What is Sedation Dentistry?
We know that we have patients who suffer from anxiety and fear when visiting our office for routine hygiene examinations as well as needed treatments and procedures. We never want our patients to feel embarrassed about their emotions, and we hope all of our patients feel comfortable in expressing their feelings to us. Routine dental care is extremely important. It allows us to not only remove any lingering plaque, but we are also able to inspect your mouth for decay, gum disease and oral cancer. Postponing or avoiding these visits can be detrimental to your oral and overall health. Patients who suffer from nerves and dental anxiety may benefit from sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during treatment. We offer nitrous oxide as well as oral sedation. It may be an option for patients who:
- Have experienced prior dental trauma
- Have difficulty sitting through dental treatments and procedures
- Are sensitive to the sights, sounds, and smells of our office
- Have a heightened gag reflex
If you or a loved one has delayed your dental care due to nerves or fear, we recommend calling to speak to our caring and compassionate staff to learn more about sedation dentistry and the types we offer. We can help determine if you would be an ideal candidate. We look forward to seeing you in our office located in Wellington, FL soon.
