Afraid of the dentist? Sedation dentistry is the answer! I’m training in Southern California all this week with USC Anesthesia Faculty to further advance my skills for the benefit of my patients. Patients can rest assured they are receiving state of the art Dental Sedation when they come to Gentle Dental Care in Plainville, CT, a central CT dental office.
Quality dentistry in now available to everyone regardless of their fear level, with the benefit of dental sedation. I have been in California five previous weeks as well recently, obtaining advanced sedation dentistry training with University of Southern California, Department of Anesthesiology Faculty.
Today I sedated a wheelchair bound patient who breathes through a tracheostomy with the new skills I have learned. The sedation medications were partially administered through his tracheostomy he has had for years (which is a direct opening into his airway through his neck). He slept through his dental sedation appointment, much to his delight.
Samantha, a 7 year old child, needed to be intubated today, as her dental phobia resulted in a high fear uncooperative patient who deserves access to high quality sedation dentistry like everyone else. The level of safety and monitoring taught by my mentors is exceptional. I’m privileged to learn from them and further increase the safety and skill level of sedation dentistry at Gentle Dental Care in my office in Plainville, CT, a central CT dental office.
Our level of medical monitoring during sedation dentistry is hospital level quality and well beyond the standard of care. All vital information regarding the patient is continuously monitored just as it would be in the hospital. The only difference is we can do it for far less cost than a hospital can. It’s a win/win situation for our patients.
Tomorrow, I will be intubating a 3 year old girl with extensive cavities due to an unfortunate condition called “bottle caries” which occurs when a child is put to bed with a bottle of juice or milk. Children are “different” than adults in many ways when it comes to sedation dentistry and I make it a vital priority to know how to handle these differences. Safety first is paramount. This advanced training that I am receiving makes more moderate sedation much safer and easier for all.
You would never consider having your appendix or tonsils out without sedation. Why should complex dental care be any different?
