Are you or a family member nervous 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 performed?
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 Fort Worth 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 The Parkway Dentist at 469-949-8707 to schedule a no-pressure consultation. Dr. Cook will explain your sedation options and answer any questions. If you choose sedation, Dr. Cook will refer you to a specialist if necessary (depending on the type of sedation used).
It is vital 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 deliver a feeling of peace and relaxation. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are quiet 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, Dr. Cook will proceed with patience and understanding. Oral sedation assists with making your dental visit comfortable so you can treat all of your dental dilemmas 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.
