Sedation dentistry is a valuable option for patients who experience anxiety when seeing a general dentist in Mount Pleasant, SC. Dr. Kevin Hogan and the rest of our care team want each of our patients to have a comfortable experience receiving care at our clinic. Sedative services can help relieve mild, moderate, and even severe dental anxiety. We offer treatment solutions that will help you achieve your personal dental care goals.

Is Sedation Right for Me?

If you have experienced any of these symptoms during past dental care appointments, you might benefit from selecting sedation services:

  • Fear of needles
  • Severe gag reflex
  • Difficulty responding to numbing medication
  • Past trauma regarding dental health
  • Very sensitive teeth or oral tissue
  • Complex dental health issues
  • The need to complete treatment in a limited time
  • Embarrassment regarding your teeth
  • Fear and anxiety regarding the dental clinic environment in general

Conscious Oral Sedation

Patients of all ages and from all walks of life experience some degree of dental anxiety; it is more common than you might imagine. Even patients who do not experience dental anxiety may wish for a more stress-free appointment. We offer conscious oral sedation to our patients. Choosing this service lets Dr. Hogan work faster, so you can enjoy the benefits of a healthy mouth even sooner.

Conscious oral sedation causes you to feel deeply relaxed and calm. You remain conscious throughout the experience; you can make choices and express your wishes. Some people fall asleep or have no memory of their appointment. The sedated experience can last for a few hours, so you will need someone to drive you home after your appointment.

Experience the Care You Deserve

Everyone deserves to have great dental health. If fear or anxiety is holding you back, sedation dentistry may be the right solution.  Make an appointment with Dr. Hogan today by calling (843) 639-5044.
