Dental Anxiety? Sedation Dentistry May be Right for You

Dentist Serving Buffalo, Lancaster, Orchard Park, New York

Many people avoid the dental care they need to maintain a beautiful and healthy smile because they experience anxiety at the thought of dental procedures. If you’ve put off your regular checkups or other dental treatment due to dental phobia, sedation dentistry may be right for you.

Buffalo, New York, dentist Dr. Larry Evola and the team at Forestream Dental are proud to offer patients the option of sedation dentistry. To learn if you’re a candidate for sedation dentistry, please call Forestream Dental at 716-656-8686; we welcome patients from the greater Buffalo, Lancaster and Orchard Park areas.

Sedation dentistry can be used in a wide range of dental procedures, from your regular exams and teeth cleanings to some cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry treatments. Sedation dentistry can be especially valuable for patients who:

  • Fear dental procedures
  • Experience sensitive teeth
  • Have a strong gag reflex
  • Require multiple dental treatments in a single visit

Sedation dentistry typically entails the use of a prescription sedative prior to your treatment. While it is safe for most patients, it is not the best choice for everyone. Certain health conditions and some prescription medications prevent some patients from being good candidates for sedation dentistry. Dr. Evola will thoroughly review your medical history before recommending sedation dentistry to you.
