Dental fear and anxiety are common among both adults and children due to the high intensity of pain associated with dental procedures. Fortunately, UK Dentistry offers a variety of services to help make dental visits more comfortable, including sedation dentistry and sleep dentistry. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of these services and how they can help make dental visits more pleasant. Sedation dentistry is a controversial topic due to doubts that have been raised about its safety, especially in dental offices. However, when administered by an experienced anesthesiologist, sedation can be a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety and pain during dental procedures.
The biggest challenge is sharing the airway between the anesthesiologist and the dentist. At Expressions Dental Care in Reston, Virginia, Dr. John Han and his team are experts in providing sedation dentistry services. They are thorough, pleasant and educational, making patients feel comfortable during their visit.
Depending on the patient's needs, treatment is offered by expert dentists from the faculty of the UK School of Dentistry, dentists who work in a resident clinic to complete their advanced studies, or dental students. Sleep dentistry is another service offered at UK Dentistry that can help make dental visits more comfortable. This type of sedation involves administering a combination of drugs that will put the patient into a deep sleep during the procedure. This allows the patient to remain relaxed and unaware of what is happening during the procedure. The benefits of sedation dentistry and sleep dentistry are numerous.
Not only do they help reduce anxiety and pain during dental procedures, but they also allow patients to remain relaxed and comfortable throughout their visit. Additionally, these services can help reduce recovery time after a procedure. At UK Dentistry, patients can rest assured that they will receive expert care from experienced professionals. Whether you need general or specialized dental treatment for adults or children, you can trust that you will receive quality care from Dr. Han and his team.
