If you are nervous or worried about having any kind of dental work, then one option to help ease your nerves is IV sedation. This is an easy solution for those who are nervous, and can help to reduce anxiety in the days leading up to the dental work, and gives the dentist freedom to complete the work without having to worry the patient. It also allows the dentist to complete up to multiple treatments in one session, perfect for those who need a lot of dental work but are worried about the treatment. It is also good for patients who may need a complicated dental treatment, such as dental implants.
Tooth Decay is when a tooth has started to break down which causes cavities that can be quite painful if a nerve is left exposed.
As tooth decay progresses, it can lead to the death of the tooth, which will either require an extraction, root canal, or the tooth can even fall out by itself (will vary from case to case).
