Many patients suffer from dental anxiety, and avoid necessary dental treatment while putting their oral health in danger. Dr. Kopfler and team with Slidell Sedation Dentistry is proud to offer sedation dentistry treatment, a method of helping patients that suffer from dental anxiety undergo dental treatment that they would not otherwise be able to tolerate. During treatment, sedatives administered by a dental professional allow patients to feel calm and relaxed. For those reluctant to visit the dentist regularly because they are afraid of the dentist, there is no longer a need to worry! Comfortable dental treatment is available!
For those suffering from severe dental anxiety, it is very important to schedule a consultation with a trusted dental professional to discuss fears and treatment solutions. Overall health should also be discussed to ensure that the Dentist is aware of any underlying medical problems that may impact the sedation treatment option used.
Many sedation treatment options are available for patients depending on individual levels of dental anxiety. In most cases, sedatives include: medication, intravenous therapy, or nitrous oxide, otherwise known as “laughing gas.” Additional treatments include anti-anxiety medications and tranquilizers. Individual cases will be evaluated, and sedatives will be administered in various degrees and doses. Any physical pain involved with the procedure may be reduced by use of a local anesthetic.
