Brits could benefit from sedation dentistry.
There are presently two forms of sedation dentistry, conscious sedation and sleep dentistry, and each can help people who have chronic pain issues regarding their teeth and who need extensive or multiple procedures carried out in a single sitting, according to cosmetic dentist Dr Scott Greenhalgh.
“Many patients are astounded at how much dental work can be accomplished in a seemingly short period of time. You will wake up the next day feeling great and with the smile of your dreams,” he stated.
Dr Greenhalgh added that people should be aware they will have to make arrangements to get home after their procedures as they may well be “out of it” for a while.
Indeed, New Jersey dentist Dr Sultan Sherzoy said that up to 30 per cent of people who undergo treatments are afraid of anaesthesia and this can result in them putting off visiting their dentist.
