Whether you are dreading a specific dental procedure, or you are simply nervous about your next visit to the dentist, dental sedation may be a good option for you.
Dr. David C Montz provides a variety of dental sedation options that can ease your fear of the dentist. Our team can tailor your dental sedation to your unique level of dental anxiety. After a consultation, Dr. Montz can advise you about what might be best based on your needs.
You may be wondering: Is dental sedation right for me? If dental sedation soothes your dental anxiety and gives you the confidence to schedule a needed dental procedure, then it may be the right course of action for you. Our team would love to discuss your concerns with you and help you determine which level of sedation will help you overcome your fear of the dentist.
Are there reasons for dental sedation besides dental anxiety?
Yes! Although fear of the dentist is the #1 reason to consider dental sedation, you may also be a candidate if you suffer from pain, sensitivity, or other issues that make it difficult to sit through a dental procedure.
You might be a candidate for dental sedation if:
- You have serious fear of the dentist or stressful dental anxiety
- You have had traumatic experiences with past dental visits
- You’re worried about a specific upcoming procedure that you want or need
- You have a low pain threshold or high tooth sensitivity
- You suffer from jaw pain
- You have a sensitive gag reflex
- You have difficulty becoming numb with local anesthesia
- You would like to accomplish multiple or complicated procedures in one sitting
What options are available to me?
Your options may depend on your unique fear of the dentist or other dental needs. Dr. Montz is qualified to administer oral conscious sedation, laughing gas, or intravenous sedation.
During your consultation, you and sedation dentist Dr. Montz can discuss whether or not dental sedation might be helpful for you. Most patients can safely qualify for oral conscious sedation, laughing gas, or even intravenous sedation.
