See how Your Methuen MA Dentist can Help Fight Your Fears with Sedation
"To say that I was apprehensive about having three wisdom teeth extracted would be an understatement. Nearing the age of sixty, my idea of dental health included keeping all of my natural teeth. Over the course of several years, Dr. Albert Sandler and his staff in Methuen MA used my regularly scheduled maintenance visits to patiently explain that my wisdom teeth would eventually interfere with the cleaning of my molars and would cause the other molars to decay. I understood the need to have the teeth extracted as I saw for myself how difficult it was to perform this daily cleaning. I was not a stranger to dental procedures as I have had my share of fillings, cleanings and root canals, however the thought of extractions caused me anxiety. During one of my regular maintenance visits, Dr. Sandler broached the subject of conscious sedation. As I understood the procedure, I would be conscious and alert during the dental procedure, however the sedation would lessen or eliminate the accompanying anxiety. I decided to give it a try. I booked the appointment and was given two pills that would provide the sedation. The night before the procedure, I took one pill. The morning of the procedure, I took the second pill. I arrived at Dr. Albert Sandler’s office the morning of the procedure feeling relaxed and comfortable. Dr. Sandler removed the three wisdom teeth. I can honestly say that although physically I felt no different, the conscious sedation eliminated my stress and anxiety over the extractions. It is my opinion that conscious sedation in dentistry will allow even the most anxious patient a comfortable and stress free experience. "
