Car Crash in America inspires dental patients to seek help getting home from their appointments

A car crash stemming from the dentist’s office has caused us to reach out to our patients and make sure they get home safe…

Car-Crash-in-America-inspires-dental-patients-to-seek-help-getting-home-from-their-appointments

Over the last weekend a man in Houston in America crashed into two houses on the way home from a dental appointment. He was reported to the Houston Police Department by the first neighbour who he narrowly missed when he hit their house. There were no other cars involved in the accident which means that it was either human error or a much more serious implication. Although there has not been any proof provided yet, it is a distinct possibility that the man veered off the road due to choice to neglect the fact that he recently underwent dental surgery with anaesthesia. While the man is currently being treated and is undertaking tests in hospital, this story has still got us here at Oasis Dental Studio worried about our patient’s welfare and their choices after they leave our chair.

We always recommend getting a lift home if you’re undergoing anaesthesia.

Though we can’t say for sure about the Houston man’s dentist – most dentists including Oasis Dental Studio in Broadbeach firmly recommend getting a lift home after undergoing anaesthesia in the dentist chair. This ensures that you don’t have to rely on yourself to get home and you are completely eliminated from risk of crashing. Every body reacts to anaesthesia differently, that’s why it is never a good idea to drive home when you might possibly still be under the influence of general anaesthesia.

General and local anaesthesia is a wonderful dental tool that should still be utilised if recommended by your certified dentist

General or local anaesthesia is an imperative dental tool as it allows us to make you more comfortable by numbing pain and reducing your anxiety. Anaesthesia and relaxants come in a number of forms and you will use different types depending on your dentist. Relaxants such as nitrous oxide or ‘laughing gas’ have been used as a means of inhalation sedation for a number of years and dentists and patients have experienced the number of positive effects of this treatment. This relaxant can be used to nullify pain experienced during dental surgery while allowing you to remain conscious enough to communicate with your dentist.

Anaesthesia helps rehabilitate patients that have dental phobia

Dental Phobia is a serious mental concern for people of all ages which usually stems from a past negative experience or the habit of catastrophising normal experiences. Dental phobia is also known as fear of the dentist and it results in patients either being anxious during their visit or avoiding visiting the dentist all together despite whether they are in pain or completely healthy. If you suffer dental phobia please do not hesitate in asking one of our professional dentists about our range of relaxation options or therapies.

The dentists here at Oasis Dental Studio are passionate about providing precise boutique treatments that improve the comfort and ease of our patients. We can assure you that we will provide you with premium dentistry that is of a gold-class standard.
