Are you or a family member anxious about going to the dentist? Has a past experience with pain or discomfort caused you to start panicking when you think about having your teeth worked on? Have you neglected going to the dentist and fear the amount of work that might need to be completed?
If your past or current situation is causing a lot of dread, we offer options available to alleviate your fear and reduce (or completely eliminate) your pain with the required care. Oral sedation (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless Custer-area dental patients calmly undergo dental treatment. It has been used safely in various forms since the 1800s.
To discuss sleep dentistry, call Destination Dentistry at 605-673-2011 to schedule a no-pressure consultation. Our knowledgeable staff will explain your sedation options and answer all of your questions.
It is important to understand the difference between topical analgesics and sedation which are used both alone and simultaneously. Analgesics help numb the gums and nerves connected with your teeth so you don’t feel the pain. Sedation medications impact the nervous system and bring a feeling of peace and relaxation. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are reserved but still awake, or decide on general anesthesia which renders you completely unconscious. Together, these two solutions dramatically improve the treatment experience for patients suffering from dental anxiety, a very common condition.
Regardless of the type and level of sedation you decide to use, we will proceed with patience and understanding. Oral sedation assists in making your dental visit relaxed so you can treat all of your dental issues and restore your health. Taking care of dental caries, infections, and other pressing problems brings peace of mind and reduces the risk of further damage, including tooth loss.
Destination Dentistry in Custer is committed to oral health and complete patient satisfaction from the first visit through completion of treatment. We offer first rate dental care including sedation dentistry, tooth-colored fillings and cosmetic dentistry.
