With literally hundreds of millions of people in the United States reporting that they get at least a little bit nervous about visiting the dentist – even for something as routine as a checkup or cleaning – it should come as no surprise to anyone that surgical procedures at the dental office bring about even more fear, even more anxiety, and even more stress.
Luckily though, with the help of modern medicine and research, there are more dental anesthetic options available now than ever before to help patients with fears and phobias overcome these challenges.
Sedation dentistry is very popular these days, and should you choose to take advantage of the services available at Estudillo Oral Surgery you’ll be able to rely on top-tier solutions to keep you safe, keep you stress-free, and to eliminate as much pain as humanly possible – both during and after your surgery.
COMMON DENTAL ANESTHETIC OPTIONS
There are a variety of different dental anesthetic options available to take advantage of, ranging from local anesthesia like Novocain that is injected directly into the surgical area all the way up to IV and general sedation anesthesia options that “put you under”.
Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a very popular form of dental anesthesia as well. This allows for a semi-conscious state during the entire procedure, but one that is going to be free of pain and incredibly relaxing – with the added benefit of the effects of this sedation wearing off very quickly.
IV and deep sedation options are best leveraged by those that suffer from serious dental fears and dental phobias as well as surgical procedures performed at Estudillo Oral Surgery that necessitate the patient being unconscious during the process.
