Sedation dentistry services allow patients in Quincy, MA to overcome dental fear and anxiety
Many adults in the area of Quincy, MA, do not receive proper dental care regularly. Why? Because they have dental fear and anxiety. It can be difficult for patients to overcome these anxieties, but with the help of Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, patients can enjoy their next dental visit and feel at ease before and during their appointment. With oral conscious sedation, patients can have many dental services performed while relaxed and comfortable.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is the ability to have a dental appointment completed with proper sedatives to make patients feel at ease and reduce nervousness. Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and his team in Quincy, MA, ensure patients have solutions for their next visit. His team focuses on the use of oral conscious sedation, a method of sedation that requires patients to take prescription medication before arriving at the dental office. This sedative does not make patients fall asleep. Instead, it can make patients feel calm, though in a situation where they can follow instructions and answer questions with their dental team.
What are the benefits of oral conscious sedation?
This method of sedation is advantageous to our patients because it is:
- Easy to use
What should I know about this method of sedation?
The most important element of oral conscious sedation is that patients need to arrange transportation to and from their dental appointment. It is unsafe for patients to drive while this mediation is in their system, so arranging drop off and pickup to and from the dental office is necessary. Additionally, we provide patients with printed aftercare instructions so they can effectively heal from any procedure they may have had performed. Oral conscious sedation can be used for all dental appointments, even routine cleanings, and examinations depending on the patient’s anxiety levels.
