Why Consider Sedation Dentistry?
Our Oklahoma City sedation dentist may recommend sedation for patients who suffer from dental phobia or experience increased anxiety when thinking about dental appointments. This can extend to people who are made uncomfortable by the sights, sounds, or smells of dental offices, and to those who have a fear of needles or medical instruments in general. With sedation dentistry, even the most anxious and fearful patient can become fully relaxed, enabling Dr. Bass to provide a full range of comprehensive dental services.
Sedation dentistry is not just for those who are anxious or fearful of the dentist however. In fact, the advantages of sedation dentistry can just as easily extend to those who have:
- Highly sensitive teeth
- Difficulties getting numb
- An over active gag reflex
- Jaw pain or tenderness
Sedation dentistry can also increase comfort during longer and more involved procedures, and can help reduce strain and other issues during many restorative treatments.
The best way to determine if sedation dentistry is right for you is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Bass. During your consultation Dr. Bass will listen to your concerns, answer any questions about sedation dentistry that you may have, and help you determine the best way to ensure your comfort during your appointment.
