Premier Care Dental Group comments on a recent article that sleep dentistry can largely alleviate dental anxiety in most patients.

PASADENA, Calif., April 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A March 26 article on MSN detailed

the common experience of having dental dreams, sometimes containing such alarming events as a person's teeth falling out or crumbling. The article notes that as much as 39 percent of the population may experiences dreams about teeth. While science has not definitively found a cause or interpretation for such dreams, the article suggests a variety of potential causes including long term anxiety and various insecurities. The only sure thing about the phenomenon is that it seems to affect a large number of people, the article says. Premier Care Dental Group says that, while a visit to the dentist won't necessarily eliminate upsetting dental dreams, it can definitely ease waking anxiety surrounding real dental concerns like missing or damaged teeth and definitely reduce the odds of real-life dental nightmares.

While everyone wants to avoid serious dental problems, too many of us let our fear prevent us from getting the help we very much need, says Premier Care Dental Group. Sedation dentistry, by definition, can tranquilize or make a patient completely unconscious while a dentist performs anything from routine checkups to advanced surgeries, the clinic says. It adds that, generally speaking, there are four primary types of anesthesia and sedation. These range from local anesthesia to complete or nearly-total sedation, or some combination of the two. In the vast majority of cases, these techniques result in outstanding results in terms of making procedures both comfortable and safe.

Premier Care Dental Group adds that a large number of patients experience some forms of dental anxiety, even for procedures that are very routine and far from invasive, such as teeth cleaning. Nevertheless, this kind of anxiety is extremely common and a skilled and compassionate dental professional should be more than experienced in alleviating those concerns, the clinic says. More importantly, it continues, that there is a large range of options that accompany certain procedures. For example, oral surgeries typically require a level of sleep dentistry in order for the dentist to perform the surgery effectively. The clinic says that a dental professional can provide options beyond the typical level of local anesthesia for patients who have very levels of anxiety undergoing operations. In cases where any type of drug-induced sedation is involved, the clinic says, the only issue is that patients must have a designated driver on hand to take them home following the procedure.
