Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
The Westlake Village sedation dentist at Sedation Dental Office is now offering complimentary oral sedation with treatment for new patients. Studies have shown that about 15 percent of Americans suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. These common conditions are more than merely uncomfortable for patients; they can also keep patients from seeking desperately needed dental care.
Patients with dental anxiety or phobia in Westlake Village and surrounding areas now have an opportunity to manage their symptoms and get essential dental care without fear or anxiety. This special runs throughout the month of September and enables patients to receive essential dental treatment regardless of fear or anxiety.
Although there are several types of sedation available for nervous patients, this special features oral sedation which is one of the most popular types of sedation. You or your loved one will be prescribed an oral anti-anxiety medication which is taken before the treatment. The medication helps you relax, suppress anxiety, and silence fears.
Patients who may be candidates for sedation dentistry include those who:
- Have sensitive gag reflexes
- Have sensitive teeth or difficulty getting numb
- Have suffered a previous traumatic dental experience
- Suffer from dental anxiety or phobia
- Require long or complex dental treatments
- Prefer to combine multiple treatments at one appointment
- Have conditions that interfere with their ability to sit still for long periods
- Anyone who simply wants to be more comfortable and relaxed during treatment.
Oral sedation is popular, but it may not be right for every patient. Other options available include inhaled sedation, which uses nitrous oxide to induce a sensations of calm, and IV sedation, which is administered through an IV for a deeper form of sedation.
Conscious sedation is an excellent option for patients who have been putting off necessary dental care or ignoring symptoms out of fear or anxiety.
