Sedation dentists are in the news. West Haven and Milford CT residents might have even heard a few commercials on the radio about how sedation dentists, or sleep dentists, are helping millions of people who suffer from a debilitating fear of even a very gentle dentist. These people may have avoided going to the dentist for so many years that their mouths are fraught with problems and pain. Indeed, conscious sedation is a veritable boon to these folks, because it allows them to wipe away their anxiety so effectively that their former inability to walk into a dental office no longer stops them from getting the important dental work they need.
But what about the rest of us? What about those of us who may not like it, but we go to the dentist anyway? Yes, every six months we jump in the car and drive ourselves, and our children, over to the dentist for our regular checkup and whatever else needs to be done to keep our pearly whites just as bright and beautiful as they can possibly be. Can conscious sedation dentistry also help people who have no difficulty making it to their six month checkup? Everybody wants a stress-free dental experience, right?
Why you should give a sleep dentist a try
The answer is a resounding yes; everybody does want less stress and anxiety, and they want a gentle dentist. Think of it this way. Imagine for a second that you are living in a third world country, high in the midst of the Andes Mountains, where the weather and the water are quite cold. Unfortunately, because it just simply is not available in your area, you are forced every day to take a very cold shower. Of course, you know that taking a shower and being clean makes your quality of life exponentially better, so every morning you do it. Yes, you give the menacing showerhead a cold hard stare every morning, and you may hesitate a few seconds before subjecting yourself to that icy wake-up call, but nonetheless you take your shower. You try not to suffer.
Now, imagine for a second that a man comes to your door and offers to install a piping hot water heating system in your house for free! Are you going to say yes? Well, unless you are some kind of an East Indian aesthetic who has a spiritual motive for his freezing cold morning routine, it is likely you will agree to the hot water heater with gusto, simply because the idea of a warm and cozy hot shower is so irresistibly wonderful. And there you have it. Like a miracle, your new hot water heater turns your dreaded experience into one that is very enjoyable.
A sedation dentist is a gentle dentist
You can probably guess where all this is headed. With twilight sedation dentistry, your dental experience is transformed into a dream. Indeed, simply by taking a sedative pill, you can wipe away all the stress and fear that is simply not necessary in this day and age. In fact, one West Haven and Milford CT dentist, Dr. Joe Tartagni of at Shoreline Dental Care, is doing just that. Dr. Tartagni also utilizes laughing gas, known as nitrous oxide, to promote a deep feeling of relaxation during procedures without any kind of side effects.
What to expect with sedation dentistry
Well, with sedation dentistry, you might have one interesting side effect that most patients probably would not complain about. Although Dr. Tartagni performs what is called conscious sedation dentistry, many patients actually get so relaxed that they fall asleep like babies in his chair. The term sleep dentist is a misnomer and conscious sedation is a better way to describe the process. Another thing that often happens with sedation dentistry is a mild form of amnesia. Many patients do not even remember the majority of the procedure. Finally, sense of time for sedation dentistry patients is often altered so it feels like only an extremely short amount of time has passed during their treatment.
