Dr. Kelly believes that everyone deserves healthy teeth, and dental anxiety should not cause people to avoid getting the treatment they need. To help patients cope with this fear, Dental Center of the Carolinas offers oral sedation dentistry.

Fear of visiting the dentist? Lose your fear of treatment with Sedation Dentistry.

If the thought of dental treatment fills you with dread, then consider sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry enables patients who have a low pain threshold, very sensitive teeth, a gag reflex, or moderate-to-severe anxiety the ability to undergo dental treatment.

Being sedated while you have dental work will relieve your anxiety and make you less aware, or totally unaware, of the procedure being carried out. Your fear will be a thing of the past.

Talk with Dr. Kelly who can review your options from simple sedation treatments to more complex techniques, such as IV sedation. He'll make your dentistry anxiety-free.

ABOUT

SEDATION DENTISTRY

Sedation (Sleep) Dentistry

What is the procedure?

Sedation dentistry is used to help patients relax while they are having treatment. Medication will be used but you usually remain awake, unless you opt for a general anesthetic which will make you sleep.

Sedation options are as follows:
A low level of sedation – you will feel completely relaxed but will not be asleep.
Moderate sedation – you will feel more relaxed, even drowsy and although not fully asleep, you may not remember much afterwards.
Deep sedation – you will wake up easily but will be more or less unconscious.
General anesthetic – you will be fully asleep/unconscious and will not be aware of anything.

What are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

Being sedated while you have dental work completed brings with it many benefits. Your anxiety will be relieved, you will be less aware or totally unaware of the procedure being carried out and your fear will be a thing of the past.

Who Should Consider Sedation Dentistry?

If the thought of dental treatment fills you with dread, then sedation dentistry is well worth considering. Whether you have a phobia or something less, by allowing your dentist to sedate you, dental treatment can be carried out quickly and efficiently. Talk to your dentist about sedation dentistry if you have problems with any of the following:
A fear of dentists
Low pain threshold
Very sensitive teeth
A gag reflex that causes problems during treatment
Need to have a vast amount of work carried out
If you qualify as a patient who experiences anxiety, our team can help you determine an appropriate course of sedation dentistry that meets your needs.
