What your dentist in Huntsville wants you to know

If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. It is a common problem and can be based on a number of factors, including a bad past experience or just the sights and sounds of the dental office. Whatever the reason is, dental fear is a very real problem, but fortunately, sedation dentistry can help. Dr. R. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry in Huntsville, AL wants to share his knowledge of sedation dentistry and how it can help you.

There are many advantages to sedation dentistry and ways it can help you. When you choose sedation dentistry, your dental appointment will be:

  • Comfortable, because medications help you relax and make you calm
  • Pain-free, you will be drowsy and won’t remember your appointment
  • Productive, because your dentist can get more treatment completed in fewer appointments

If you choose to be sedated for dental treatment, you will be given a medication in the form of a pill. You will take this medication about an hour before dental treatment, to give it time to take effect. It is vitally important you have someone with you to drive you to your appointment and bring you home after your appointment.

When you arrive at Dr. Beasley’s office in Huntsville, you will be seated in a special room and covered with warm blankets. The expert staff in Huntsville will monitor your vital signs and make sure you are comfortable throughout your visit.

Once your treatment is about to begin, Dr. Beasley will usually increase your level of sedation by using nitrous oxide. You will wear a nosepiece and breathe a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen which flows out of the nosepiece.

Sedation treatment is the safe, effective way to conquer your dental fear and have a productive dental visit. You can get your much-needed dental work completed in a stress-free, pain-free, relaxing environment.

Sedation dentistry can help you discover that you can relax during your dental visit. Don’t let your dental fears keep you from having a great smile. Call Dr. Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry in Huntsville, AL. He can help you overcome your dental fears, so call today!
