Are you or a family member anxious about going to the dentist? Has a past experience with pain or discomfort caused you to start panicking when you think about having your teeth worked on? Have you neglected going to the dentist and fear the amount of work that might need to be handled?
If your past or current situation is causing a lot of nervousness, there are options available to ease your fear and reduce (or completely eliminate) your pain with the necessary care. Oral sedation (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless Toms River dental patients calmly undergo dental treatment. It is not an experimental procedure but has been used safely in various forms since the 1800s.
To discuss sedation dentistry, call Rotem Dental Care at 732-341-8500 to schedule a no-pressure consultation. Dr. Rotem will explain your sedation options and answer any questions. If you pick sedation, Dr. Rotem will refer you to a specialist if necessary (depending on the type of sedation used).
It is essential to understand the difference between topical analgesics and sedation which are used both alone and simultaneously. Analgesics help numb the gums and nerves connected with your teeth so you don’t feel the pain. Sedation medications affect the nervous system and transfer a feeling of peace and relaxation. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are calm but still awake, or decide on general anesthesia which renders you completely unconscious. Together, these two solutions dramatically improve the treatment experience for patients suffering from dental anxiety, a very common condition.
Regardless of the type and level of sedation you decide to use, Dr. Rotem will proceed with patience and understanding. Oral sedation aids in making your dental visit peaceful so you can treat all of your dental issues and restore your health. Taking care of cavities, infections, and other serious problems brings peace of mind and reduces the risk of further damage including tooth loss.
