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.

What you need to know about sedation dentistry from a dentist in Greer

about sedation dentistry from a dentist in Greer

If merely hearing the word, ‘dentist’ uttered makes you weak in the knees and a little bit queasy, you aren’t alone. You are one of the almost 145 million people who have a fear of the dentist, or odontophobia. This fear can encompass a fear of the dentist (those white coats can be a little intimidating), a fear of dental procedures (those shiny metal drills and the noises they make can be scary), or a fear of both.

Despite your fears, your oral health requires regular visits to the dentist and may require dental treatments or procedures. You can brush your teeth three times per day and floss twice per day, but unless you visit the dentist at least twice a year, you are running the risk of developing dental conditions that could have been prevented by early detection and treatment.

Sedation dentistry is a form of dentistry that does not actually put the guest to sleep. Before any dental procedures are planned, you will visit the dentist and have a time of Q & A. Once you’re comfortable with your options and the dentist you have chosen, you can schedule a second visit.

During your visit, you will receive prescribed oral sedatives that will put you into a deeply relaxed state. Because you are sedated, you are essentially unaware of the procedures that are performed or the passing of time. Many guests find themselves feeling relaxed and refreshed after treatment– as if they’d taken a very good nap.

During your time under sedation, the dentist can perform more during a single visit than a typical non-sedation visit. This means that you can get the oral care you need without dealing with the fears that can arise. Whether you need a simple dental cleaning and exam, a tooth extraction, dental implants, or some other dental treatment, you can experience the care and skill of a dentist who specializes in sedation dentistry.

If you believe that you experience odontophobia but still understand your need for a necessary dental treatment, you need to speak with a dentist in Greer who offers his guests sedation dentistry. When you contact Dr. John Palmer and his friendly staff of dental professionals at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, you can be rest assured that you are in good hands.
