The benefits of sedation dentistry

Scheduling regular dentist appointments is a necessary step in maintaining optimal oral health. An experienced dentist can provide you with general and cosmetic services that protect your teeth from dental diseases and other threatening medical conditions. However, many people experience “dental anxiety” or “dental phobia” any time they sit in a patient chair. This level of anxiety can prevent patients from seeking necessary oral treatments even when they’re experiencing pain. Fortunately, Luminous Smiles offers sedation dentistry to any patients who require dental treatments but suffer from intense anxiety.

Sedation dentistry benefits patients who:

  • Feel intense fear or anxiety during appointments
  • Fidget during dental procedures
  • Have strong gag reflexes
  • Are resistant to specific numbing agents
  • Have Sensory Procession Disorders
  • Are on the Autism spectrum

Above all else, sedation dentistry is safe, comfortable, and effective. We offer various types of sedation options that can alleviate your anxiety and mitigate any physical pain or discomfort. When you schedule an appointment, our dentist can determine which sedation procedure best suits your needs and personal circumstances.

We commonly use these four sedation options:

  • Numbing gel
  • Oral sedation
  • Inhalation sedation
  • IV sedation

By utilizing sedation dentistry, we can complete the entirety of your procedure while you’re in a peaceful and relaxed state. Because we complete more work within one appointment, you may not even need to come in for another session. Sedation dentistry doesn’t just prioritize your comfort, it also protects your wallet!
