Few people enjoygoing to the dentist. Many people are so fearful or anxious about visiting the dentist that they let their oral health suffer as a result. It is important to see a dentist regularly so we can treat problems before they become larger and become painful, irreversible or expensive.
With modern dentistry, there are many techniques and methods that we use to help overcome your anxieties and make your dental experience comfortable.
Dental Clinic Medident has decades of experience of dental fear, and we have invested in pain-free dental care and patient-centered care.
First visit will focus on the patient’s wishes and needs and describition of treatment options. It is good to remember that the most common reason for dental fear is the lack of information. Together with the patient we choose the method to achieve apainless and comfortable treatment experience.
With modern local anesthetics it is possible to achieve asecure painless numbness. Positive treatment experience is significantly affected by relaxing and unhurried atmosphere.
In Medident you can overcome your fears with relaxation or sedation. Our dentists are very understanding about your feelings, and they do all they can to make you feel more comfortable. We offer various techniques to help yourtreatment pass with as little stress as possible.
We sometimes recommend intravenous or IV sedation. This is given by injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm. The dose will depend on the amount of treatment you need, and how long it will take to complete.
The injection you get from the doctor will make you feel drowsy and unaware of any treatment that is going on, but you will still be able to cooperate with the dentist.
General anesthesia is a good option, if the dental fear is insurmountable. In this case, also extensive treatments can be carried out during one appointment andmake the treatment comfortable. In Medident general anesthesia is performed by experienced anesthesiologist.
