For patients who have anxiety and fear about visiting their dentist, sedation dentistry is a game changer. These patients may have had a negative dental experience in the past or as a child. There are also patients with a low pain threshold, or severe tooth sensitivity, who are fearful that they will experience pain and discomfort during treatments. Sometimes anxious patients would rather suffer with a toothache than seek treatment from their dentists!
Sedation dentistry can be used for invasive and even non-invasive dental procedures, from fillings and extractions to teeth cleaning. At Trinity Hills Dental we can provide oral sedation. You are still awake with oral sedation, but you are more relaxed throughout the appointment.
We would be happy to talk to you about your interest in oral sedation for any dental visits you may feel anxious about!
