Don’t Let Dental Fear Prevent the Care You Need and Smile You Desire

Buffalo-area dentist Dr. Larry Evola understands that many people feel anxiety at the thought of a dental visit, whether it’s the sounds and sensations of the routine dental care you need to maintain good oral health or a cosmetic dentistry procedure to provide you with a bright, beautifully aligned smile. That’s why Dr. Evola and the friendly team at Forestream Dental are proud to offer a comfortable, relaxing environment and the option of sedation dentistry.

Sedation Dentistry vs. Sleep Dentistry

You may have heard the terms “sedation dentistry” and “sleep dentistry” used interchangeably, but these two phrases refer to entirely different procedures. Sedation dentistry involves the use of a safe sedative that is taken about an hour before your appointment. During your dental appointment, you will be deeply relaxed but still awake and responsive to questions and requests. The sedative generally lasts a total of six hours, leaving you with little memory of your treatment.

Sedation Dentistry

For many people, a trip to the dentist’s office is a daunting event. Dental anxiety can be triggered by several different factors, such as a traumatic past experience with another dentist, or a sensitive gag reflex that makes dental work difficult. No matter what lies behind your dental fears, we offer a solution that can help you fully relax in the dental chair: sedation dentistry.
