Miramar Beach Dental & Orthodontics has a new IV sedation technique that eases patients’ anxieties and keeps them calm during treatment.
Miramar Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 17, 2017
The team at Miramar Beach Dental & Orthodontics has an answer to patients who struggle with dental anxiety or patients who have trouble staying calm in the dental chair. Although people may feel comfortable at the thought of sedation or “going under,” the truth is that patients will not go to sleep during the appointment unless they decide to.
The new method of treatment is delivered by Dr. Jason E. Baker, DDS who is certified in IV Sedation for patients. In many cases, the patient will not go to sleep during the dental or orthodontic procedure since “Sleep dentistry is usually reserved for oral surgery and lengthy procedures,” Miramar Beach Dental & Orthodontics writes on their website.
The team will only administer the amount of sedation necessary to relax the patient during the appointment. During the appointment, patients can still engage and talk with the dentist if they desire to. Along with Dr. Baker’s certification in delivering IV sedation, the team at Miramar Beach Dental & Orthodontics also has certification in Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support.
Another benefit of sedation dentistry is that the effects will wear off within an hour of the procedure for most patients. The amount of time this takes can vary on the patient, the procedure and the amount of sedation, which Baker will go over in detail at a consultation.
This new method makes the sedation process less traumatic or frightening for some patients. With IV sedation, patients will not have to wear a mask that administers the gas or go through more complex of a process. If you are interested in IV sedation at the next appointment for you or a loved one, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment at Miramar Beach Dental & Orthodontics today.
