Many patients suffer from dental anxiety and do not look forward to any dental appointments, much less having dental work performed. At Park West Dental Associates, we can help manage your anxiety with oral conscious sedation.
Oral conscious sedation helps you to feel relaxed and soothed, while still remaining awake and aware of what’s going on around you. Dr. Hogan will prescribe you a medication to take before your appointment to allow it to start working. You’ll need a relative or trusted friend to drive you to and from your appointment.
You’ll feel relaxed when you arrive at our office, allowing Dr. Hogan the opportunity to restore your smile. Oral conscious sedation is also a great solution if you have a sensitive gag reflex as it helps your body to stay calm while undergoing dental work. In some cases, you’ll be so relaxed that Dr. Hogan can perform more work than he could in a normal dental visit, speeding up your treatment process.
If you’ve been avoiding or delaying dental work because of your dental anxiety, you should consider oral conscious sedation. This is a great way to reduce your anxiety while still getting the dental work you need for good oral health. Please give us a call today to learn more or set up your sedation consultation.
At Park West Dental Associates, Dr. Kevin Hogan provides quality comprehensive dental care to you and your family. Our Mt. Pleasant, SC dental office serves patients from Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, Daniel Island, and West Ashley. Call us today to schedule your next appointment.
