A significant number of Americans do not visit the dentist for regular checkups because they are too fearful or suffer from dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry alleviates anxiety and reduces fear commonly associated with dental procedures. It allows the dentist to meet/treat dental needs of anxious and fearful patients efficiently in a calm and comforting manner. Sedation dentistry is safe and allows more to be accomplished during each visit and improves dental experience for those who are afraid of the dentistry. The majority of procedures performed can utilize this service. It creates a relaxing environment for the patient. While you will still receive local anesthetic, this will help you transition post operatively.
