Dental care is an essential part of life.Pakistan Dental Association recommends people visit a dentist at least once in every 6 months to avoid dental problems. Most of the times it can be noted that people avoid visiting a dentist because of fear and discomfort. This fear of dental treatment is medically termed as dental phobia. It is commonly observed in people of all age groups. Sedation dentistry is a technique used to keep patients relaxed during dental treatment. The technique has been around for many years now.Our dental office has been helping out people with sedation dentistry in Lahore.
SEDATION DENTISTRY – HOW DOES IT WORK?
Sedation dentistry involves the use of chemical agents to make a person less responsive to external stimuli. Both conscious and unconscious sedation methods are available. Under conscious sedation, there are various stages starting from mild sedative to deep sedation where patients respond only to a repeated stimulus or painful stimulus. As a patient, you should express your concerns to our Anesthetist who will make a note of your medical history and prescribe a sedative based on your needs and the dental procedure. Our Anesthetist also provides pre and post-operative instructions to patients. A caretaker should observe the patient for few hours after the treatment.
