While the American Dental Association recommends dental checkups and cleanings every six months, the unfortunate reality is that many Americans skip going to the dentist because of dental anxiety. This anxiety may stem from embarrassment over the condition of their teeth, unpleasant experiences in the past, or stress. Our Aventura dentist, Dr. Arun Garg, offers sedation dentistry for patients who need more help relaxing in the dental chair.
At our Aventura dental office, we give our patients options for sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide is the most common form of sedation dentistry used to help patients with anxiety or fears. This form of sedation uses “laughing gas” to help patients feel a warm, calm sensation during the procedure. After the gas is no longer inhaled, the effects of sedation wear off. This is beneficial for patients who need to drive themselves home from their appointment without a companion.
For more complex procedures and oral surgery, conscious oral sedation helps our patients feel a just before sleep, drowsy state of consciousness. This allows patients with dental anxiety to feel completely in control while also feeling completely relaxed. Our Aventura dental office staff is experienced with handling oral sedation procedures with the utmost safety and compassion. You can rest assured that our team of professionals will monitor your vital signs and ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
Sedation Dentistry and Efficiency
While sedation dentistry is a great option for getting dental phobic or fearful patients the treatment they need, sedation methods can also be helpful for the patient who is too busy to schedule multiple office visits. Nitrous oxide can help patients feel completely comfortable while our Aventura dentist completes a variety of needed dental treatments in one office visit. This allows our patients to spend less time in the dental office and more time doing the things they love.
