It is natural to feel uneasy or anxious about your upcoming dental appointment. Whether you’re scheduled for a regular dental checkup or a root canal, the fear of pain that may be caused by a dental procedure is commonly experienced by children and adults alike.
Sometimes patients get so anxious that they may not receive proper treatment. Delayed medical attention especially in oral health issues can lead to severe health conditions in the future including cardiac problems.
Fortunately, modern dentistry has advanced to address one of the most widely prevalent issues of anxiety. Today, patients have a variety of solutions to make treatments virtually painless and non-invasive. Sedation dentistry can relax and comfort patients in a dentist’s chair to receive appropriate treatment without pain or uneasiness. Sedation dentistry uses medication to calm anxiety and includes inhaled, oral, and intravenous sedatives.
