When is sedation dentistry the right choice? Why should I choose sedation dentistry? Is it really necessary? These are just a few of the most common questions we hear from Bergenfield-area patients who are considering sedation dentistry.
We welcome these questions and any others you might have. There's no doubt that the most important question for any patient is, simply, “Is this the right choice for me?”
At Oradell Family Dental, we have the tools and the experience to help you answer that question. In fact, we've been helping patients answer that question for decades now. And we know just how to help you find the right procedure for you.
When it comes to sedation dentistry, the best candidates are those who experience serious dental anxiety. This is different from nervousness before a procedure. Those with dental anxiety experience so much anxiousness (elevated heart rate, rapid breathing) at the thought of visiting the dentist's office that they are simply unable to do so. They go years without getting needed dental work, simply because they cannot convince themselves to visit the dentist.
The right candidates for sedation dentistry are also in good overall health and do not suffer from any active infections. It's also crucial that you reveal any allergies you might have, particularly to medications. We need to know as much as possible about your medical history.
Of course, we can't fully answer this question in a blog post. To find out if sedation dentistry is right for you, you need to visit our office for a consultation and examination.
If you suffer from severe dental anxiety in the Bergenfield, New Jersey area, sedation dentistry might be the right choice for you. To arrange a consultation, please call Oradell Family Dental today at 201-384-9292 today.
