Pendleton, SC (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Arthur Bruce Dental is pleased to announce that they are now offering oral sedation dentistry. Oral sedation dentistry is a relatively new option that helps patients feel less anxious about dental procedures.
Oral sedation dentistry involves the patient taking a prescription medication, like Halcion, the night before and the morning of the procedure. Halcion is commonly used for oral sedation dentistry and makes the patient drowsy. Some patients fall asleep during the procedure and don’t remember much about the procedure afterwards.
During the procedure, the patient’s heart rate and blood pressure are carefully monitored to ensure the patient is responding properly to the treatment and there are no issues. Due to the side-effects of the medication, patients must have a driver to bring them to appointment and to drive them home.
Using oral sedation dentistry is good for those who have had past dental trauma, those who experience difficulty or the fear of getting numb, those with years of dental work to catch up on, or those with a bad gag reflex. It cuts the anxiety of going through the procedure as well as concerns about pain.
