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.

Greenville, SC dentist offers oral sedation to ease anxiety

Dentist Oral Sedation Greenville SC

It is estimated that 9% to 15% of Americans have anxieties about visiting the dentist. For some guests, the fear is significant enough to keep them from going to the dentist altogether. Not maintaining regular dental appointments negatively affects your dental health. Located in Greenville, SC, Dr. Palmer and the team at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry offer oral sedation to ease guests’ anxieties. Our practice wants you to have a positive visit.

What is oral conscious sedation?


For guests with notable anxiety, management methods are available. Pre-planning is necessary as this form of sedation involves a calming oral medication that is prescribed and taken ahead of time to ensure a smooth appointment. The medication is effective about an hour after it is taken. At this point, guests are awake but drowsy and calm. All of their original fears and anxieties are gone and replaced with a feeling of deep relaxation. Because the drowsiness lasts a few hours, guests need someone to drive them to and from the appointment and to possibly help with any initial post care needs.


Benefits of oral conscious sedation may include the following:

  • The medication leaves guests feeling calm and relaxed so their dental fears disappear and do not interfere with the actual procedure.
  • Guests are awake and can communicate with the dentist during the appointment.
  • Most guests have no memory of the appointment which helps ease their stress for future visits to the dentist.


Remember that your first appointment is a consultation and no treatments will be done. Use this time to discuss your concerns with the dentist. Oral conscious sedation is not necessary for all guests. Some guests simply worry about the unknown in a dental appointment and may benefit from a thorough discussion of what may occur during their treatment. Individuals with more severe fears may need a calming medication.


Ease your dental fears with sedation dentistry. Schedule your appointment with Palmer Distinctive Dentistry today. (864) 879-6494
