Dr. Susan Pearson Talks About The Advantages Of Anxiety-free Dentistry
Silver Spring, MD Ė It's not easy managing anxiety-it sneaks up on a person when he/she least expects it. And a person's level of anxiety may go up when a dental appointment is down the road.
To help patients reign in their anxiety, Dr. Pearson provides oral conscious sedation.
"Conquering fears is a difficult task. We are helping our patients find relief from anxiety by offering oral conscious sedation. It's a safe and effective way of treating dental anxiety," explains Dr. Pearson, Silver Spring dentist.
What is oral conscious sedation? Oral sedation is administered in pill form, and it ranges from minimal to moderate sedation, so the patient can remain aware but feel relaxed. That's where the "conscious" comes from.
The patient's ability to relax while also remaining aware in the dental chair is the biggest benefit thus far. Patients may feel groggy while under oral conscious sedation, but they can easily follow instructions given by the dentist or a member of the dental staff.
How has anxiety-free dentistry in Silver Spring helped Dr. Pearson?
"With the help of anxiety-free dentistry, more patients are willing to visit the dentist office to treat tooth decay, gum disease and plaque bacteria. Without professional care, the slightest sign of decay can make a patient's oral health decline quite fast. We just make recommendations that will better their oral health. It's a patient's decision on whether or not to move forward with a treatment or procedure," says Dr. Pearson.
Anxiety-free dentistry is an option for any patient who wants treatment but is unable to shake worrisome nerves.
