About Sedation Dentistry
Who is an ideal candidate for sedation dentistry?
Patients who experience a high level of dental anxiety or avoid going to the dentist may be good candidates for sedation dentistry. You may also be a candidate if you have:
- Had a traumatic dental experience in the past
- Difficulty getting numb
- Limited time to complete your dental treatment plan
- More complex dental problems
- Very sensitive teeth
- A bad gag reflex
- An aversion to being at the dentist’s office
- Embarrassment about your teeth
What types of sedation options are available?
Many patients experience dental anxiety before they even settle in the dentist’s chair and have a hard time feeling comfortable. Sedation dentistry can help. Dr. Joe Wilbanks offers the following types of services:
- Intravenous (IV) Conscious Sedation
- Oral Sedation
- Nitrous Oxide
Sedation Dentistry Can Relieve Dental Anxiety!
Many people have dental anxiety because of bad experiences in the past or because they have an aversion to the smells and noises in the dental office environment. We understand that these feelings can hold you back from getting the treatment you need and deserve, and we are here to help! We offer sedation dentistry services to make every visit with us comfortable and relaxing. Sedation can help patients stick with their treatment plan and enable them to achieve and maintain better oral health.
Sedation dentistry could be just what you need to stay on track with your treatment plan. We offer several different forms of sedation and the flexibility to control various levels of sedation depending on the extent of dental anxiety you are experiencing. Some patients benefit greatly from oral sedation, while others need something that provides a deeper state of relaxation, such as intravenous (IV) conscious sedation.
