Where can Greenville, SC area patients enjoy pain free dentistry?
When some Greenville, SC area patients think of dentistry, they think of pain. Some patients have had past negative experiences in the dental chair, while others have a fear someone in their “personal space.” Whatever the reason, patients can visit Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, a practice that offers sedation dentistry.
What is sedation dentistry?
How easy would it be to have a pain free visit at the dental office? To relax through invasive procedures and achieve a brand-new smile? Drs. John Palmer and Daniel Knause understand how nerve-wracking visiting the dentist can be, which is why they offer sedation dentistry. This is a service during which patients are sedated for a more positive experience every time they visit. Our practice offers two methods of sedation:
- Oral conscious sedation
- IV sedation
Oral conscious sedation
The first type of sedation is best for mild to moderate anxieties. Oral conscious sedation utilizes prescription sedatives which are given prior to the appointment. Patients take their medication approximately one hour before their visit and arrange transportation to the office. Patients arrive relaxed yet coherent. They can follow directions and answer questions but are cool as a cucumber! The dental procedure is completed, and once patients rest, they may awaken with little to no recollection of their visit.
Patients undergoing extensive procedures or those with severe anxieties may request IV sedation. Vitals are monitored throughout the procedure to ensure safety. IV sedation causes most patients to fall asleep for pain free dental care!
Drs. John Palmer and Daniel Knause are available at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry to offer pain free dentistry for patients in and around Greenville, SC. Contact the practice by phone at (864) 332-4113 or with a visit to 134 Milestone Way.
