People with dental anxiety may avoid seeking dental care altogether, leading to deterioration of oral health and the exacerbation of dental problems. However, there are several strategies and techniques that can help individuals manage dental anxiety.

Advance Dental Aesthetics can provide Intravenous (IV) sedation. This type of sedation commonly used in dentistry and minor surgeries. It involves administering sedative drugs directly into the bloodstream through a vein, typically in the arm or hand by a qualified registered dental professional. Dr Sinthu is our own onsite dental sedationist.

IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and drowsiness, allowing patients to remain conscious but deeply relaxed during the procedure. It can also cause partial or complete memory loss of the procedure, which can be beneficial for patients who experience anxiety or fear during medical procedures.

The level of sedation can be adjusted by the healthcare provider administering the drugs, ensuring that the patient remains comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure. IV sedation is often preferred for procedures that are more invasive or lengthy.

It’s important for individuals experiencing dental anxiety to seek support from a compassionate dental provider who understands their concerns and is willing to work with them to find strategies that help manage anxiety and improve oral health. Early intervention and regular dental visits can also help prevent dental problems from worsening and reduce the need for more invasive treatments in the future.
