Patients at any age with histories of fear, anxiety, dental or needle phobia, apprehension and doubt can range from slight to debilitating. We offer anesthesia services to help you overcome fear and finally enjoy good oral health.
The special needs population is diverse and their needs for anesthesia are just as multifactorial. We are particularly experienced in treating special needs patients and understand the unique dispositions and challenges they present.
Complex or Extensive Treatment Plan
Whether it’s for extensive restorative work, periodontal surgery, root canal therapy, oral surgery, or implants/prosthesis placements, the number of appointments and amount of time can be drastically reduced by utilizing dental anesthesia as an adjunct to the dental procedures you are receiving.
Pre-Cooperative or Uncooperative Children
If you're a parent, you may feel like you’re out of options if you have a pre-cooperative or uncooperative child that has extensive decay or has been unsuccessful with behavior therapy, nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), restraints, and/or oral conscious sedation. Utilizing a dental anesthesiologist can be the solution to providing the dental care your child needs.
Local Anesthesia Allergy/Immunity or Severe Gag Reflex
The mouth is highly vascular and innervated, where pain can be perceived variously by different people. Whether you are immune/tolerant to the effects of local anesthesia or have a higher sensitivity to pain, satisfiable dental treatment can be delivered with the use of sedation and general anesthesia as an adjunct to your procedure.
Unique Medical Conditions
Physical and mental ailments such as contractures or muscular deficiencies in Cerebral Palsy, uncontrolled movements in Parkinson’s disease, and psychiatric/neurological disorders can make it an unsafe working environment for dental providers and the patient alike. Avoid any potential aggravation, confusion, or hazardous treatment involved with the nuances of treating a patient with any special medical conditions and inquire about utilizing dental sedation and anesthesia services from us today.
