Dental health plays an important role in physical health. Study after study has shown that your teeth and gums affect the health in the rest of your body, affecting everything from your brain to your organs. This makes sense, as the mouth is the portal to all of your nutritional needs, and if you have a gum infection, tooth pain, or generally poor dental health, the rest of your body is likely to suffer.
Visiting the dentist is important. But it’s hard to visit the dentist if you suffer from dental anxiety. At Esthetic Reflections in Folsom, we’re so happy to be able to offer sedation dentistry, a way to make sure that you are able to stay calm and relaxed throughout the dental procedure.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Dr. Chen is one of the few sedation dentists in Folsom, CA. He is able to prescribe safe medications and use procedures that allow patients to receive excellent quality dental care while relaxed or asleep through the procedure.
For some patients, sedation dentistry begins at home. Dr. Chen prescribes a mild sedative that relaxes the patient, who is then driven to our Folsom office for treatment. Once in the office, there are options for mild to deep sedation, giving the patient the option of being either relaxed or asleep.
Patients that opt for the latter wake up and are finished with their procedure(s) and in better dental health, all without any anxiety.
