Patients ask, ‘How safe is sedation dentistry near me in Buffalo?’

Sedation dentistry services from dentist in Buffalo

Are you one of the millions of Americans who avoids going to the dentist due to anxiety? Avoiding the dentist negatively impacts a patient’s dental health. Sedation dentistry enables patients to maintain their oral health safely and without stress. If you are searching for sedation dentistry near me, look no further than Dr. Gordon Kent and the team at Smile Center in Buffalo.

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry comes in different forms but involves the use of medications to help patients remain calm during their dental procedures. Although most people think of sedation as only for patients with strong fears, it may also be recommended for the following reasons:

  • The patient is in need of a significant amount of dental work.
  • Low pain tolerance makes it difficult for the patient to endure dental appointments.
  • Sensitive teeth make dental procedures more painful.
  • Patients, such as children, are unable to sit still in the chair especially for longer procedures.

A safe, pain-free option for dental procedures

At Smile Center, we cater to cowards. We want everyone to feel comfortable and confident in their oral health and in their dental visits. We utilize state-of-the-art facilities and materials to provide patients with top dental care. For patients needing sedation, we offer laughing gas, enteral sedation, and IV sedation. Each provides a different level of sedation so the most appropriate method is chosen for individual patients. The goal is to provide a calm experience and environment in which patients can relax while protecting their smiles.

Safe and individualized sedation dentistry

Regardless of the type used, sedation dentistry is safe in the hands of our experienced dental team. There are few risks involved. We follow strict licensing requirements in order to offer these treatments. Our experienced team reviews your medical history. The proper sedation dosage is administered based upon your individual needs, including your health and age.
