Sedation Dentistry Eugene, OR
If you become afraid or anxious when visiting the dentist, you are not alone. Millions of Americans have dental-related phobias. Some people even allow these phobias to prevent them from receiving the dental care they need to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. At College Hill Dental, we want our patients to have a comfortable and enjoyable experience. For patients who suffer from moderate to extreme anxiety, this may include sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry, ranging from nitrous oxide to general anesthesia, is designed to relax a patient during otherwise uncomfortable appointments.
Are You a Candidate for Sedation?
There are several factors that can affect whether or not sedation dentistry is right for you, including your overall health, and any mental or physical ailments. We may also ask you to receive clearance from a general physician if you suffer from cardiac disease, hypertension, diabetes, and other systemic illnesses.
Dr. Paskalev will perform a comprehensive exam to ensure you are a suitable candidate. This includes a detailed look at your medical and dental records. Be sure to ask any questions and voice any concerns before we proceed with sedation. We want you to feel comfortable with the process.
Patients with extreme anxiety are likely to benefit most from sedation dentistry. If you find yourself afraid to visit out office, this may be the route for you. Do not neglect your oral health. This can lead to much more serious complications later down the line.
