Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?

Posted .

Anxiety about visiting the dentist is a pretty common issue. Many adults in America have such a bad phobia of visiting the dentist that it prevents them from getting the dental care they need in order to stay healthy.

If this describes you in any way, then it’s high time you take a second to look at sedation dentistry. It can change your life and enable you to have the oral health you deserve.

What is it?

Sedation dentistry is the term that refers to undergoing dental procedures under various levels of sedation. The levels of sedation depend largely on your personal anxiety problems and the complication of the procedure which Dr. John Hobgood is performing.

How does it work?

Sedation dentistry is a simple procedure. You’ll be given sedatives either orally – like laughing gas – or through an IV, if you need general anesthesia for something like wisdom tooth removal.

Sedation dentistry is a safe method of practicing dentistry, and even has approval from the American Dental Association.
