The sedation dentistry our Columbia-area practice offers eliminates the anxiety and fear you get when thinking about going to the dentist. You take the pill an hour before coming to our office. A companion of your choice then drives you to our office. You arrive in a relaxed and drowsy state. From this point on, a member of our team is always with you, and your vital signs are monitored throughout the entire visit. You are released from your treatments minutes after completion. After a comfortable and easy day, you will emerge from the experience refreshed, with straighter, whiter teeth.
We offer sedation dentistry to Columbia area residents for a variety of reasons. You're a likely candidate for sedation dentistry if you have a high fear of going to the dentist, because it's like you never went at all! You might also consider it if you have had a previous traumatic dental experience and want to come to us for a different kind of treatment. Some patients cannot go through with the more traditional procedures of dentistry because of a bad gag reflex or difficulty with needles or numbness.
The more complex your problem, the more likely sedation dentistry at our office near Columbia might be right for you. No matter how tough the operation, you won't remember the time it took or feel any of the pain that might otherwise be involved. Also, we know that sometimes bad teeth can be an embarrassment, and through sedation you won't have to overcome your shyness in showing us the problems afflicing your gums and mouth.
