Dental anxieties hold a lot of people back from going to the dentist. The fears and phobias make many avoid going to the dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. As a result, dental complications often go undiagnosed and untreated until serious damage has occurred. Even then, when patients know they have a dental complication, they still put off going to the dentist because they know they are going to require treatment. The longer you wait, the more severe the problem is going to become, requiring more extensive treatments. As your Westfield family dentist, we are here to put your fears to ease to make restorations as stress-free as possible.
Easing Dental Fears
Most dental fears are derived from the fear of pain or discomfort of a dental procedure, which is often caused from a bad dental experience in the past. As a result, many will avoid the dentist at all costs to not have to undergo a restorative procedure that might cause pain or discomfort. Now, you don’t have to fear the dentist with Westfield sedation dentistry. As a sedation dentist, we offer various types of sedation to make your restoration procedures as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
We offer IV sedation to patients who are fearful of the dentist or for those who have to undergo extensive dental treatments. IV sedation allows you to feel absolutely no pain or discomfort during your dental procedures. Using a safe and fast-acting sedation medication that’s administered through an IV, we are able to control the amount of sedation you receive to cater to each patient’s comfort level. We closely monitor your vital signs throughout the procedure to ensure there aren’t any complications.
Once the IV sedation has taken effect, your fears and worries will instantly fade away. You’ll be completely relaxed as we perform the necessary dental procedures quicker and more efficiently. This reduces the number of times you’ll have to visit the dentist because we can get more done at once.
IV sedation is not only perfect for those who have dental fears, but those who have difficulty with other anesthetics. In addition, those who have a strong gag reflex or those with special needs will benefit from IV sedation as your body is relaxed, allowing us to complete the necessary procedures.
