At Culp Dental, we understand that anxiety may prevent you from seeing your dentist regularly. That’s why we offer some forms of sedation dentistry in Rock Hill, SC — to help apprehensive, fearful patients relax during dental procedures so they can get the treatment they need.
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help your body and mind relax so you feel peaceful during treatment. Unless you get general anesthesia, you are awake — but relaxed — during your procedure.
Sedation is most appropriate for dental patients with a real fear or anxiety of the dentist, those with a low pain threshold, patients who cannot sit still, those with a bad gag reflex and patients requiring an extensive amount of dental work.
Sedation is generally safe when administered by an experienced dentist like the ones at Culp Dental. However, you should always tell your dentist about all your health conditions and any medications you are taking. Discuss any concerns and risks with your dentist before proceeding.
