Fighting Dental Fear-A Cosmetic Dentist in Wilkes Barre Introduces Sedation Dentistry

“There are various types of sedation and each is administered depending on the severity of the dental condition and the invasiveness of the procedure required. For invasive procedures such as impacted wisdom tooth extraction, like the case of Gamache, intravenous (IV) sedation works better. It allows the body to relax but keeps it responsive to the verbal stimulation of a Wilkes Barre cosmetic dentist.

Because IV sedation works instantly, it offers a greater degree of control than pills, which need time to work through a patient’s system The cost of sedation depends on the form, and some insurers cover some forms. IV sedation goes into the hundreds of dollars.”
