Woman: Are you dental phobic?
Dr. Hirschfield: It has been estimated that 50% of the population are dental phobic, and do not see a dentist on a regular basis. Sedation techniques can help you overcome your nervousness, and give you the smile you deserve.
Sue: I've always hated going to the dentist. But I knew I had to have some work done. So sedation has helped me to overcome some of my fears, but also helped me get through a kind of complicated process.
Dr. Hirschfield: Sedation techniques include nitrous oxide, oral sedation, IV sedation and general anesthesia. The use of IV sedation has several advantages over the use of oral sedation techniques. I will constantly monitor your vital signs throughout the entire appointment. Upon administration of the IV medication, you will quickly feel relaxed and at ease.
