For any patient waiting for a dental surgery of any scale, fear and anxiety are sure agents to swallow the mind and hence complicating the job for both dentist and the patient himself. Sedation Dentistry provides a genuine solution by removing that fear out of the equation.
Much has been spoken about sedation dentistry – both against and for. While dentists and a considerable amount of patients see sedation as a relieving idea to the dental fear while certain group of people question the ethical values of sedation dentistry. Holistic Dentistry Melbourne saw a need to analyse the cons and pros of sedation dentistry, try its techniques and find out the side effects. It feels the weight falls more towards sedation during oral surgery than against it.
Of many misconceptions about sedation dentistry floating in seeker’s minds, the misinformation that sedation dentistry involves general anesthesia seems to be the major cause of the questions the learned conscious community wants to pose. Contrastingly, sedation dentistry involves conscious sedation – only a part of the body losing its sense.
During a post-surgery analysis conducted at Holistic Dentistry Melbourne over several weeks involving near-hundred patients, many have reported a positive response to sedation dentistry and the responses included some patients who could recall the exact words the doctor uttered during the surgery. 60% of the people were reported to have less or no side effects where nitrous was used as sedation drug. The data only further proves the essentiality of patient-friendly techniques of treatment. During the study it was observed that patients felt the surgical process took ten to fifteen minutes while the process had taken hours in real time.
Sedation during oral surgery helps both the doctor and the patient. Patient can let go of his fears and irritations of surgical instruments caressing his oral cavity while doctors will have a wider scope for preciseness in surgery as patient’s pain factor is not a matter of worry.
Science was invented to ease the human perils, and fear – of any sort – being one of them, making oneself unaware of fear instills in oneself a hopeful psyche. In this case helps the patient get himself a painless surgery. Holistic Dentistry Melbourne takes special efforts in ensuring that patient takes a smiling ushering to the surgical bed.
