Deptford, NJ (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Anxiety and fear can stop people in their tracks when dental care is necessary. There are some people that avoid this care altogether due to the extreme fear that is experienced. This delay in treatment, can lead to even more serious dental problems, and even result in complete tooth loss later in life. Dr. Ballard of Deptford Family Dental understands this anxiety and fear and now offers sedation dentistry for any patient that is experiencing any type of apprehension about their visit.
With sedation dentistry, patients are able to be fully relaxed, or even asleep, during their dental procedures, such as fillings, root canals or oral surgery. They no longer have to experience the pain associated with a needle or worry about the discomfort that will be felt during the visit. In some cases, a patient will awaken with no recollection of the procedure, at all.
As a dentist that offers sedation in Deptford, Dr. Ballard utilizes the sedation modalities as a method to completely eliminate the fear and anxiety that is associated with dental visits – which is especially important for any patient that has an extreme dental phobia. Dr. Ballard and his staff have obtained the proper licenses and can safely administer sedation to their patients.
There are three main types of sedation that are available, depending on each patient’s individual needs. Inhalation sedation is the administration of nitrous oxide, commonly called laughing gas, oral sedation is when a patient is give a liquid or pill and IV sedation is given to patients through a type of injection that goes directly into the vein. IV and oral sedation are the two types of sedation that are often referred to collectively as sleep dentistry.
Dr. Ballard of Deptford Family Dental takes the time to evaluate each patient individually to determine which sedation method is most appropriate. “I want to ensure that each patient is completely comfortable during their visit. Sedation is the ideal way to ensure that no anxiety is experience during their visit.”
The fact is that when it comes to dental care, there should not be anything standing in the way of a patient receiving the care they need. Patients can quell their worries and get the care that is needed to ensure a healthy smile, and overall great health.
