Please ask yourself these questions.

  • Do you suffer from a high amount of anxiety or stress when going to the dentist?
  • Does this anxiety/stress cause you to avoid seeing your dentist altogether?

If this sounds like you, then you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry. We specialize in treating people, like you, who have an extreme dental fear and experience a high level of anxiety – no matter what the reason – when visiting their dentist.

At Central Dentists Springfield Lakes your dentist’s goal is to help you get the dental treatment you need, while minimizing any emotional trauma. Sedation dentistry is commonly used during such routine procedures as teeth cleaning and checkups. By using special dentist-supplied sedatives, anxious patients can get the necessary dental treatment they require. When taken, these sedatives don’t put you to sleep but eliminate your anxiety – so you only have a comfortable and relaxing experience while at the dentist.

While under sedation, you will be in a deeply relaxed state and will be responsive when spoken to. Your vital signs are monitored throughout the procedure while your dentist completes his work. At the end of the treatment, you’ll have little or no memory of what was accomplished.

Sedation Dentistry is safe, easy and effective! And with sedation dentistry, we can perform any dental procedure that you need! The whole goal of sedation dentistry is to help you achieve your goal of complete dental health.
