Handling Dental Anxiety with the Help of Scranton Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety can be overcome through various means like establishing trust with the patient and a more open doctor-patient communication—a process that may take a while. Hence, for dental emergencies, a number of patients opt to be put under sedation. Fortunately, there are dental practices that offer sedation dentistry in Scranton, PA like Back Mountain Dental and they can assure that the patient’s visit to the dentist would be as relaxed as possible.

Sedation can be applied in different ways and can have varying affects. IV sedation is one of the more popular methods used for sedation dentistry, though it can have a higher price tag than other options. It involves intravenously injecting the sedative into the patient; it doesn’t actually make the patient completely unconscious, though. You’ll feel sleepy, but you will be conscious enough to follow instructions.
