Sedation Dentistry Can Be The Big Difference

RECENTLY, SOMEONE IN OUR PRACTICE OVERHEARD a person (NOT one of our patients!) compare dental visits to washing dishes—you don’t like it but everybody knows that it needs to be done. Well, in response, may we suggest an analogy of our own?

What if every time there were dirty dishes you could simply snap your fingers and they would be scraped, washed, dried, and back in your cupboard!

Although it doesn’t work quite so miraculously, sedation dentistry DOES work in much the same way for many people who have trouble going to the dentist—with results that “feel” faster (and really are faster).

Sedation dentistry has proven helpful to many of our patients, for a variety of reasons, and for a number of different procedures. Sedation dentistry often helps people feel like their visit lasted only a few minutes—when in fact, it may have lasted for hours.

There are many different kinds of sedation dentistry. The dentists here at Dental Partners of Boston work with you to determine what’s best for your particular situation. In some cases, sedation can be much like anesthesia during surgery. But more often, sedation doesn’t actually put you completely out. Most patients who choose sedation dentistry are awake, functional, and responsive.

One of the biggest benefits of sedation dentistry is that procedures that typically take multiple visits can be accomplished in one visit—saving you a lot of time, hassle, and stress. And obviously, the second biggest benefit is that patients who experience dental anxiety can better relax, resolving their fears or worries.

We are very proud of, and confident in, the sedation methods we use. We are on the leading edge of this service—continually updated our skills and techniques.

Learn more about sedation dentistry by asking us a question, or giving us a call. Or, next time you’re in our office, visit with one of us for more details. We look forward to helping you, a loved one, or friend better understand if sedation dentistry is for you.

We understand, and here’s a quick course:

Twitter Is A Real-Time Information Network…

that connects you with information you find interesting. Small bursts of information (140 characters in length) called Tweets share a lot in a little space. Connected to each Tweet are linked rich details, deeper context, and embedded media.

Whether YOU CHOOSE to tweet a lot, OR NEVER, you still have access to the voices and information that interests you. You can contribute, or just listen in and retrieve.

Life is busy. Sometimes there’s no time to sit down and read a newspaper article, magazine story, or lengthy blog post. You may be sitting, waiting for somebody, and have a couple minutes.

What Comes To Your Mind When You Think About YouTube?

If you’re like most people, the first thing you probably think is, “The place for funny, viral videos.” But did you know that YouTube is now the #2 search engine on the web? That’s right.

And sometimes, we just like to have a little fun too.

So take a moment to browse the videos on our YouTube channel. We go out and collect a lot of the best thinking on the web so you don’t have to spend hours searching, or wondering about the credibility of what you’re watching.
