Patients who suffer from dental anxiety can now turn to Dr. Tokarczyk for treatment. Dr. Tokarczyk offers sedation dentistry in Springfield, MO at his practice, for all patients from Nixa, Branson, and Ozark Missouri and Harrison, Mt. Home, Arkansas. The doctor?s hope is that patients who would otherwise opt to forgo treatment will take the opportunity to receive the dental care they require using sedation dentistry. As a State Examiner for the IV Conscious Sedation Committee for the Missouri Dental Board, Dr. Tokarczyk understands the value of sedation dentistry and how it can help patients; he encourages qualifying patients with anxiety to consider the procedure.
Fear of the dentist has been around just as long as the profession itself. This may be connected to the earliest forms of dentistry, which did little to relieve pain associated with treatment. Although many techniques today are performed to reduce and eliminate pain and discomfort whenever possible during treatment, some patients fear of pain is so overwhelming they would rather subject themselves to dental disease instead of seeking a resolution. The fear of dental induced pain is often so overwhelming for some patients that they fail to realize the detrimental effects of delaying their dental treatment.
When patients receive sedation dentistry in Springfield, MO with Dr. Tokarczyk, they are given their medication intravenously, or directly into the bloodstream. The medicine relaxes and calms patients with dental anxiety, so they no longer feel anxious. Regular pain relievers are also utilized, just as if the patient were having the procedure without sedation, which eliminates the majority of unnecessary pain. Although patients remain awake and able to answer questions, they may not recall undergoing the procedure once the sedation has worn off. Patients who undergo sedation dentistry are not able to drive for some time following a procedure, so a friend or relative must accompany them to their appointment to bring them home safely.
Dental Anxiety is a real concern, and can be crippling to those who want to properly address their oral health. Those who would like to learn more about sedation dentistry in Springfield, MO, should visit Dr. Tokarczyk?s website for more information, or set up a consultation with him to determine if they are a good candidate for conscious sedation.
