Alleviating Anxiety with Safe, Comfortable Sedation Dentistry

*Actual PatientAlleviating Anxiety with Safe, Comfortable Sedation Dentistry

Fear of the dentist is common, but it needn’t prevent you from achieving a strong, healthy smile. Dr. Mitchell uses sedation dentistry to alleviate anxiety and promote a positive dental care experience. He offers oral conscious sedation as well as intravenous (IV) sedation. Both methods are safe, effective and have been used by millions of people to achieve strong, beautiful smiles. Come in for a consultation, and we’ll help you determine if sedation dentistry is right for you.

Oral Conscious Sedation

If you qualify for oral conscious sedation, Dr. Mitchell will prescribe a sedative for you to take prior to your appointment. You’ll feel groggy, so please have a friend or family member drive you to and from our office. After you enter a state of deep relaxation, Dr. Mitchell will perform your dental work and potentially reverse years of damage or neglect in a single visit. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, may be used to enhance sedation. Your oral conscious sedation will wear off gradually and leave you with only pleasant memories of your time with us.

IV Sedation

Dr. Mitchell may suggest IV sedation to ease apprehension and calm patients who require time-consuming treatments, have a sensitive gag reflex, or suffer from conditions that prevent them from holding their mouths open for long periods of time. Many people prefer IV sedation because they simply fall asleep prior to treatment and awaken with no memory of their procedures. We’ll tailor your level of sedation to your unique needs. Following treatment, you’ll emerge fully from your sedation but will need a friend or family member to drive you home.

Root Canal Therapy in Dallas, TX

January 18, 2016

 

*Actual Patient*

Has your dentist or endodontist told you that you need root canal treatment? If so, you’re not alone. Millions of teeth are treated and saved each year with root canal, or endodontic, treatment. Learn how root canal treatment can relieve your tooth pain and save your smile.

Your teeth contain several layers: the outer protective enamel, a secondary layer of sensitive dentin, and an inner pulp that contains components commonly referred to as the “nerve” of the tooth. Each pulp chamber branches off, forming canals that lead toward the tooth root tip. These infamous root canals provide a means for the tooth to absorb what it needs from the blood and get rid of toxins or other unnecessary materials via the blood stream. A deep cavity, traumatic injury, or tooth fracture can make the canal susceptible to bacterial infection, which can kill the pulp, stimulate increased blood flow, and create pressure within the tooth. This can cause severe tooth pain and may initiate bone degeneration, tooth loss, and even more acute pain. If you see a dentist in the earliest stages of this condition, the tooth may be saved with a root canal. Otherwise, it should be extracted and replaced with a prosthetic.

Will root canal therapy hurt? Not with today’s advanced analgesics and technology. In fact, the entire process can be so comfortable that many patients doze off. Oftentimes, root canal therapy can be completed in a single appointment. We simply clean out the diseased canal, fill it with a biologically-inert substance, seal it from further infection, and you’re on your way. While some patients experience post-procedural soreness or slight tissue inflammation, these are controllable with over-the-counter analgesics. Follow-up care involves thorough home hygiene and regular dental visits for cleanings and check ups.

If you fear going to the dentist, you are not alone. Between 9% and 20% of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of anxiety or fear. Indeed, it is a universal phenomenon.

Dental phobia is a more serious condition than anxiety. It leaves people panic-stricken and terrified. People with dental phobia have an awareness that the fear is totally irrational, but are unable to do much about it. They exhibit classic avoidance behavior; that is, they will do everything possible to avoid going to the dentist. People with dental phobia usually go to the dentist only when forced to do so by extreme pain. Pathologic anxiety or phobia may require psychiatric consultation in some cases.

Other signs of dental phobia include:

  • Trouble sleeping the night before the dental exam
  • Feelings of nervousness that escalate while in the dental office waiting room
  • Crying or feeling physically ill at the very thought of visiting the dentist
  • Intense uneasiness at the thought of, or actually when, objects are placed in your mouth during the dental treatment or suddenly feeling like it is difficult to breathe

Oral Conscious Sedation
