Sedation Dentistry Sheboygan

Relaxation For A Positive Dental Experience

Beyond our best intentions some of us will do pretty much anything to get out of having to go to the dentist. When millions of Americans struggle with dental anxiety their fear of the dentist can be so great and overwhelming that they put off curing their toothache or pains for years. In the end what started out as only a small dental concern might have developed into a larger, much more expensive or painful condition. It’s not uncommon to feel nervous about going to the dentist but it’s also not healthy to put off going. If fear is keeping you out of the the dental chair and away from your ideal health, sedation dentistry may be the simple answer you just haven’t thought of yet!

What Does Sedation Dentistry Feel Like?

Sedation dentistry has been used for years to help patients with various dental needs to easily relax as they receive painless and gentle care. As it continues to grow in popularity more and more patients are recognizing the benefits of sedative medicine in finding comfortable relaxation throughout their appointments. Simply by taking a sedative pill or breathing in oral sedative medicine patients may reach a pleasant state of calm with little effort. Each patient feels calm and relaxed within minutes of dental sedation and stays safely awake as Dr. Bloom guides them through gentle treatment.

Sedation

What Types of Sedation Dentistry Exist?

The most popular forms of sedation dentistry are inhaled and oral sedation which allow the patient to remain conscious and able to communicate during the process. Deeper sedation methods such as IV sedation exists when a patient wishes to reach an even deeper sense of relaxation or not remember the procedure. Dr. Bloom is happy to discuss sedation dentistry methods with you to find the most comfortable method to best suits your needs.

Inhaled sedation is the most popular choice of sedation dentistry that uses nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) to induce complete relaxation throughout the body. A local anesthetic is also applied to numb the affected area and eliminate pain.

Oral sedation uses oral sedative medications to induce relaxation and ease anxiety before you’re even at your appointment. These sedatives are taken either the night before or an hour prior to visiting the dentist, which gives you time ahead of your appointment to ease into your visit at Bloom Family Dental.

Can Anyone Receive Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry has helped patients of a variety of backgrounds and ages to safely relax throughout any dental appointment. Dr. Bloom will carefully review your medical records and get to know your concerns before authorizing sedative treatment. Once sedative medicine has been administered you will be carefully monitored to ensure the best support throughout your appointment.

What About Safety?

Dr. Bloom’s special training and experience administering sedation treatments has helped patients at Bloom Family Dental feel more at ease receiving quality dental care. For most patients side effects are minimal and feelings of sedation wear off quickly after the procedure is completed. Because you might still feel too relaxed to start driving right away our team highly recommends that you prepare alternative transportation to and from your appointment. For patients who request deeper sedation methods we recommend that they plan to rest after the appointment and avoid vigorous activity, driving or drinking alcohol until symptoms subside.
