Sedation Dentistry

CarolinasDentist Provides the Relief of Sedation Dentistry

You’re bound to find that with any oral surgery, there’s the possibility that you may have some discomfort during your procedure. That’s just part of the territory when treating some dental problems. And that’s where a good bit of our behind-the-scenes work starts. Because at CarolinasDentist, we fully understand that dental anxiety can become an obstacle to taking good care of your teeth. More than 20 percent of people skip their dental appointments because they have some level of fear about going to the dentist. We don’t want that to happen to you. So, we employ everything that modern dentistry has to offer, including the best, most effective solutions for finding peace of mind in the dental chair. Sedation dentistry is just one of those options for easing your dental anxiety.

Procedures such as dental implants normally cause some discomfort. Anesthesia and patient sedation are commonly administered to help relieve any discomfort during the dental implant process. Most of our patients report that they are more comfortable after the procedure than they’d expected. Your dentist will prescribe medications to ease any discomfort that may occur after your procedure. Typically, a procedure will be performed under local anesthetic, unless another type of sedation is preferred. We will meet with you to discuss your options.

The benefits of sedation therapy include:

It starts working almost immediately, and you feel minimal to no pain throughout your procedure

It creates a period of amnesia, so you won't remember the procedure at all when you wake up

It allows you to cooperate for a period of time that allows your dentist and their team to expertly perform your procedure

All that being said, let’s get into why gentle dentistry is so important to sedation dentistry.

Our Trusted Brand of Gentle Dentistry

It’s said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is truly the case when it comes to your oral health, especially when dental sedation comes into play. (Remember, even if you don’t have any pressing dental concerns, you should still visit our dental team for professional teeth cleanings and exams every six months so we can make sure everything is in tip-top shape. That way, we can deal with problems—like cavities and gum disease—while they’re still small.)

It’s during these visits that we are more likely to discover a potential dental problem. Typically, we evaluate your overall oral health; take X-rays to detect issues; remove stains, plaque, and tartar; polish your teeth; and provide an oral cancer screening. We use an ultrasonic scaler that sprays away debris from teeth, which is a big improvement upon the uncomfortable scraping of traditional tools. We are also happy to give you pointers for at-home oral care.

Once an issue is discovered, we’ll meet to craft your ideal, personalized preventive oral health program that includes oral sedation dentistry. We take these steps to save you time, stress and money by utilizing preventive care that keeps problems from occurring or stops them in their tracks altogether. Our variety of hygiene services will keep your teeth and gums healthy and limit your risk of future problems.
