Sleep through your appointment worry free
Fear and anxiety cause about thirty to fifty percent of all people to avoid dental care, leading to serious dental problems, pain, and other health problems. Omaha sedation dentistry helps you relax and can increase the efficacy of local anesthesia, without requiring general anesthesia.
Nebraska sedation dentist Dr. Beninato offers sedation dentistry in Omaha to his patients to make the experience as pleasant and anxiety-free as possible.
Dental care does not have to be painful or frightening. Sedation dentistry puts you into a relaxed state. In this state, the local anesthetic we use to numb the area is more effective.
Anxiety and fear cause unnecessary pain.
Fear and anxiety cause you to tense up and strain during the procedure. When you do this, you will experience sore muscles and pain from the tension that may not be related to the dental work itself. Sedation dentistry prevents this extra, unneeded pain.
Sedation dentistry uses oral sedatives to help you relax, and can be used in conjunction with nitrous oxide. You will need someone to drive you to and from your office visit.
- We will give you a mild sedative to take the night before your procedure to prevent anxiety.
- You must avoid eating on the morning of your procedure.
- When you arrive we will provide oral sedatives appropriate for the length and extensiveness of the procedure.
- You will be partially awake and breathing on your own during the procedure; some patients are so relaxed they actually fall asleep.
- Do not drive for 24 hours.
Most patients have no memory of their procedure. Whether you have had a previous bad experience or simply fear you might have one, sedation dentistry can help you get past your fear, and get back on track with your dental care.
Omaha sedation dentistry is a great solution if you are resistant to numbing.
If you are extremely fearful or have difficulty sitting through an entire procedure for reasons such as strong gag reflex or TMD/TMJ, you may choose sleep dentistry over sedation dentistry. Sleep dentistry requires the attendance of an anesthesiologist. It can make dental care possible for those who believe they cannot tolerate any dental procedure. Please contact our office for more information about these options.
