION
Everyone has a different reaction to sedation. A pill may not necessarily work the same way on one person as someone else. The levels of IV sedation a person is getting throughout a treatment can be adjusted throughout the duration of the visit. If a person is about to wake up, the dosage can be increased.
3. GAG REFLEX IS SUPPRESSED
One reason why some people have such a hard time in the dentist’s chair is that an overactive gag reflex can make procedures troublesome. IV sedation suppresses that, so our dentist can work more easily.
4. MORE PROCEDURES DONE AT ONCE
Some treatments would ordinarily require multiple visits in order to reduce the patient’s level of discomfort. However, with sedation the patient can get everything done in a single visit. This is particularly advantageous for people with busy schedules who do not want to go to the dentist’s office numerous times within a few weeks.
The office of Drs. Lawrence and Kyle Duffy is available to help you get the oral care you need. Call us to schedule something right away, and we can even provide you with sedation if required.
