Taking your periodontal health seriously is important. Without the proper support, you are vulnerable to the serious problems that an infection can cause, including tooth loss and interference with your general health. Unfortunately, there are different reasons why people hesitate before scheduling treatment, one of which is discomfort around dental work. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we provide advanced services to resolve health problems that affect your gums, and we take care to provide patients with positive experiences in our office. One way we do this is by providing sedation to help patients remain relaxed and comfortable. We also provide better experiences by offering both holistic treatment options and services that use laser technology instead of manual tools.
Are You Concerned About Discomfort During A Procedure?
Dental anxiety and worries about discomfort during a specific procedure can interfere with plans to schedule treatment even when an oral health problem is serious. For individuals who put off services to address periodontal disease, postponing or bypassing care can lead to alarming complications, which can include problems like tooth loss and interference with your general health. The good news is that there are several actions we can take to make your experience easier, including support with a sedative to help you feel at ease during treatment.
How Dental Sedation Makes Treatments More Comfortable
Through the use of dental sedation, we can help patients who need longer or more involved services, or those who have anxiety about treatment. We understand that people experience different degrees of discomfort, and we can provide different types of sedation to make sure you have the right support. By providing nitrous oxide, sometimes known as laughing gas, during your appointment, we can help you stay relaxed. An advantage to this approach is that the effects can fade quickly, making it possible for you to return to your day without issue. Another approach is to provide an oral sedative, which can offer a stronger effect. However, it can make it necessary for you to receive a ride to and from your appointment.
How Lasers And Holistic Treatment Options Improve The Patient Experience
With both laser periodontal treatments and the use of services that encourage holistic recovery, we can provide better experiences in the office. Lasers minimize bleeding and eliminate the need for suturing when we treat infected tissues. With services like ozone therapy and PRP therapy, we can encourage natural recovery and safely fight harmful bacteria that are causing issues for your well-being.
