Dublin, CA, dentist provides anxiety treatment options for nervous patients with sedation dentistry
At StarBrite Dental, Dublin, CA, patients have access to the dental care they need to achieve and maintain healthy smiles. However, many patients have dental anxieties that may keep them from visiting the dentist as they need. Drs. Munira Lokhandwala and Maryum Tariq are here to help! Our dentists offer a solution for nervous patients who might have anxiety about an upcoming treatment; oral conscious sedation.
What is oral conscious sedation?
Drs. Munira Lokhandwala and Maryum Tariq describe oral conscious sedation as a sedation dentistry method that reduces anxiety in patients who might fear the dental chair. Patients of all ages may exhibit anxiety about an upcoming visit, which can significantly impact their oral health. Patients with dental fears may avoid making necessary appointments with their dentist that can cause them to let cavities and gum disease go undetected and untreated until they become significantly problematic. With oral conscious sedation, patients take an oral prescription medication prior to their visit. They arrange for transportation to and from StarBrite Dental as they cannot drive while the medication is in their system. They arrive relaxed and calm for their appointment and undergo treatment with ease. After resting off the medication at home, patients often do not recall their appointment at all or have little recollection of their visit.
