For those who are afraid of pain, going to the dentist for check-ups or worse, a cavity is the worse experience ever. However, with the help of painless treatment, you might be relieved from the fear of pain incurred.


What is painless treatment?

For people who have an anxiety or fear of visiting the dentist, painless treatment is suitable for them. Painless treatment is achieved through sedation and laser treatment.

Sedation for the dental treatment will be administered by a dental anaesthesiologist who will continue to monitor your physiological parameters. After the scheduled treatment plan is completed for the session, you will be allowed to rest under observation, and then be allowed to go home.

Laser treatment, on the other hand, works by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that comes in contact with.


Benefits of painless treatment 

1.Acceptance of Treatment is greater 

When you don’t have to fear your dental procedures, you’ll find treatment (whether for oral health or cosmetic enhancement) much easier to accept. With no barriers of discomfort in the way, getting an implant done or even removing a cavity is a simpler, more carefree process.

2.Safe and Cost effective measure

As sedation is different from general anesthetic, you will be able to breath on your own without the need for any gases or machines. Hence, it is safer and more cost effective than a general anesthetic.

Also, laser treatment enables lesser risk of cross contamination. While the drill and needle creates opportunities for infection and passing germs, laser treatment is non-contact and thus, a safer process.


Who can get painless treatment?

While it is safe for everyone, it is still advisable that you consult your dentist first in order to get the best treatment for your teeth.
