Eliminate Dental Anxiety
For many people, going to the dentist is something they avoid unless they have an extremely urgent reason to go. Some of these people have developed dental phobia or dental anxiety due to various reasons including painful dentist visits or embarrassment of how their teeth look.
We offer sedation dentistry to these people with dental anxiety or phobias, so they can visit the dentist again without any worries. Sedation dentistry helps to keep patients relaxed during their appointment, allowing them to receive the dental care they need.
A common form of sedation dentistry that we offer in our office is IV sedation. We administer IV sedation through your veins so it can quickly relax you. You will be safely monitored by Dr. Klym while you’re sedated. Although you’ll be awake during the procedure, IV sedation causes you to forget what happened. This is beneficial for anyone who finds dental procedures traumatizing.
Benefits of Dental Sedation
Aside from treating dental anxiety, sedation dentistry is beneficial for patients who have other conditions or fears as well.
Sedation dentistry can help people who have:
- Gag reflex — some people can’t handle objects going in their mouths
- Sensitive teeth or gums — these people feel pain or discomfort when they feel the dental tools around their teeth or gums
- Difficulty sitting still for long periods of time — some dental procedures can be lengthy
- Undergoing multiple or complex procedures — anyone who may need to have several treatments completed at once can benefit from sedation

Visiting the dentist regularly and receiving any necessary procedures is an important part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. While you can manage your oral health at home, the dentist is able to notice issues and treat them before they become more serious health problems.
