How sedation dentistry from your dentist serving Athens and Huntsville can make life easierdental anxiety, sedation dentistry

If you are afraid of the dentist, you are not alone. Dental anxiety is a very common problem, and it can keep you from getting the dental care you need. You don’t have to let fear of dental treatment control your life. Dr. R. Brad Beasley at Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry wants to tell you more about sedation dentistry and how it can relieve your fears. He proudly serves the residents of Athens and Huntsville, AL and he can help you too.

Dental anxiety is the real deal. Don’t let anyone tell you it is “all in your head” because real physical issues can happen including an increased heart rate, sweating, trembling, hyperventilation, and other problems. People often become fearful of dental visits because they have:

  • A fear of needles
  • A history of bad dental experiences
  • Feelings of being vulnerable when leaned back in the dental chair
  • A dislike of smells, sounds, and sights within a dental office

At Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry, the office staff will make you comfortable with warm blankets and pleasant surroundings while you wait for the sedation to take effect. You will be carefully monitored the entire time to ensure a safe, relaxing visit. You can choose from several sedation methods, each offering its own benefits. For example:

  • Oral sedation, which is easy to administer and produces relaxation and a feeling of comfort; you may even sleep through your appointment.
  • Inhaled conscious sedation, which is inhaled through a nosepiece; containing a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen, the effects of inhaled sedation leave your body quickly.

Dr. Beasley may also suggest a combination of oral and inhaled sedation, depending on the level of sedation you wish.
