Dental Sedation During Periodontal Care

Unease about dental visits can lead to delays in care. When that care is needed for an active problem, like periodontal disease, the consequences can be serious. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can work with you to ensure that you have a better treatment experience. One way to provide this involves the offer of dental sedation. Sedatives provided during treatment allow you to remain conscious during your procedure but help you stay comfortable and relaxed. We should note that this is not all we can do to provide a better time for patients uneasy about oral health services. Thanks to our use of laser technology during appointments, we can make services more comfortable and conservative!

Discomfort Around Dental Work Can Lead To Delays In Important Care

If you let unease about smile care keep you from scheduling services, you can let problems worsen and become more severe. Letting poor periodontal health remain untreated can have serious consequences, as an infection can lead to problems with tissue damage that worsen until tooth loss results. You also need to worry about how bacteria on the roots of your spread can travel and create problems in other areas, which can have a significant effect on your health. Learning more about what care from a specialist can do for you, and how your time in the dentist’s chair can be made more comfortable, can help you commit to treatment.

Learning More About Your Options For Dental Sedation

There are different options for dental sedation that are available to you based on your needs and concerns about treatment. Both nitrous oxide and oral sedatives offer relief throughout care. With nitrous oxide, you can enjoy continued relief throughout your procedure, and the effects can fade quickly enough to let you safely return to your daily plans after your appointment. With an oral sedative, you can enjoy more potent relief, but the effects of this type of sedation last longer.

We Can Also Make Advanced Treatments More Comfortable By Using Laser Technology

Sedation is not all that we can offer to make your care easier. By providing care that relies on laser tools, we can make treatments that are more conservative by offering greater precision and more protection for surrounding tissues. This approach can also limit bleeding and remove the need for suturing to support healing.
