Don’t Put Off Dental Concerns Out of Fear
Fear of the dentist, whether it be because of pain, bad experiences or embarrassment, is a very common thing. Over 36 percent of those who don’t visit a dentist regularly say it is due to fear. When you avoid having your dental concerns treated, they don’t just go away. Problems like gum recession or periodontal disease get worse with time, eventually leading to tooth loss. We can help you put dental fear and anxiety behind you with the use of sedation dentistry so you can get the care you need.
We Offer Advanced IV Sedation for the Ultimate in Comfort
Dr. Segal has the specialization required to offer patients IV sedation. This is an advanced sedation technique commonly referred to as conscious sedation. Sedative medication is administered intravenously and you will likely not feel any pain or remember the procedure at all. Patients commonly fall asleep but are easily woken and can respond to commands. This form of sedation requires advanced education and certification, which Dr. Segal has taken in order to provide the utmost care.
Block Pain with Effective Local Anesthesia
We also offer local anesthesia during procedures to block pain and make treatment easier. A local anesthetic is injected at the site of treatment. The area will then become numb to pain and you will likely only feel slight pressure during treatment. This is a common form of sedation dentistry that can be used for any number of procedures from gum grafting to dental implants.
