Many people fear going to the dentist, and this can have harmful effects on oral and overall health. To avoid needing more extensive dental work, which just causes more fear and distress, it is important to regularly see your dentist and get necessary dental work. Goose Creek Dentists Dr. Barganier, Dr. Bale and Dr. Clark offer their patients with dental fear an option to help make their visits much less stressful.
Goose Creek Dental Care offers their patients the option of sedation dentistry to help with easing dental fears. Sedation dentistry is the practice of using sedation methods to relax and reduce anxiousness; in some cases it can even induce a dream-like state. Goose Creek Dentists and our highly trained staff offer IV (intravenous) sedation to fearful patients.This form of sedation is an injection delivered directly into the patient’s bloodstream. This form of sedation dentistry allows the Goose Creek Dental Care team to continually adjust the level of sedation as necessary throughout the dental treatment. It is particularly good for those who suffer from extreme fear and/or need extensive dental work.
It is important to note that patients are generally conscious and awake during these treatments; IV sedation is not the same thing as anesthesia used by doctors performing surgeries.
