The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Many people are uneasy about going to the dentist. The Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry in Lawrenceville sees patients who are even terrified of regular dental maintenance procedures like checkups and teeth cleanings. Dr. Nooredin Nurani, the dentist at The Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry who emphasizes in dental implants in Suwanee, Lawrenceville and Gwinnett County, says that many people choose to use sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is great for those who have had a previous bad experience, have a gag reflex, do not like needles or just need to have a lot of work at one time.
There are several types of sedation dentistry. The Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry uses oral conscious sedation, says Dr. Nurani, a dentist who serves Suwanee, Lawrenceville and Gwinnett County. This form of sedation is taken orally one hour before the appointment. Not only does the medication help you rest, but it also has an amnesia effect. This means that patients remember very little if anything of the visit. This makes it easier for them to overcome their anxieties about the dentist they visit. From simple teeth cleanings to full smile makeovers, Dr. Nurani says you can be sedated for just about any procedure.
Dr. Nurani says that only a small portion of the population is unaffected by sedation. Since everyone’s body chemistry is different, Dr. Nurani and his staff make sure that each patient is comfortable and ready to receive treatment. It is essential that the dentist who is administering sedation medication take the proper steps to ensure your safety.
The dental professionals at The Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry, an office with emphasis in cosmetic dentistry in Suwanee, Lawrenceville and Gwinnett County, ensure that while you are sedated not only will you be comfortable but your heart rate, oxygen levels and blood pressure are closely monitored.
It is important to communicate with the dentist if you are experiencing any discomfort. The dentist and his or her staff should make you feel comfortable at all points of your visit, from the time you enter to the time you leave.
