How does Sedation Dentistry change the patient experience?
Approximately 9 to 15 percent of the U.S. population avoids going to the dentist from dental fear or anxiety.* This phobia may be the result of a bad past experience, a bad gag reflex, fear of the dental drill, or fear of the unknown or pain. Seeing how dental fear has affected so many of his patients, Dr. Steven Van Scoyoc offers several levels of sedation dentistry to meet the unique needs of each patient, including oral sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation for more complex surgical procedures.Schedule Your Consultation
Benefits of Dental Sedation
Sedation dentistry is changing how patients receive dental care. They can now experience a more relaxing, calm and enjoyable dental experience. By numbing the pain, or helping the patient relax with one of Dr. Van Scoyoc’s dental sedation options, more can be achieved in one visit, and more complex procedures such as dental implants can be completed much more efficiently. This helps alleviate fear of the unknown or pain so you can get the gum disease treatment or dental care you need.
Dr. Van Scoyoc is certified to administer IV sedation himself, which allows to him control your level of sedation throughout the procedure. This makes the procedure much safer and more comfortable.
