Sedation Dentistry By Dr. Russell Mann
Mann Family Dental has been proud to offer sedation dentistry at our Manchester office as a means to overcoming dental anxiety for the past five years. Recently, Dr. Mann received an Unrestricted Moderate Sedation permit from the New Hampshire Board of Dental Examiners through their Anesthesia/Evaluation Committee. This new permit will allow our office to use Intravenous (IV) medication as well as oral medication to treat fearful and high anxiety adult patients more comfortably!
Dr. Mann upholds his continued commitment to providing the best dental care being one of only five general dentists in New Hampshire to have completed the education and training required to receive this permit to practice sedation dentistry. Dr. Mann and his team completed over 90 hours of training from Oregon Health Sciences University, and his facility has passed a rigorous sedation safety inspection. We were motivated to provide IV sedation because of our dedication to helping patients fighting dental anxiety to receive much-needed treatment and improve oral health.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry for You
For the past five years, we have provided sedation dentistry in the form of Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation in the form of a pill. While the majority of nervous patients were able to overcome their fears with these methods of sedation dentistry, in severe cases, more is needed. To accommodate patients with extreme dental anxiety, as well as those that find it challenging to endure lengthy procedures, Mann Family Dental utilized an outside company to provide IV sedation.
Part of reducing the fear of dental care is a good relationship with your dentist and his team. If you suffer from dental anxiety, a fear of the unknown can exacerbate your worries and make receiving needed care even more challenging. This is why we felt it essential to provide our in-house team with the training necessary to provide IV sedation. Receiving this form of sedation dentistry from the dental team that you are familiar with provides an added level of comfort and calm and dramatically reduces anxiety.
