Are you or a family member apprehensive 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 completed?
If your past or current situation is causing a lot of uneasiness, there are options available to reduce your fear and reduce (or completely eliminate) your pain with the necessary services. Oral sedation (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless Cincinnati 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 sleep dentistry, call Endres Gateway Dentistry at 513-791-8880 to schedule a no-pressure consultation. Doctor Endres will explain your sedation options and answer any questions. If you elect sedation, Doctor Endres will refer you to a specialist if necessary (depending on the type of sedation used).
It is critical 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 bring a feeling of peace and relaxation. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are calm but still awake, or choose 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, Doctor Endres will proceed with patience and understanding. Oral sedation assists with making your dental visit serene so you can treat all of your dental issues and restore your health. Taking care of tooth decay, infections, and other serious problems brings peace of mind and reduces the risk of further damage including tooth loss.
