For many people a visit to the dentist causes extreme anxiety. This anxiety can be elevated and cause health issues like high blood pressure. But with today’s modern medicine, patients should not fear the dentist anymore. Sedation dentistry is a popular way to treat patients and may be a covered benefit with dental benefit carriers when major dental procedures are performed.
There are many advantages to the patient and to the dental team for performing sedation dentistry. These benefits include:
- Less emotional and physical stress
- Increased comfort
- Reduced gag reflex
- Little to no memory of the treatment
- Time saving – fewer appointments needed
Thomas Gonzales D.D.S. was a professor of IV Sedation at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. He taught advanced techniques to other dentists. He can explain the benefits of sedation dentistry to alleviate a patient’s fear of dentistry and help his patients understand why a dentist makes this option available to them. It is yet another way that we can provide excellent customer service to our patients while taking care of their dental needs.
