If you experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, sedation dentistry from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville may be for you.
Whether it is called relaxation dentistry, sleep dentistry, or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and a popular option for those coping with dental anxiety.
Though it may sound impossible, with sedation dentistry, patients can actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.
Sedation dentistry can be effective for treating or working with the following:
- Teeth sensitivity;
- Fear of needles;
- A powerful gag reflex;
- Difficulty in controlling body movement;
- Lengthy multi-procedure visits;
- Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections.
At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicscville, we offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. We also provide general and family dentistry. Make an appointment today.
