relaxation-dentistry.gif The latest dental technique called “Relaxation Dentistry” puts an end to all the pain and other associated problems during dental procedure. The technique which was started in 2000 is gaining popularity now. Relaxation Dentistry is successful in about 99% of the patients and has no ill effects. The procedure involves giving the patient a Valium the night before the dental procedure, such that he gets enough sleep. On the day of the dental procedure the patient is given an anti-anxiety drug, which is placed under the tongue. This drug slowly makes the patient half-asleep. Then the dentist can perform the required dental procedure and the whole procedure will be painless. During the dental procedure a nurse constantly monitors the patients pulse, blood pressure and oxygen levels. The procedure is not recommended in young children & pregnant women. The cost of the procedure ranges from $150-$600.
