If you are fearful of the dentist, then it is time to smile your fears away withsedation dentistry. It is important that you tell Dr. Yanni that you have a dental anxiety. Keeping fears hidden can only lead to a much more unpleasant experience. At Dr. Nahel Yanni’s office we offer several types of sedation dentistry to make your dental experience a pleasant one.
Not only patients that have dental phobias can have sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is for anyone that has a complicated treatment case or people who want to have all their dental treatment done in one visit. It is done on such procedures as, dental implants, root canals, crowns, bridges, and dentures.
A local anesthetic, commonly called Novocain, is a drug that is injected near a nerve to prevent stimulation from reaching the brain where it would be interpreted by a person as pain. Sedation dentists interested in pain free dentistry know, these work well as a temporary relief of a tooth ache.
Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Dr. Yanni will prescribe a sedative drug to be taken by mouth prior to the planned treatment. If the patient has an even greater degree of dental anxiety, Dr. Yanni may prescribe and oral conscious sedation to be taken at home one hour prior to going to sleep the evening before the appointment. Sedation dentistry is most effective in managing milder cases of dental anxiety.
Inhalation Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Dr. Yanni also uses laughing gas (nitrous oxide and oxygen) during sedation dentistry procedures. This has been a mainstay of sedation dentistry for generations and still remains the most frequently employed technique.
IV Sedation Dentistry
Intravenous sedation means that the sedative medication is administered directly into the bloodstream using a needle inserted into the vein. Intravenous conscious sedation dentistry is a very safe and highly effective technique to manage moderate to severe levels of anxiety.
