Millions of people in America have fears and anxieties about visiting the dentist. In some cases, dental phobias even keep them from attaining necessary dental work. Sedation dentistry is a way for you to overcome your fears of the dentist and feel more relaxed and comfortable when you have treatment. At Radiant Expressions Dental, we offer a number of sedation dentistry techniques that can put you in a very relaxed state. Some of our options, such as oral conscious sedation, to make it possible for you to undergo treatment without realizing it. Sedation dentistry techniques can reduce your fears and anxieties associate with needles, instruments, sounds, and smells commonly associated with the dentist’s office. With sedation dentistry, our dental team can alleviate your anxieties and provide you with the care you need to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
For those adult patients who have extremely sensitive teeth, bad gag reflexes, difficulty getting numb, a fear of needles, past traumatic dental experiences, or dental anxiety, oral conscious sedation can relieve you of these issues during treatment. This technique does not involve methods to put patients into a deep sleep, it simply relaxes you so much that you should feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure, ultimately helping to reduce your anxiety and have a more pleasant treatment experience.
