“I have a crown that needed to be replaced right away,” Ron said. “I also know that sedation dentistry makes having my teeth taken care of a lot more pleasant. I’ve just moved to the South Shore. Where can you get sedation dentistry services in the South Shore area?”
Sedation dentistry is the use of medication to alleviate the feelings of anxiety some people experience during dental treatment. Reducing anxiety is a good idea because it means you’ll experience less pain and heal faster than you would if you were highly anxious during treatment. Because every person has a unique medical history and anxiety levels differ, there’s no one size fits all route to sedation dentistry. Some patients are more than fine with a minimal amount of sedation – just enough to take the edge off – while others, due to the nature of the procedure or because they experience truly severe anxiety – require general anesthesia.
Sedation dentistry is available in our Quincy dental practice. In fact, Dr. Steven Brustin was one of the first dental practices in the state to offer general anesthesia. His personal commitment to comfortable dentistry has been a guiding principal of our Quincy dental practice, and today, we have a team of 4 highly experienced dentists who are thoroughly familiar with sedation dentistry.
