New IV Sedation Dental Procedure Allows for Painless Anxiety Free Dental Visits
WESTMINSTER, CO: Dr. Kenneth Polke, (http://americandentalexcellence.com), founder of American Dental Excellence in the Denver area, has begun offering a new pain-free, anxiety-free dental experience. The procedure, known as sedation dentistry, uses an IV sedation to relax the patient and make them comfortable during the operation. Dr. Polke is offering this service to those with such fear of dental operations that they would otherwise be unable to go through the experience, or could only do so in extreme discomfort.
Dr. Polke began implementing this procedure after receiving training with the American Dental Society of Anesthesiologists and becoming fully familiar with the process. The procedure involves using an IV drip with a sedative. The patient is sat down and sedation is begun before the procedure begins. The amount of medication is completely customized, so no more or less is used than is needed for the patient to have a comfortable experience.
Dr. Polke stated: “A fear of the dentist is one of the most common phobias in today’s society. These bad feelings toward dental professionals most likely stem from a bad experience that happened as a child. I understand this, which is why we work patiently and gently with each person in our care. However, for patients who have an extreme fear of visits to the dentist’s office, we can offer you an anxiety-free treatment by using sedation dentistry.”
