Benefits of AA Meds and Sedation
Regular dental visits and treatments are essential to maintaining your oral and overall health, however, dental phobia can stand in the way. In order to ensure our patients seek and receive the dental care they need, our anti-anxiety treatments help patients combat fears or conditions. Those who may benefit the most from our anti-anxiety medications and sedation are people with:
- Dental anxiety or fear of the dentist
- An overly-sensitive gag reflex
- Fear of needles
- Extreme tooth sensitivity
- Decreased sensitivity to anesthesia
- Difficulty controlling their movements
- Other physical, cognitive, and/or behavioral needs.
Anti-Anxiety & Sedation Treatments at Lakeview Dental Care
Prior to receiving any form of anti-anxiety medication or sedation, patients will first consult with our experienced team of dentists. In this consultation, be prepared to discuss any medical conditions you may have along with any prescription or over-the-counter medications you may use regularly.
Based on your consultation, our team will determine which treatment is best for you. Lakeview Dental Care offers a number of treatments to help you stay relaxed, which include:
Anti-Anxiety Medication helps our patients feel calm, cool, and collected during their dental procedure. Lakeview Dental Care can provide anti-anxiety medications that allow you to relax without losing consciousness; you will be able to respond to sound and touch throughout your treatment. These treatments are performed commonly with nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”. For an even stronger form of relaxation, oral anti-anxiety medication can be prescribed and administered.
In order to receive this treatment, you will need to be driven to and from your appointment.
In addition to anti-anxiety medication, Lakeview Dental Care offers sedation. This is also known as “sleep dentistry”. Partial or total loss of consciousness will occur with the help of this treatment. This makes great dentistry possible to those with even the most severe anxiety problems.
Like our anti-anxiety treatments, it is required for patients receiving moderate or full sedation to be driven to and from our office.
