Tuscaloosa Sedation Dentistry
Why Consider Sedation Dentistry?
If you get the jitters just thinking about a dental appointment, you are not alone. Some studies suggest that 75% of US adults experience some degree of dental fear! Some of these patients are worried that they will not get numb before their procedure or they are frightened by the idea of local anesthetic injection. Other people have had bad dental experiences as children. Some people are ashamed of their strong gag reflexes. Others find it difficult to keep their mouths open and sit still while in the dental chair.
Whatever your reason, we want to help break the cycle of avoidance. Patients often choose sedation for longer restorative procedures and oral surgery procedures. Advances in sedation dentistry have completely changed the way that dental care can be provided. Sedation dentistry allows you to relax, sit comfortably, and can make your dental visit more enjoyable.
