Yes, when it comes to cleaning my teeth I have to be sedated. I have an intense fear of my gums to be scrapped. That is why I am given a shot and I am in a twilight zone.

Sedation also is taken when doing a major surgery to the patient but sometimes when the patient has fear and ask to be sedated then the dentist perfrom the request of the patient.

Sedation is due to fear of patient that he/she does not want treatment because of anxiety or anything else. Most of the patients avoid dental implant because it was dangerous in past but now with latest machinery , it has become easy and painless. So, I would like to suggest that contact with Dr.Asha who is a good dentist in Diamond Bar CA and may easily remove your fear regarding dental treatment.

Treatments for dental fear often include a combination of behavioral and pharmacological techniques. Specialized dental fear clinics, use both psychologists and dentists to help people learn to manage and decrease their fear of dental treatment. The goal of these clinics is to provide individuals with the fear management skills necessary for them to receive regular dental care with a minimum of fear or anxiety. Many dental providers outside of such clinics use similar behavioral and cognitive strategies to help patients reduce their fear.

Apart from behavioral and pharamacological techniques peer support through online communities like dental1.org and organic relaxation techniques are also very useful to deal with dental anxiety and phobia.

Sedation or "sleep dentistry" may offer a solution for the 25% of American adults who actively avoid the dentist due to anxiety or fear. As this article explains, oral or IV medication is used to induce a relaxed state in nervous patients, allowing the dentist to focus on his or her work and the patient to enjoy a pain and anxiety free visit. For a less chemically-dependent way to relax, check out this Dental1 feature story. How do you deal with anxiety or fear of the dentist?
