What is Sedation Dentistry?

Alleviate Your Anxiety and Save Time

Sedation dentistry is the use of pharmacological agents to calm and relax a dental patient prior to and during a dental appointment which also allows more dental work to be performed in a single visit.


What is Sedation Dentistry

If you are one of the many fearful people who shudder at the thought of going to the dentist, fear not. If you are one of the many fearful people who tense up at the thought of a simple dental teeth cleaning, fear not, and finally, if you are one of the many fearful people who would rather tolerate the pain of a toothache rather than getting it repaired, fear not. Dr. Taylor, at The Mount Pleasant Dentist, can help! The Mount Pleasant Dentist offers sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry may somewhat lessen your anxiety, depending on your intensity of fear, and you can request it for any dental treatment ranging from a routine dental check up to restorative procedures.

The Mount Pleasant Dentist realizes that no one really enjoys visiting the dentist. Please let us know your concerns. We want you to be as relaxed as possible while we tend to your dental needs.

What Exactly Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is similar to sedation procedures used in other medical procedures, which put you in a tranquil and trouble-free mood by the use of sedatives. Dr. Taylor uses the most up-to-date sedation and anesthesia techniques available: laughing gas, local anesthesia, oral sedation, and IV sedation. Your dental procedure may require one of these methods or a combination of more than one to achieve a tolerable comfort level for you.

How Do I Benefit from the Use of Sedation Dentistry?

You will experience quite a few benefits when you elect to use sedation dentistry; however, the most beneficial results are

  • You have reduced fear or anxiety during your dental procedure
  • You have a greater comfort level during your dental procedure
  • You have an overall more relaxing experience during your dental procedure

Is Sedation Dentistry Right for Me?

Dr. Taylor will discuss your level of dental fear to determine if sedation dentistry is right for you, but if you find that any of the following circumstances keeps you from seeking your needed dental work, then, yes, sedation dentistry is right for you.

  • You fear dental work
  • You had a previously bad dental experience
  • You are difficult to numb
  • You have a sensitive gag reflex
  • You have sensitive teeth
  • You have a complex schedule with time limitations
  • You have complex dental issues
  • You have a fear of needles
  • You are embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth
  • You are not fond to the smells and tastes associated with dental work
  • You have a physical circumstance that does not permit conventional dental work

Again, Dr. Taylor or one of his well-trained staff will gladly talk about your dental concerns to determine the sedation method right for you. Consider sedation dentistry. It is a simple, relaxing way to achieve a relaxed, anxiety-free dental experience.
