Will new procedure help people afraid of emergency dentistry?


Emergency dentistry may soon be nothing to fear.A new procedure could help people who need treatment on their teeth but who are afraid of getting emergency dentistry.

Some professionals are now introducing so-called sleep dentistry in order to pacify their patients and make it easier for them to deal with their time in the chair, the Daily Planet Dispatch reports.

It involves the use of strong sedatives and local anaesthetics to create a dreamlike state that the patient will barely even remember afterwards.

However, it does not have the long recovery time or cause the inconvenience that a general anaesthetic would, because it wears off like a local.

Although many people have praised this as a way of reducing dental anxiety, some professionals have expressed concerns that improperly trained individuals may begin to administer the drugs.

Australia will introduce regulations governing sleep dentistry in July 2011 to get over this problem.

In November 2010, scientists at Kings College, Brunel University and the London South Bank University invented a device which cancels out the noise of the dentist's drill.

Sedation dentistry provides benefits


Brits could benefit from sedation dentistry.

Individuals who have high levels of anxiety in regard to dentistry procedures could benefit from embracing sedation procedures.

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.
