Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is one innovation that’s truly improved the quality of patient care. You see, many people avoid going to the dentist for years because they have fears, discomfort, or have had a bad experience in the past. If you see a Charleston, SC or James Island, SC dentist who offers sedation dentistry, you’ll be able to receive the dental care you need without the worry and anxiety that so many experience. At the office of Dale Probst, DMD, we help patients stay calm, relaxed, and comfortable at their appointments using nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation.

When can sedation dentistry be used?

Any dental appointment can be made easier through sedation. Some patients experience extreme anxiety before a routine dental exam, while others may get very nervous before a filling or other procedure. Whatever your feelings about going to the dentist, don’t be too embarrassed to ask about sedation. Dr. Probst and his staff never judge. Our only concern is that you get the dental care you need to have strong, healthy teeth for life.

Which type of sedation do I need?

Experience counts when it comes to sedation. Over the past 20 years, Dr. Probst has completed numerous continuing education hours and other advanced training in sedation dentistry. Dr. Probst has worked with hundreds of patients for this kind of treatment. He’ll evaluate your situation, your overall health, and the type of procedure you’re having done. Then he’ll recommend either nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, or IV sedation. Of course, your questions and concerns will be fully addressed before anything takes place.
