Going to the dentist can cause anxiety in many people, whether it’s generalized anxiety about visiting the dentist, sensitive teeth or a bad reaction to standard numbing medications used by dentists to alleviate pain during dental procedures.
At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry in Birmingham, Alabama, we strive to provide a comfortable, welcoming environment for our patients. Dr. Koch utilizes sedation dentistry to alleviate stress associated with dental visits to ensure that our patients enjoy a relaxed experience.
Sedation dentistry, or sleep dentistry, allows the patient to relax into a consciously sedative, near sleep-like state. Most patients state that they felt relaxed throughout their mind and body, as any anxiety or fear they may have been experiencing slipped away. Sedation dentistry allows Dr. Koch and our friendly, knowledgeable staff to more easily perform procedures according to the patient’s smile analysis and makeover treatment plan.
In addition, sedation dentistry is a wonderful alternative for patients with overdue dental work or in need of several procedures, such as laser dentistry, dental implants, porcelain veneers, or dental crowns.
Dr. Koch recommends sedation dentistry for any patients who may experience stress or anxiety about going to the dentist. As an experienced cosmetic dentist in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Koch provides patients with a renewed sense of self-confidence and beautiful smiles.
At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, we understand that many people have questions about sedation dentistry, its uses and its effectiveness.
Whether you have a fear of the dentist or sensitive teeth, sedation dentistry is an incredible alternative for patients who don’t respond well to standard numbing medications. During your smile analysis with Dr. Koch, make sure to ask if sedation dentistry is a recommended alternative for your dental treatments at our cosmetic dental office in Birmingham, Alabama.
