Well, did you know that not all dentists do sedation dentistry? However, when you choose our Cincinnati sedation dentist, Dr. Tom Hedge, you can take advantage of sedation dentistry.
Who can get sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is perfect for those who:
- Have a sensitive gag reflex, which makes it difficult for our dentist to perform effectively and efficiently.
- Need a more in-depth procedure completed, such as a root canal or dental implants.
- Have dental fears or dental phobias, in which case the patient would feel high anxiety and stress during their appointment. Having dental fears or phobias can cause some patients to procrastinate when scheduling their dental appointments, thus delaying treatment, and worsening their condition.
- Have neck or back problems that makes it difficult for them to sit for extended periods
- Do not experience significant numbing effects after we use local anesthetics on them.
