Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Conscious sedation at Greenville dentist helps put guests at ease in the dentist’s chair

Visiting the dentist is a fear that many people have, often preventing them from getting the necessary check-ups or restorative treatments needed to keep their mouths healthy. Conscious sedation, which will help you relax while undergoing treatment, is offered at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville.


The fear over seeing a dentist can have drastic consequences on not only your oral health, but also to your overall health. Tooth decay and tooth loss can be painful and costly to repair over time. Gum disease, is not only painful, but studies now link it to potentially life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Dr. John Palmer and the team at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry are specially trained to work with guests who are fearful of sitting in the dentist’s chair. Conscious sedation is available for any dental procedure, from routine cleanings to teeth whitening and restorative dental work. A thorough consultation will help you decide if and when you should consider sedation.


Sedation dentistry is also called sleep dentistry, but this is misleading, as you are awake or conscious during the procedure. There are various levels of sedation, from minimal sedation leaving you relaxed and awake, to general anesthesia, in which you are unconscious during the procedure. With conscious sedation, you’ll feel no stress, fear, or discomfort. You may slur your words when speaking, and you will have little or no memory of the appointment after leaving the dentist’s office. With all levels of sedation, you’ll still need a local anesthetic, which numbs the site where we will be working to ensure comfort.


Palmer Distinctive Dentistry uses Triazolam, which is a widely used prescription oral sedative that is extremely safe and poses little to no side effects. Guests will need a ride to and from the appointment as a safety precaution and they need to be monitored until the sedative has worn off.


If visiting the dentist office for a checkup or to get work done makes you a little nervous, be sure to consult with Dr. Palmer at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville and ask about conscious sedation. Don’t let your fear of the dentist keep you from enjoying a healthy mouth. Call (864) 879-6494 today.
