Dr. Sands puts anxious patients at ease, with sedation dentistry services
Beverly HIlls, CA, United States (pr4links.com) 17/11/2013
While many people love the feeling of leaving the dentist's office with clean, healthy teeth-others associate dental visits with feelings of pain and anxiety. However, avoiding dental treatments out of fear will not help; and avoiding treatment may cause existing dental issues to become even worse. Beverly Hills dentist Dr. Kevin Sands offers sedation dentistry services, ensuring that phobic patients receive proper dental care.

Dr. Sands says that sedation dentistry simply refers to the use of mild sedatives, which are administered to help patients relax during a dental procedure. Dr. Sands offers a variety of anesthetic options, which may vary depending on what treatment a patient is receiving, as well as that patient's preference. He adds that nearly anyone who has a fear of dental tools or treatments is a good candidate.

Typically, Dr. Sands explains, sedation dentistry includes oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide sedation, or Intravenous (IV) Sedation. With oral conscious sedation, patients take a small, prescription pill prior to their appointment. The pill will leave the patient alert during treatment, but will relax them enough so that getting through the treatment process will not be a problem. The effects of oral conscious sedation generally last several hours following the procedure.

Nitrous oxide sedation is more commonly known as "laughing gas" according to Dr. Sands. Nitrous oxide sedation is quite mild, and keeps the patient extremely relaxed, though alert, during the procedure. Dr. Sands says that this is an extremely common in dentistry. The effect of nitrous oxide sedation wears off almost immediately after treatment. Finally, IV sedation administers sedatives through the veins. This treatment is usually reserved for the most anxious patients. Like with other forms of sedation dentistry, IV sedation allows patients to completely relax during treatment, though they will still be able to respond to verbal cues from the dentist. Patients who have received IV sedation will usually need 24 hours to completely recover from the sedation effects after treatment.

According to Dr. Sands, there are numerous benefits to sedation dentistry. For extremely anxious patients, this is the only way they can get dental care. Using sedation dentistry, patients are able to receive care in complete comfort, without any pain. Dr. Sands adds that sedation dentistry benefits the dentist as well as the patient, since the dentist can complete multiple treatments in one visit, with the patient under sedation. Dr. Sands adds that nearly anyone who has a fear of dental tools or treatments, or who needs extensive dental work done, is a good candidate for sedation dentistry.

Dr. Sands offers a full-range of cosmetic and general dentistry services, including Lumineers, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and dental implants. Interested parties are encouraged to learn more at http://www.smilesofbeverlyhills.com.
