Do You Have Dental Anxiety? Sedation Dentistry May Be Right for You June 27, 2016

Do You Have Dental Anxiety? Sedation Dentistry May Be Right for You, Ripon, Wisconsin

The dentists from Hillside Dental Associates in Ripon, WI, are passionate about the dentistry arts. They’ve dedicated their lives to ensuring the oral health and hygiene of all of their patients, but they know that not everyone shares their enthusiasm for dentistry. Many people avoid going to the dentist because of intense anxiety.

The anxiety can be attributed to a past dental experience, but even people who have never had a painful dental incident can find themselves avoiding checkups out of fear. Unfortunately, according to the dentists from Hillside Dental Associates, when people avoid the dentist they can actually do harm to their oral hygiene. So, in an effort to better serve those who struggle to attend regular dental appointments, the Ripon dental office has started offering sedation dentistry services. 

SedationConscious sedation dentistry is a cutting-edge approach to modern dental care. Patients who opt for sedation will be prescribed a medication by their dentist, which they can take prior to their appointment. 

During the actual appointment, the dentist may also administer Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas, to induce further sedation, if necessary. Most patients who go through this type of sedation process notice an immediate decrease in anxiety and find that the memory of their dental appointment is either greatly blurred or erased completely. 

Different levels of sedation are appropriate for different people and procedures, so a consultation is required prior to scheduling a sedated dental appointment. If you’ve avoided the dentist for years out of fear and stress, targeted sedation may just be the answer you’ve been looking for. Call Hillside Dental Associates at (920) 748-6122 to schedule a consultation today or visit the dental office online now to learn more.
