- Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of pharmacological agents to calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental appointment. The pharmacological agents usually belong to a class of drugs called sedatives, which exert their action by depressing the central nervous system, specifically those areas concerned with conscious awareness.
There are different degrees of central nervous system depression, each corresponding to a level of relaxation which ranges from minimal, moderate, to deep sedation. In general, minimal sedation refers to a patient who has reduced anxiety but readily responds to verbal or physical stimulation. With moderate sedation the patient is even more relaxed, and will respond to purposeful stimulation. In deep sedation, the patient may not exhibit any signs of consciousness and therefore be unresponsive to stimulation.
- Dental Implants
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots which are mainly used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, thus helping to stop or prevent the loss of jaw bone. This procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, but is also considered to be a form of cosmetic dentistry. Similar to most treatment procedures in dentistry today, dental implants are not only advanced in terms of its procedure but are also carried out extensively. Implant dentistry which is an aspect of this procedure needs expertise in planning, surgery and the restoration of tooth.
