Sedation Dentistry Candidates By Danny O'Keefe D.D.S. on June 07, 2011


Many people are afraid to visit the dentist or may be nervous about regular dental visits. We can understand this since dental work can be a bit perplexing to people and, let’s face it, you do sometimes feel a bit weird when someone is fiddling with tiny instruments in your mouth. If you are one of those people who suffers from dental anxiety or dental phobia, then sedation dentistry may be the right option for you. At our Jackson area cosmetic dentistry office, we are proud to offer patients sedation dentistry in order to make their experience at our office as comfortable as possible.

The Best Candidates

So who are the best candidates for sedation dentistry? As mentioned above, people who suffer from anxiety over the idea of visiting the dentist are great candidates for sedation dentistry. In some cases, people suffer from major fear of the dentist, so much so that it’s debilitating when they go to an office. With sedation dentistry, their minds will be put at ease.

But there are other people out there who are great candidates for Jackson sedation dentistry as well. Take people with poor gag reflexes. Sometimes they are unable to handle keeping their mouths open for long periods of time and cannot stay still. In such cases, sedation dentistry can help them remain calm and relaxed, allowing dentists to do the work necessary.

Trouble Keeping Still?

If you have trouble keeping still for long periods of time, sedation dentistry is certainly a good option to consider. You’ll be able to remain calm and still for the duration of your visit. This will make it much easier for your dentist to perform the dental work that you need.

For more information about dental sedation as well as other topics concerning dental health and dental care, contact our cosmetic dentistry office in Flowood today. We look forward to discussing these matters with you in greater detail.
