Some statistically research will claim that close to 60% of our society can experience anxiety when you suggest a dental visit. Between 5 and 10% of that group actually take it to the next level, that being an actual condition called dental phobia. Some of the causes of either dental anxiety or phobia are these common themes:

  • Pain-This is the most frequent cause in adults over the age of 24. This might be the result of childhood visits when the idea of pain-free dentistry was not as prevalent.
  • Embarassment-The mouth is actually an intimate part of the body and some people are self-conscious of someone they really don’t know well being so physically close.
  • The loss of control- There is the feeling of helplessness while in the dental chair that can trigger an anxious feeling.
  • Negative prior experiences- If you have had past visits that were either painful or quite discomfortable why wouldn’t you naturally expect that again.

By scheduling an appointment for an evaluation with us at Bourbonnias Family Dental we can discuss how we can offer you a painless dental experience with us. Please call 815-939-2520 or stop by the office at 498 Brown Blvd., Bourbonnias, IL 60914 to make an appointment that works for you.

Symptom to Identify when You are considering a Painless Dentist

Here are some signs prior to your ensuing dental appointment:

  • You have trouble sleeping and are tense the night before your dental exam.
  • The simple thought of a dental visit makes you feel physically ill.
  • You become even more nervous while you are sitting in the waiting room.
  • You find yourself having difficulty breathing and feel like panicing when dental objects are placed in your mouth during an examination or a procedure.

If any of these signs describe you then those feelings need to be shared with our painless dentist, Dr. Dolbov. We will address how we can change the way you will be treated by introducing you to sedation dentistry.

Painless Dentistry or Sedation Dentistry

Introducing sedation to your dental visit is perfectly safe. New techniques continue to expand our applications. We can now include sedation for something as simple as teeth cleaning. The methods of administration are:

  • Inhaled- laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, is carefully administered through a breathing mask. With this method you can actually drive yourself home after your visit.
  • Oral- This offers a variety of levels of strength when it comes to the results. You may be so groggy that you will fall asleep during the procedure.
  • IV- For immediate results we can administer through an IV drip. We can monitor and adjust the dosage throughout the procedure with this method.

These different methods can give us these different levels of sedation.

  • Minimal-You stay awake but are calm through the procedure.
  • Moderate- You are still awake but not fully aware of what is going on.
  • Deep- You are considered awake but with minimal consciousness.
  • General Anesthesia- This is when you are completely unconscious.

Prevention is a good Place to start in addressing Dental Anxiety

We would like to schedule the time to advise you on the benefits of good oral hygiene at home. By following a program at home, you can be proactive and therefore minimize reactive procedures in our office. The dental industry strongly suggests that we all brush our teeth twice a day, for two minutes at each time. Then flossing at least once a day is the basis for a good at home oral hygiene practice. This will remove the bacteria carrying plaque daily not allowing it to form on the teeth. The plaque is the culprit behind cavities and gum disease. If you like our approach and our painless dentistry service and want us on your dental health team, we will also encourage you to establish appointments every six months. Prevention is the ticket in the dental business. We like to see patients with healthy teeth and gums. We are also promoters of helping you keep your natural teeth for your lifetime. This can be done together. We might ask you to share your diet and what you might be fond of and what might favorites might need to be curtailed.

The Costs associate with Painless Dentistry and Insurance Coverage

The costs that will be associated with your painless dentistry application will be discussed at the time of your evaluation and consultation. It will depend on the method in which we administer the sedation, the amount used, and the duration of time the sedation is used. We can identify these costs separate from the actual procedure for the insurance company. The administrative staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will inquire with your dental insurance carrier to determine the amount of coverage for the sedation procedure. If there will be a balance due a payment plan can and will be discussed if that is your wish. We also accept all major credit cards. We may also revisit our options if the budget is a driving factor in carrying out our plan. We’ll walk before we run when it comes to introducing painless dentistry to you.
