Dental Sedation for Adults

You dread visiting the dentist but there is a better way. If you have put off doing dental work for months or even years, you aren’t alone!

Dental fears affect 1 in 4 people. It is a major stumbling block for many people. Otherwise clever and rational people jeopardize their health because of the anxiety and fear built around a trip to the dentist. They assume the visit will be painful or unpleasant. Our experienced sedation dentist in Westminster, MD can help ease those fears!

Dental Sedation for Teens

Are we treating our children the best way possible when it comes to dental appointments for the treatment of cavities? Is there a better way to prevent a lifelong fear of dental care?

Dental decay is currently the most common childhood illness, which causes detrimental effects to the child’s nutrition, growth, and development. Despite historic efforts and continued advances in preventive dental health, it still remains the number one childhood illness according to the Center for Disease Control. It far exceeds asthma, obesity, diabetes, heart problems, and other high profile diseases in children. It’s common occurrence is one of the reasons many people think tooth decay is no big deal.

What Is Used for Sedation Dentistry?

Simple oral sedatives are typically used in sedation dentistry. In all cases, sedation should help lower anxiety and help make the experience more palatable. Simple oral sedation can be especially helpful in situations where multiple treatments are required. All Smiles Care makes it easy for patients to schedule both treatments on the same day and go through them relatively painlessly, instead of making multiple appointments.

Simple oral sedatives are used to help alleviate anxiety and induce amnesia, so patients can’t remember the surgery or procedure. Oral sedatives are typically administered on the morning of the dental appointment for full efficacy. Dental sedation with simple oral sedatives helps patients deal with fear and anxiety before a procedure and, in some cases, can prevent PTSD resulting from a lengthy surgery.

Other common forms of sedation are available that require an injection beforehand. Sedatives that are taken intravenously before a dental surgery or procedure help alleviate anxiety, induce sleep, and prevent patients from remembering the event. These sedatives are also used for minor surgeries and other medical procedures.

All Smiles Care also offers neuro-acoustic software options. Neuro-acoustic software is a relatively new technology that revolutionizes sedation dentistry. This method of dental sedation relaxes the body and the mind without the use of sedative drugs. Neuro-acoustic software has been proven to relieve dental anxiety naturally. Within 3 to 4 minutes, the patient will feel calm and relaxed and ready for any dental procedure.

Is Sedation Dentistry More Expensive?

Sedation dentistry is not more expensive; you just have to pay for the service of sedation. Generally, dental sedation costs depend on several factors, including the method of sedation and how long the procedure takes. All Smiles Care is happy to provide an estimate for the cost of sedation during your next visit.

Using neuro-acoustic software is a cheaper alternative to oral sedatives and intravenous sedation methods. Starting at around $300, they are inexpensive compared to other forms of sedation dentistry. However, since it relies on software and technology to calm patients, its effects are psychological rather than physiological.
