Who Can Benefit From Sedation Dentistry
There are a large number of patients who experience some level of anxiety when visiting the dentist. Some patients have more severe feelings than others and, as a result, have avoided dental care for longer than they would like to admit. There are a number of reasons that patients may be nervous or fearful of the dentist. For these patients, we are proud to offer sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses medication to help put patients in a state of relaxation so they are able to get the dental care they need. It can be used for patients who need a hygiene examination and cleaning as well as patients who are in need of dental treatment. Patients who may benefit from sedation dentistry include those who:
- Experienced traumatic past dental experiences
- Cannot sit for long periods of time
- Need a large amount of work completed
- Cannot handle the sights, sounds and smells of the office
- Gag easily
- Do not get numb easily
Levels of Sedation
If you are in need of sedation dentistry, we will work with you to determine which method is best for your needs. We offer minimal sedation and moderate sedation. Both will help you feel totally relaxed and at ease during your visit.
