For some people, going to the dentist can be an unpleasant experience. If you are a person who has had negative experiences in the past, sensitive teeth or even anxiety about dental procedures, you may not look forward to visiting the dentist even if it is for a regular check up. No matter what the case may be, you can look into your options in sedation dentistry so each trip to the dentist can be much easier to handle.


A dentist treating a patientWe often have dental emergencies in our practice and when a patient comes in, I often ask, “what happened?” Frequently, the patient who is in a great deal of pain responds that he/she has not been to the dentist is a very long time because they hate going to the dentist because  it always hurts and makes them feel uncomfortable.

This is a very common problem in dentistry and unfortunately it leads to way too many dental emergencies.

Look, if you’re having tooth or gum pain, or if you have a loose filling, etc., waiting for the problem to go away and/or fix itself on its own is a recipe for disaster. Dental problems DON”T go away on their own – they get worse when they’re neglected.

So what about the fear of going to the dentist? Do we have a solution to that?  The answer is YES!  We can give you oral sedation.  When you’re sedated you are completely unaware of the dental treatment being performed. You leave the office with absolutely no memory of experiencing any pain or discomfort.
