Dental Associates of Arlington Introduces a New Way to Reduce Dental Anxiety

Posted: 21st September 2016 08:59

Dental Associates of Arlington is pleased to announce Sedation Dentistry into the practice. Oral sedation is the new life-changing way to treat patients with these severe adverse emotions towards dentistry. Sedation dentistry often involves putting patients in a near-sleep-like state, so that they are unaware during treatment, and wake up hours later with no negative memories of the procedure. Patients are enthusiastic about Sedation Dentistry with one patient saying "I'm one of those people who has always hated going to the dentist, in fact avoided it for too long recently (5+ years). I am a dentist convert!  I used the Sedation Dentistry option to have a replacement filling, crown and whole mouth deep scaling all done in one visit - tremendous alternative to all numerous separate visits."

Oral sedation is accomplished by giving the patient sedation medication and/or nitrous oxide gas, providing a comfortable place to rest and allow for the procedure to take place. The doctor and staff attend to the patient for their treatment, from general cleaning to cosmetic procedures and even emergency dentistry with a minimum of interference and anxiety for the patient.
