Dealing With Dental Anxiety
Have you had difficulty with dental treatments in the past because of the effects of dental anxiety, a strong gag reflex or other condition that limited your ability to comfortably sit through appointments? Dr. Irwan Goh offers numerous sedation options. You don’t need to avoid getting dental care again. Learn more by calling us at 702-832-5517.
Break through Dental Anxiety with Sedation Dentistry
Fear of the dentist is one of the main reasons that people avoid taking care of their oral health and hygiene. Unfortunately, it is not realistic to assume that brushing and flossing at home will address all dental issues. Many dental problems, such as cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease, can only be detected and treated by a trained professional such as Dr. Goh.
Instead of leaving your wellness to chance, take charge of your well being by choosing sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows you to comfortably get the dental treatments you need while eliminating your worries.

These medications are taken by mouth and relax you. While you are sedated, you will remain conscious, but will have a feeling of ease and calm. After the treatment has ended, the sedatives will wear off naturally and you will feel refreshed.
IV Sedation Dentistry
During this type of sedation method, a medication is sent through the patient’s bloodstream intravenously. After the procedure, the medication is stopped and the patient is observed until he or she is ready to leave the office. Most patients have little to no memory of the procedure.
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask. This gas puts you in a state of deep relaxation and allows your mind to take the focus off any dental anxiety.
Some patients opt for a local anesthetic, which is usually delivered via needle. This anesthetic numbs the area that will be treated. The patient may still feel pressure, but will not feel any discomfort.
For certain individuals, the only way to easily undergo dental treatments such as extractions or surgical procedures is through general anesthetic. This process leaves the patient completely unconscious throughout the dental procedure.
