Sedation Dentistry An Overview

Fear of the dentist can prevent you from taking good care of your oral health. Dental anxiety is a common issue that should not inhibit your ability to enjoy optimal oral wellness.

The Importance of Routine Dentistry

Avoiding the dentist can lead to the development of complex dental issues. Ignoring minor cosmetic blemishes such as chips or cracks often results in infection or the need for a tooth extraction, while leaving bleeding gums unattended may result in tooth loss, receding gums, or other systemic conditions such as heart disease.

Visiting the dentist for six-month dental checkups is ideal for catching developing dental concerns early. If you avoid dental exams due to dental anxiety, contact Dr. Robinson. In addition to providing patient education and attentive, personalized care, we also offer oral conscious sedation options. Oral conscious sedation works to help alleviate your anxiety so that you can receive the dental care you need.

Sedation Dentistry What to Expect

Patients who choose sedation dentistry will undergo a thorough oral health exam before administering any medication. Dr. Robinson will conduct a medical history evaluation and personalized consultation with the patient. He will then discuss all options and recommend which form of sedation dentistry is right for the patient’s needs and personal health.

  • Nitrous oxide- Nitrous oxide is a gas that is inhaled through a mask that fits over the nose. Nitrous oxide will help you feel almost instantly relaxed and calm while remaining alert and able to communicate. Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” can help you feel less anxious during your routine dental exams.
  • Oral sedation- Oral sedation is taken as a pill and provides a deeper state of relaxation than nitrous oxide. For some patients, Dr. Robinson may recommend a combination of the two treatments. Oral sedation is safe and effective. Patients will require a ride to and from the office as the effects can take several hours to wear off.

If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. Dr. Robinson and his compassionate staff help patients in our New Philadelphia, OH dentist office overcome their dental fear.

Maintaining your oral health and addressing dental concerns can help you enjoy a more fulfilling life. Contact our welcoming front desk team at (330) 969-6343 to request your sedation dentistry consultation.
