Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is a term that refers to the use of anesthesia during treatment to put patients into a relaxed state, almost like sleep. Sedation dentistry is often used during procedures that require an extensive amount of time in the treatment chair, and sedation is ideal for patients who exhibit dental phobia or have difficulty controlling their movements (this includes children). While sedation dentistry implies that patients are unconscious, this is usually not the case. Some forms of sedation dentistry simply alleviate anxiety or put patients in a sleep-like state, so that little is felt or remembered from the dentistry procedure.

Candidates for Sedation Dentistry

Are you a person who avoids having dental work done because you have a strong aversion to dental treatment? If so, you are not alone. Research shows that the most prevalent reason people put off visiting the dentist is dental anxiety. While your feelings are understandable, delaying dental treatment can cause relatively minor dental problems, such as gum disease, to become major dental issues that require extensive intervention. With the option of sedation dentistry, you can overcome your anxieties and get the treatment you need. Even procedures such as root canals can be non-traumatic. As an added benefit, sedation dentistry allows patients to combine multiple procedures into one or two visits, saving time and limiting inconvenience.

While sedation dentistry is not for everyone, it may be the answer you’ve been seeking for yourself or a loved one. Sedation dentistry could be right for you if you exhibit any of the following:

Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry

At TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Ocala-Florida, we offer a range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry services to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. From teeth whitening to dental implants, our experienced team of dentists is committed to helping you maintain optimal oral health and boost your confidence.

We provide our patients with tooth-colored restorations, believing they make your teeth look more natural and beautiful. We use an intra-oral camera, digital cameras, as well as computer imaging to show patients before-and after images of their smiles. This system gives you a glimpse of the possibilities in improving your smile.

Our cosmetic dentistry services include teeth whitening, veneers, and Invisalign treatment. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of discolored, stained, or yellowed teeth. Our in-office teeth whitening procedure can brighten your smile by several shades in a single visit. Veneers are an effective option for enhancing the appearance of teeth that are chipped, stained, or misshapen. Custom-made from porcelain, veneers are placed over the front surface of your teeth to create a natural-looking and appealing smile. Invisalign treatment is a popular alternative to traditional braces that uses clear aligners to discreetly straighten teeth. This treatment option is ideal for individuals who want a straighter smile without the discomfort or inconvenience of traditional braces.

Our restorative dentistry services include dental implants, crowns, and bridges. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth that are made of biocompatible materials that integrate with your natural bone. They provide a strong and stable foundation for replacement teeth that feel and function just like your natural teeth. Crowns are a type of dental restoration that cover the entire surface of a damaged or decayed tooth. They can improve the strength, function, and appearance of a tooth. Bridges are a type of dental restoration that replace one or more missing teeth. They are anchored to the surrounding teeth for stability and can improve the appearance and function of your smile.
