Millions of people are scared to go to a dental office. In some cases, this phobia is so severe people will avoid going at all costs to the detriment of their oral health. Fortunately, you have nothing to fear with our periodontist because we provide sedation dentistry. Our methods will make you more comfortable or make you go to sleep, so you can do what is best for your teeth and gums.

Great for People With Certain Needs

Some people have an overly sensitive gag reflex that makes dental work tough. Additionally, people with autism, sensory processing disorders or other issues with the nervous system may have trouble sitting in a chair for long periods of time. With sedation, these patients will be able to sit comfortably while the periodontist works on the teeth. Sedation is an excellent method for children and adults alike.

Faster Procedures

In the past, some people would need to schedule multiple appointments to fix an oral health problem. This is naturally tough due to people’s work or school schedules. However, when you are comfortable enough to sit still for over an hour, then the dental professional can fix your smile in one sitting. This allows you to save both time and money.

Options for All Comfort Levels

Sedation dentistry is not a one-size-fits-all solution. We have different methods available based on your needs. You can take mild oral sedation, which will make you drowsy during the procedure. You will then be able to wake up normally and drive yourself home. However, people with more extreme cases may need something heavier. We provide that, too, so you can go into deep sedation and not remember a thing.

Our Goal Is Your Comfort

Dr. Steven N. Rice will make sure you are comfortable at all times. For excellent, caring and trustworthy services, call Advanced Laser Gum Institute to start the new year off right. Call our dental office today!
