Conquer Your Dental Anxiety With Sedation Dentistry

Filed under: Sedation dentistry — Tags: , , , — sleepdallasdr @ 2:42 pm

Going to the dentist can cause some patients to freak out. Some take their anxiety to an entirely different and very unhealthy level. Surprisingly, most patients who suffer from some kind of dental phobia would much rather endure the overwhelming pain of a toothache than step foot in a dentist’s office. Don’t do this. Dental fear is no laughing matter, and if you suffer from any type of anxiety we want you to know you’re in good hands. Our sedation dentistry treatment is extremely helpful if you’re nervous about a dental procedure. The team at 21st Century Dental Med Spa & Sleep Center in Irving, TX wants your appointment to be as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Our team is here to help any way they can so you can spend less time in our office and more time showing off your smile. For the best sedation dentist, Irving has a place to call home: 21st Century Dental Med Spa & Sleep Center.

 

What is Sedation Dentistry?

What is sedation dentistry? Basically, it uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. There are certain levels of sedation that are applied which include:

  • Minimal sedation – a patient is awake but relaxed.
  • Moderate sedation – possible slurring of words when speaking.
  • Deep sedation – on the edge of consciousness but can still be awoken.
  • General anesthesia – out like a light.

Though typically reserved for patients with legitimate dental anxiety, sedation dentistry may also be appropriate for people who:

  • Have a low pain threshold
  • Can’t sit still in a dentist’s chair
  • Have very sensitive teeth
  • Have a bad gag reflex
  • Need a large amount of dental work completed

 

What Are The Benefits?

Sedation dentistry has grown popular for the past few years due to the numerous benefits it offers. For some people who are suffering from phobia, this is their only option in order to undergo dental procedures and have an improved dental health.

  • Overcome fear and anxiety – patients will feel more relaxed and free from stress as your procedure is performed.
  • No pain – patients shall have an increased pain threshold with little or no anesthesia at all.
  • Longer procedure, less appointments – patients will be able to endure longer dental procedures without discomfort.
  • Save your money – Less procedures mean more money in your pocket.

How To Get A Straight Smile With Invisalign

man-drinking-coffeeTraditional braces can be a pain. Prickly wires and a constant feeling of metal on your teeth can quickly become bothersome. That’s where Invisalign technology comes in nicely. As one of the more popular orthodontic treatments, it’s the preferred way to straighten teeth by both adults and teens. The best part about it is people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth! We offer this and other fantastic dentistry services that aim to keep your smile beautiful. For clear braces, Irving residents know who to turn to: 21st Century Dental Med Spa & Sleep Center in Irving, TX. Our team will ensure you’re well educated on Invisalign technology that is becoming more popular by the day.

 

What is Invisalign?

If you were born with perfect teeth, you’re lucky. For those of us who weren’t so lucky, traditional braces have always been the go-to treatment. In fact, for many years, metal braces were the ONLY treatment. Luckily, there’s a sleek alternative that has turned the orthodontic world upside down: Invisalign. It takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements that are planned by our team of experts. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth. How cool is that?

 

Advantages of Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

With regular braces, you may experience some or all of the following: pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries caused by the brace wires, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, and more. Plus, there are also the personal food sacrifices —popcorn, chips, bagels, hard-crusted bread, pizza crust, pretzels, nuts, carrots, corn on the cob, and more.

With Invisalign, you can enjoy all of the food you crave without sacrificing improvement. So, would you rather deal with metal and prickly wires, or straighten you teeth invisibly while enjoying your favorite foods? The choice is clear. Your teeth deserve the best and most discreet treatment, and you’ll receive that with Invisalign braces. For invisible braces, Irving residents should look no further than our Invisalign technology.
