Sedation Dentist Cary

Sometimes, some patients are very afraid of needles or the dental chair. These types of dental anxieties can make even the simplest dental procedures seem like torture. Due to the advances in modern dental medicine, dentists such as Dr. McMillan of Holistic Dental Centers can now help patients undergo most dental procedures and treatments without pain, discomfort, or anxiety. With oral sedation methods, Dr. McMillan can allow patients to achieve the beautiful results they’ve wanted from dental treatments without the fearful associations.

Sedation Dentist Cary, NC

Dr. McMillan may recommend oral sedation for those patients whose treatment will last a long period of time. He also uses this on patients who suffer from various types of dental anxieties and phobias, as well as those who have restrictions in controlling their movements, such as children or those with medical disorders. Even though many think that oral sedation refers to rendering a patient unconscious, that is not the case. Your dentist will merely use it to help you cope with any anxieties and worries, or to put you into a relaxed condition during the procedure.

Oral conscious sedation requires that a patient obtains a prescription medication. This pill is taken approximately one hour before your dental appointment. A friend or family member should be scheduled to provide transportation to Holistic Dental Centers for your appointment. You will be completely conscious during the oral sedation. You can answer questions and interact with your dentist. However, you will be calm and comfortable. After your treatment has been completed, you will then be transported back home to rest. When you awaken later, you will have no recollection of the appointment and will have your dental needs attended to! This is a great way to get your dental concerns addressed while maintaining a sense of calm and relaxation. Patients that have oral conscious sedation done will find that they begin to have a more positive experience with their dentist and the staff at Holistic Dental Centers.

This form of sedation can be used for a number of reasons. While primarily it is used for patients who are scared and fearful, it can also be used on patients who have a large number of procedures to do in one appointment, reduce sensitivity of the teeth, and can even help for those with a strong gag reflex. Patients will consult with Dr. McMillan before their appointment to discuss the reasons for oral sedation.

If you consult Dr. McMillan, you will never have to worry about any anxieties or worries. Consult him today and live your life to the fullest!
