You might be shocked to discover how many people contact our dental office and tell us they have some level of dental anxiety. Much of their fear of the dentist comes from a past negative experience or a traumatic memory from childhood. If you are one of the people who try to avoid the dentist at all costs, you will be happy to know that patient comfort and personalized dental care are part of most modern dental practices.

If you are searching for sedation dentistry in Mount Pleasant, SC, our dental office might be the perfect place for you. Not only do we offer pain-free and worry-free dentistry, but we also have sedation options for our patients who prefer a little help when it comes to relaxing during their dental procedure.

Sometimes called “sleep dentistry” or “relaxation dentistry,” sedation dentistry in our Mount Pleasant dental office is safer and often preferred to general sedation, which is most commonly used during surgical procedures.

Sleep is a bit of a misnomer because you will actually remain awake throughout your appointment, but your awareness will drift away, and some patients actually do doze off for short periods.

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits is that your sense of time will make it feel like your appointment flies by, and most people have little to no memory of the procedure itself. You will need to have a trusted friend or family member drive you home from your appointment and spend some time with you while you recover.

Sedation dentistry in our Mount Pleasant, SC dental office makes it possible for those patients who have avoided dental treatment in the past to get the care they need for a healthy smile and body. 

Avoiding dental treatment often leads to worsening conditions and can even cause tooth loss, so give us a call if you want a worry-free dental experience.
