You have individual needs. At our practice, we understand that and pride ourselves on our ability to work with each patient on an individualized level. Sedation dentistry provides numerous benefits for different needs. When considering oral sedation dentistry, our team will take many factors into consideration including your overall health. However, if you fit into one of these groups, sedation dentistry might be the best option for you.

Dental Anxiety or Fear

Sedation dentistry can make a fearful trip to the dentist far more manageable. Each day in our office we work with patients who suffer from dental anxiety. Don’t let fear or nervousness hold you back from receiving the dental care you deserve. Contact us for more information.

Gag Reflexes

A routine dental examination can be problematic if you have an overactive gag reflex. Sedation dentistry as part of your dental treatment can be utilized in many of these cases. You will be able to relax comfortably in our office without needing to feel concerned about gagging.

Fear of Needles or IVs

Other sedation options may involve the use of needles or IVs. This can be an additional source of fear if you are anxious around needles. We use oral sedation, which does not utilize any needles or IVs.

Special Needs

Each patient has different needs. Oral sedation dentistry as part of your dental treatment can be beneficial to patients with hyperactivity or those who have difficulty remaining still. Our team is trained and experienced in working with patients with special needs. We will study your medical history before deciding on an appropriate course of action.

Oral sedation dentistry can be a welcome change for you. Don’t let fear, anxiety, or embarrassment prevent you from receiving routine dental care. We will work with you directly and evaluate your individual needs to determine if you are a candidate for oral sedation dentistry as part of your dental treatment. Know that you have options.
