Sedation Dentistry

Through the modern miracles of sedation dentistry, dentists can now safely treat anxious patients and often accomplish all dental work in one visit that may have required many more visits without it.

Dental phobia, or fear of the dentist, is not uncommon. In fact, many people avoid dental treatments altogether, as the stress and anxiety can be overwhelming. As a result, dental health deteriorates, but with sedation dentistry, offered at our practice, you can receive the periodontal care you need without the stress and fear.

Who is a candidate for sedation dentistry?

Nearly all patients are candidates for sedation dentistry. But sedation dentistry can help patients who have...

  • High fear and anxiety for dental treatment
  • Traumatic dental experiences
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • A bad gag reflex
  • Very sensitive teeth
  • Complex dental problems
  • Limited time to complete dental care
  • Inability to control movements due to conditions like Parkinson’s Disease or cerebral palsy

If you are one of those patients who hate needles, shots and the noises, smells and taste associated with dental care, call our office for a consultation with our doctor and see how you can be benefitted. Don’t let anxiety and fears come in the way of your dental care!

Oral sedation isquite safe. Your vital signs will be continually monitored and someone will always be with you. In some cases, before your appointment, a consultation will be necessary between our doctors and your physician.
