Have anxiety about going to the dentist? Sedation dentistry is a painless solution. Dr. Rita Medwid is committed to making your dental experience peaceful and pleasant. As a sedation dentist, Dr. Medwid understands that dental phobia is a real and serious condition that keeps thousands of Americans from the oral healthcare they need. Our office was designed to provide comfort, peace of mind, and the latest dental innovations to patients of all ages. If you don’t respond well to dental anesthesia; if you suffer from stress, anxiety, or fear about dental visits; if you can’t sit comfortably in the dental chair for very long; or if you’d like extensive dental work completed quickly, consider sedation dentistry. Part of feeling confident comes from understanding what to expect.
Sedation Dentistry benefits patients with:
- High dental anxiety and fear
- A severe gag reflex
- Time constraints–those who need to get more dental work done in fewer visits
- Chronic or acute jaw soreness
- Physical limitations such as back and neck problems
- Difficult getting numb with local anesthesia
- Extensive treatment needs
- A desire to have dentistry done comfortably
What Exactly Does Sedation Dentistry Entail?
If you fear dental appointments, call your south Florida dentist to determine if sedation dentistry is available for you based on your medical history and current medications. If you’re a good candidate for oral sedation, the dentist will select an appropriate anti-anxiety or sedative drug for you to take at a pre-determined time before your appointment. These safe, widely-prescribed drugs diminish anxiety and help patients relax.
