What are the benefits of sedation dental treatment in Wake Forest, NC?
Patients in the Wake Forest, NC area who are concerned about visiting the dentist because of anxiety are encouraged to take the time to connect with Dr. Edmond Suh of Supremia Dentistry to ask about the benefits of using oral conscious sedation services with any dental treatment in our practice. Whether you are interested in sedation for extensive procedures or simple cleanings and examinations, we can assist.
What is oral conscious sedation?
Oral conscious sedation is a method of relaxing a patient prior to their appointment and during their dental procedures. This option is achieved with the use of a medication that is taken orally before an appointment. It allows patients to feel at ease before they are even transported to the dental office. The medication continues to work throughout the visit. Patients return to their house to rest following their appointment, and many awaken with little to no recollection of their dental treatment. This makes it the ideal way for patients to undergo dental work without dental anxieties.
Why choose oral conscious sedation?
Oral conscious sedation is often chosen by our patients because it is:
- Simple to use
- Fast working
- Long lasting
- Free from side effects
How does oral conscious sedation work?
Oral conscious sedation is the use of an anti-anxiety medication that provides patients with the opportunity to feel relaxed even if they have dental anxieties. Anxiety can keep individuals from getting the dental care they require to achieve and maintain their oral health and wellness. Prior to the appointment, patients pick up their prescription medication. This medication is taken before the appointment. Patients need to arrange transportation to and from the dental appointment because they are not recommended to drive while under this medication. Once patients arrive at the dental office, they are comfortable, at ease, and yet conscious. Patients using oral conscious sedation can follow directions, answer questions, and even use the bathroom. However, they are completely relaxed and can get through the dental visits without feeling nervous or scared. After the appointment is completed, patients are transported home where they can rest. The entire process ensures patients get the dental care they need without anxieties.
What treatments can oral conscious sedation be used for?
Patients can use oral conscious sedation for any procedure or treatment in the dental office – including cleanings and examinations. We do not judge patients who have dental anxieties. Instead, we work with them to ensure they are comfortable and have a positive experience at the dental office. When patients enjoy their visits, they are more likely to schedule their routine appointments with the team at Supremia Dentistry, which improves their oral health and wellness. Cleanings, examinations, and other treatments need to be performed regularly to ensure the teeth and gums are healthy and free from problems such as gum disease and dental decay. Some patients may also utilize oral conscious sedation if they are undergoing extensive or long treatments, including full mouth restoration to ensure they are comfortable in the dental chair for extended periods of time.
Is oral conscious sedation affordable?
Dr. Edmond Suh finds that many of our patients can achieve relaxation with oral conscious sedation. It is an affordable solution for individuals who struggle with getting to the dental appointment for necessary services. It can be used for all adult patients. However, it is important for patients to know that many times, oral conscious sedation is not covered by dental insurance and is often an out-of-pocket expense.
