It is not unusual for people to be anxious about visiting the dentist. You may have learned nervousness from your parents, or you may have had negative experiences with old-fashioned dentists. You know that you need dental treatment, but you feel too afraid to take the right steps to get that treatment, and it may have started to affect your health. If you decide that you want to visit the dentist, and need to be sedated to do so, then you should start looking for a specialist sedation dentist in Los Angeles.
A Fear of Needles
In the past, the most common type of sedation for dental patients was Novocain, the drug injected into the mouth to numb the area prior to surgery. When Novocain is used correctly, the patient feels nothing but is still awake and aware of their surroundings, which may cause them anxiety if they are afraid of visiting the dentist. Others may have experienced anxiety concerning the use of needles, which can lead them to be nervous when Novocain is used. As an alternative, you may need a better sedation treatment.
We know that most people will prefer not to use Novocain and would instead like a sedation that relaxes you and makes you less aware of your surroundings. While you may still be conscious of the treatment, you will be unaware of what is happening. This not only reduces the pain of the dental surgery but also helps remove the fear of that treatment. This is why we recommend that our patients have dental sedation and avoid the problems of anxiety over needles or fear of the treatment itself.
