Sedation 'can help make dental care less stressful'
Updated: 9/23/2008 1:59:54 PM

Sedation Offering sedation dentistry is one way to make patients more relaxed about visiting the dentist, it has been claimed.

Approximately 145 million people say they are too afraid to visit the dentist, according to a report on Carolina Newswire.

This figure has led to an investigation by dental health professionals to determine how they can improve their patients' experience, thereby encouraging them to return more frequently.

Dr Robert Stanley of North Carolina's Stanley Dentistry explained that sedation helps him achieve this end.

"We're proud to offer sedation dentistry so that more people can now have their dental care accomplished while they are totally relaxed and absolutely comfortable," he commented.

He explained how sedation is yet another tool that he uses to "get the job done better and quicker" at his practice, adding that the technique helps "bridge the gap between technology and comfort."

In sedation dentistry, drugs are administered to a patient via an IV, inhalation, pills or a liquid to produce a calm and relaxed sensation. It may be offered as an alternative to general anesthesia.
