Traditionally, if you did not have sufficient bone mass in your jaws, the only option was bone graft surgery to regenerate and enough bone mass to create a sufficient foundation for traditional dental implants. Now there are revolutionary dental implant techniques that eliminate the need for bone grafting altogether. Zygomatic Implants are a graftless dental implant technique where the implant is directly embedded in your cheekbones (referred to as Zygoma), where there is enough bone support for the implants.

For several people, fear overrules the need for important dental work. Avoiding the dentist makes most dental issues even worse. There are people who show up on the day of their appointment that are so worked up with fear and anxiety that they tense up and make even a simple procedure difficult for themselves and their dentist.

Luckily, we have a solution that does work: sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry can provide even the most anxious patients with comfort and relaxation so they can address their dental concerns without pain or anxiety or tension.

Think sedation dentistry might be a good choice for you? Take a look at the many benefits of sedation dentistry below.

Stress alleviation

Sedation dentistry doesn’t just alleviate the stress and anxiety of the actual procedure. Think about the constant low-level stress that comes with every single day you put off important dental work. Once you experience how easy a visit to the dentist can be, you’ll no longer feel the need to avoid the dentist. Checking dental work off your to-do list is always a relief.

Comfort

Even people who are not afraid of the dentist can feel extremely uncomfortable holding their mouths open for the time it takes the dentist to complete a procedure. Our method of Twilight Sedation will leave you conscious but drifting in and out of sleep. You won’t experience any kind of pain or discomfort at all.

Movement control

If you’re tense, on edge, and prone to sudden movement, your dentist will have to move slowly and with extreme care while using tools in your mouth. Sedation dentistry minimizes the tension in your body so you’re less likely to move around in ways that interrupt your dental procedure. This can also work for those with conditions that cause involuntary movement.

Time saving

Some complex dental issues require you to return to the dentist for a number of visits because it’s too difficult to stay still long enough to complete the work in one sitting. Sedation dentistry allows the dentist to perform multiple procedures in one visit.  This is of great benefit for patients with tight schedules or time constraints.

Money saving

You can also save money when your dentist performs multiple procedures at once.  You do pay an additional fee for the sedation, but it costs less than it would if you had to come in for more than one visit.  Also, consider the money saved by not having to take additional days off work for the completion of your dental work.

Better overall experience

One thing you may not know is that when you’re tense, your dentist is tense, too.  At Sedation and Implant Dentistry of Tehachapi, we want you to be comfortable and relaxed, and when you’re not, we can’t be either. We’ll always do a good job, no matter what, and we’ll always take the best care of you, but sedation dentistry allows us to focus our full concentration on your dental work, rather than your emotional state. This means, you get a better overall experience.

At Sedation and Implant Dentistry of Tehachapi, we’ve been able to help hundreds of people from Kern County and beyond experience their visit to the dentist as relaxing and worry-free event. We can do the same for you. Give us a call and schedule a consultation.

If there are two words that strike the most fear into the hearts of dental patients, it’s these: root canal. But while you may have heard rumors about how terrifying they are, root canals are relatively painless and extremely effective procedures – not to mention, completely commonplace. According to the American Dental Association Survey of Dental Services Rendered, over 15 million root canal treatments are performed annually in the United States.

Tooth loss is typically attributed to trauma, gum disease, advanced age or oral care. It can result in the need to replace one or several teeth. Dental implants are an ideal way to restore your missing teeth and improve your overall oral health.

Recent advancements in dental technology have made it easier than ever to achieve a full-mouth transformation without having to resort to ill-fitting dentures. If you need a full upper or lower arch of teeth replaced, All-On-4® dental implants might be right for you.

Perhaps there is no other healthcare profession like dentistry that has the unfortunate reputation of wanting to cause pain rather than prevent it.  For all the good that dentists do to improve our well being, there are many patients with fears about sitting in the dentist’s chair.

Maybe it has something to do with not liking sharp metal objects put into your mouth or a distaste for fluoride, no matter how strongly the hygienist insists it is “cherry flavored”.  But whatever the reason, there are many people (young and old), who have dental anxiety.
