Cosmetic dentist in Wake Forest area discusses sedation dentistry
Dr. Edmond Suh is a cosmetic dentist in the Wake Forest, NC area who understands that the idea of visiting the dental office can be an anxiety-ridden experience. Patients who have had bad experiences in the past or who are dealing with a negative connotation with sitting in the dental chair now have a way to seek effective treatment without having to deal with the nervous feelings they may struggle with each time they book an appointment. Whether patients are uneasy about having extensive dental work done or even get a knot in their stomach when they think about a simple cleaning, our team at Supremia Dentistry will be able to assist with the use of sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is a type of dentistry in which a dental team can help patients be at ease for their dental visit. Dr. Edmond Suh uses oral conscious sedation which is a special type of sedation that can work for many hours. This method uses an oral medication that can be used to make patients feel relaxed and comfortable, while allowing them full control of their body to speak and follow directions. Many patients who take this medication before their appointment arrive drowsy, which is why they are to arrange appropriate transportation to and from their visit.
Sedation dentistry allows patients to have a single treatment done or even several at one time without having to deal with the anxiety of sitting in the dental chair. Dr. Edmond Suh may suggest oral conscious sedation for patients who are not a good fit for—or for patients who are not responsive to—nitrous oxide sedation. Oral conscious sedation may be better for patients with more severe cases of anxiety. It can reduce gag reflexes, make time pass quickly, and allow patients the chance to rest after their appointment with minimal remembrance of their visit.
Dr. Edmond Suh and the team of Supremia Dentistry may recommend oral conscious sedation for patients who want to have a positive experience at the dental office.
