Most dentists would agree that the best way to ensure good oral health for you and your family is to practice a daily brushing and flossing regimen and to visit your dentist regularly for dental exams and cleanings. That may sound simple, but for many people a trip to the dentist is terrifying. Because of intense fear, some patients postpone their trips to the dentist’s office or don’t go at all. This is never a good solution. You may be avoiding the thing you fear, but you’ll be doing it at the cost of your oral health. Fortunately, there is a solution for even the most fearful patient: sedation dentistry. Dr. Parma is pleased to offer several sedation methods to his San Antonio, TX, area patients.
What You Should Know about Sedation Dentistry
Thanks to modern dental technology, every patient can enjoy the benefits of good oral health without the anxiety that used to go along with trips to the dentist’s office. Sedation dentistry allows patients to:
- Feel relaxed and at ease during your dental visit
- Sit back and enjoy your favorite music on headphones
- Remember very little of your dental visit (if anything) and wake up feeling refreshed and calm
Sedation dentistry is safe and wears off quickly. Ask Dr. Parma which sedation method would be best for you or your family member.
The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Whatever your fear may be, you can’t let it rule your life. This is particularly important if you fear something that’s actually good for you – like visiting your doctor or dentist, for example. Postponing or canceling your regular exams and cleanings may compromise your oral health. And if you actually need to have any type of dental procedure performed, delaying it will only makes things worse. Fortunately, sedation dentistry methods can alleviate even the most intense anxiety in patients, and there are a variety of techniques from which to choose, so you and your family can enjoy good oral health by making sure that you visit your dentist’s office on a regular basis.
