Chicago Sedation Dentist Calms Dental Fears Chicago Bucktown Dentist installs state- of- the- art sedation equipment to help patients with fear and anxiety. Dental sedation enables individuals too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need. Chicago (I- Newswire) October 05, 2012 - An unfortunate side effect of dental phobia is an unhealthy mouth and an unhealthy body. We see patients with dental fears nearly every day, Says Dr. Elseweifi of url:http:// www.bucktowndentalassociates.com] Bucktown Dental Associates [/ url] . Millions of Americans avoid the dentist. Some had traumatic experiences as children. Others suffered pain as adults. Dental sedation can offer those patients a range of comfortable and relaxing options! Patients how have fear or anxiety of dental treatment would be happy to know that years of dental problems can be corrected in just one or two visits with sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry includes nitrous oxide analgesia and the use of sedative medications. Nitrous oxide analgesia, commonly known as laughing gas, is used to decrease the pain and anxiety associated with dental treatment. The effect of nitrous oxide is often remarkable. A patient that was anxious just a minute or two before treatment will become relaxed and calm. It is delivered by a nasal mask in combination with oxygen. Nitrous oxide is very useful for children to increase analgesia, relaxation, and cooperation. Nitrous oxide is also very useful for patients who gag easily. With oral sedation, the patient takes anti- anxiety medication by mouth, usually an hour before treatment. The medication induces relaxation but the patient stays fully alert and able to respond to questions. Best of all, the medications create such a comfortable experience that most patients do not remember the visit. The dentist may also prescribe anti- anxiety or a sleeping pill the night before the appointment, an hour before going to bed. This can help with falling asleep and getting some rest. During dental sedation, the patient's vital signs are monitored closely. These include pulse, blood pressure, and oxygen concentration in blood. In some cases, an EKG is recorded during dental sedation. The sedation dentist should be certified in advanced cardiac life support for both adults and children. Dr. Elseweifi uses state- of- the- art monitoring technology to keep patients safe during sedation. One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Therefore, complex dental procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments. Because dental sedation addresses some of the fears that keep people from going to the dentist on a regular basis, sedation dentistry patients are more likely to receive recommended routine care. Sedation dentistry is used to provide a relaxing and anxiety- free experience for people receiving dental treatment. It enables individuals too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need.
