Enjoy a More Relaxing Visit with Sedation Dentistry

July 25, 2012

How often has anxiety prevented you from coming to see Dr. Kevin Hogan for a regular exam and cleaning? If your answer to that question is, “Quite often,” our Mt. Pleasant office has a solution that can help you overcome your anxiety and receive the care you need. It’s called sedation dentistry, and with it, you can experience a more comfortable visit than you ever thought you could before.

The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

With sedation dentistry, it’s possible for you to rest comfortably in our Mt. Pleasant office while Dr. Hogan delivers care that will help you reclaim your oral and overall health. What’s more, because our office uses oral conscious sedation, you’ll remain awake enough to respond to questions but will be relaxed enough that you won’t remember anything about your appointment afterwards.

How Does Oral Conscious Sedation Work?

If Dr. Hogan will be helping you with oral conscious sedation, here’s what you can expect.
First, during your consultation appointment, Dr. Hogan will write a prescription for a safe and effective anti-anxiety medication. Then, on the day of your procedure, you’ll take your medication as directed by Dr. Hogan.

By the time you arrive for your procedure, you’ll already be feeling relaxed. Then, as the medication takes full effect, we can begin your appointment. Because you’ll feel so relaxed, your appointment will seem to fly by while in reality Dr. Hogan may actually perform more work than is normally possible during a single visit.

Afterwards, you can look forward to your smile being healthier than it’s been in a long time. And to think, you did it all without ever feeling anxious.
