“I’m new to the area,” Andrew said. “Back home in Chicago, whenever I had to see the dentist, for a cleaning or anything else, he’d use some sedation and take the edge off for me. I didn’t need to be knocked out or anything, but I could sit there in the chair and not be overly nervous. Keeping my teeth in good shape is important to me. Now I’m living out here in Western MA, and I’m wondering if I need to drive to Boston for sedation dentistry or is there an option a little closer to home?”
Sedation dentistry is available in Quincy, MA. Dr. Brustin started his practice here over 30 years, and was one of the first local dentists to offer general anesthesia to his patients. Since those early days, the practice has grown and Dr. Pamela Regan, Dr. Martin Urban, and Dr. Jeffery Jackel have joined Dr. Brustin in providing the best in high quality dental care to children, teens, and adults.
Research has shown that people who are relaxed and calm during dental treatment have better outcomes than people who are anxious or fearful. Calmer patients experience and report less pain, have fewer complaints subsequent to treatment, and recover more rapidly. Obviously, these are all good things! Sedation dentistry needs to be tailored to each individual patient’s medical needs. Your Quincy dentist will work closely with you to determine what level and method of sedation will allow you to achieve a properly relaxed state so treatment can be performed without causing you any undue distress or discomfort.
