Read on to get more information and decide!

Sedation dentistry treatments can help a variety of types of patients. If you think that you fit into any of these categories, sedation dentistry may be right for you!

“I just hate the idea of dental treatment!”

If you suffer from dental anxiety, you may go to great lengths to avoid dental care. Maybe you have neglected the dental care you need because you can’t stand the idea of sitting in the dentist’s chair, or perhaps you panic during dental treatment because you feel out of control. Sedation treatment will make you feel calm before and during treatment, so that you can get the care you need.

“I swear my teeth are super sensitive!”

If you are prone to experiencing dental pain and sensitivity, sedation dentistry will help you avoid pain during treatment. Our dentist will work with you to determine what kind of pain-alleviating treatment is right for you.

“My mouth is a mess, I need a complete smile transformation!”

Patients who are undergoing multiple cosmetic treatments, or multi-phased treatment, will benefit from sedation dentistry. Sedation treatments will allow you to complete more dental treatments in less time, because you will not get as fatigued during treatment.
