What Are My Options If I Have Dental Anxiety?
Many people suffer with dental anxiety, but unfortunately you could be causing yourself more pain, anxiety, and money in the future. Dr. Kevin Hogan can provide you with sedation dentistry in Mt. Pleasant, SC.
Dr. Hogan provides patients with oral conscious sedation, which means oral sedation will be administered and you will be very relaxed for several hours. You will feel so relaxed, that you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
How Does Sedation Work?
Some people are so relaxed with oral sedation, they can fall asleep during their visit or not have the memory of ever coming into the office. Dr. Hogan will be able to provide more treatment in one visit than is usually possible due to your state of extreme comfort and relaxation. Even if you do not have high dental anxiety, sedation dentistry can provide you with a more comfortable and stress free visit to the dentist.
