Conscious sedation ‘eliminates stress’
People could reduce their stress by having conscious sedation in place of anaesthesia.
According to Dr Sultan Sherzoy, a dentist from New Jersey, 30 per cent of people who undergo treatments are afraid of anaesthesia and this can result in them putting off visiting their dentist and any problems they have with their teeth getting worse.
However, there is a solution to this issue, he claimed, sedation dentistry, which is where a person is given a pill to put them almost out, but not quite.
Dr Sherzoy argued: “The amazing thing about this is that unlike anaesthesia where a patient is completely unconscious, asleep or unable to respond, patients under conscious sedation are able to respond to commands and breathe on their own.”
Elsewhere, news provider Oromo Index recently reported that there are a range of options available to those looking to sharpen up their smile. These include contouring or reshaping of misshapen teeth, teeth whitening treatments, bonding, dental veneers, bridges and gum lifts.
