What is Sedation Dentistry?

Millions of people put off visiting the dentist every year due to dental anxiety, dental phobia, or hectic schedules, which can result in larger dental issues along the road. Sedation Dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry is a method used to relax patients so they can get the dental work done that they need. No matter how bad you think your teeth are now, it can definitely get worse if you avoid the dentist office for 20 years!

Sleep Dentistry San Antonio

Among the top sedation dentists, Dr. Jurich and Dr. Stewart have personally treated hundreds of patients successfully over the years who have put off dental care in the past, or who have never had a stress-free dentist visit until they came to Jurich Dental. With sedation dentistry, or sleep dentistry, patients will be assisted (through patient comforts and medications) to a relaxed state under the watchful care of sedation dentists. Once the sleep dentistry treatment is working, sedation dentists can quickly and precisely perform needed dental work (whether it’s a routine exam or a crown) without discomfort, anxiety, or fears getting in the way.

Sleep Dentistry Options

With a focus on patient comfort, an outstanding dental track record, and medications to help you relax, patients can get back on the path to optimal oral health without sacrificing comfort. Sedation Dentists have different options when it comes to sleep dentistry, including:
