Do you or someone in your family avoid dental visits due to fear or excessive anxiety? Have you missed checkups, dealt with tooth pain or other symptoms, or failed to schedule needed fillings, crowns, or other treatments because you simply can’t stand the thought of spending time in the dental chair? Sedation dentistry can help!
At Rochester Advanced Dentistry, we understand why dental fear occurs and will help you banish it. Whether it’s fear of anesthetic needles, discomfort with having your mouth inspected, or a bad dental experience in the past, there is a way to put high anxiety behind you and start paying better attention to the health of your teeth and gums.
Drowsy but not asleep with sedation dentistry
Sedation dentistry offers a way to sidestep the feelings of fear that may accompany you in the dentist’s chair. It is completely safe, thoroughly tested, and FDA-approved. We will give you a sedative medication before the treatment which induces relaxation and allows you to undergo several hours of treatment in a conscious but sleep-like state. You will be awake and able to interact, but will have little or no memory of the treatment once the medication wears off. In a few hours, you’ll be back to normal with a beautiful new smile and a healthier mouth.
With our sedation dentistry technique, you can improve your smile with virtually any treatment we offer, including:
- Porcelain veneers
- Smile makeover
- Dental bonding
- Porcelain crowns
- Replacement crowns
- Tooth whitening
- Porcelain fillings
- Gum treatment
- Neuromuscular treatment
- Headache/migraine treatment
- Dental implants
- Oral surgery
- Snoring treatment
Fearful patients can’t afford to ignore their dental health any longer! The links between dental health and overall body health are strong, and ignoring your teeth and gums could have serious consequences.
