Dr. Christopher Emuedue and his staff have seen many patients struggle with some degree of dental anxiety. The fear that arises for these patients with any dental appointment may be caused by a previous negative experience during a dental procedure. Other patients have a sensitive gag reflex that always makes dental work dreadful. Whatever the cause, our office offers anxiolysis to relax nervous patients and ease fears so necessary dental work is not delayed.
Anxiolysis is administered by taking a pill orally before the appointment. The medication is a light sedative, such as valium. It will relax a patient during a procedure but still allow the patient to drive themselves home after the appointment. This sedation option is recommended for those with mild to moderate anxiety. The important thing is that our patients do not put off necessary dental work and expose themselves to further risk because of an anxiety.
