Sleep Dentist/Anesthesia & Sedation Dental Treatment Clinic in Delhi/Dental Treatment under sedation in Delhi/Sedation Dentist in Delhi/ Dental Phobia in Delhi
TREATMENT FOR ANXIOUS OR NERVOUS PATIENTS
A large percentage of the population avoids the dentist or dental treatment due to fear. This all-too-common “DENTAL PHOBIA” prevents people from receiving necessary routine dental care, ultimately resulting in total loss of the tooth structure and potentially compromising the health and functionality of their mouth and smile.
For some of the patients with a high level of Nervousness/Anxiety we have introduced Sedation Dentistry. Here we provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain individuals, too scared to undergo dental treatment they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia or have difficulty controlling their movements (this includes children).
WHAT IS SEDATION?
Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the use of sedatives. Sedative drugs (tranquillizers, depressants, anti-anxiety medications, nitrous oxide, etc.) can be administered in a variety of ways.
There are different types and degrees of dental sedation; the sedation dentistry technique recommended by your dentist will depend upon the treatment being performed and/or the degree of your dental anxiety. Your dentist will be able to tell you if you are a candidate for moderate sedation with oral sedatives or nitrous oxide, or deeper sedation with intravenous drugs.
Note that sedation is different from anesthetic injections. Although some forms of sedation may raise your threshold for pain, most dental treatments still require a local anesthetic injected in the mouth, even when sedation dentistry techniques are performed.
DIFFERENT LEVELS OF SEDATION
The four dental sedation methods listed above can provide varying degrees of sedation. These include:
This refers to methods of inducing “light sedation”.There are several forms of sedatives that result in anxiolysis; however, nitrous oxide, a form of inhalation sedation, is the most commonly used method to bring on this type of relaxation.
Moderate dental sedation can refer to either nitrous oxide or IV sedation. These sedatives can induce conscious sedation, where the patient will be awake and able to respond to commands, but will be in a state of extreme relaxation.
Deep sedation refers to a state between unconscious and conscious dental sedation. Patients will not be able to respond to commands in a consistent manner and may need some assistance with breathing in the event that they are unable to keep their airway open.
General anesthesia causes the airway to close. As a result, patients will need assistance with breathing and will not respond to commands. This method of dental sedation is reserved for oral surgery.
