For many individuals, a trip to the dentist can evoke feelings of anxiety, fear or discomfort. Whether due to past traumatic experiences, sensory sensitivities or complex dental procedures, these emotions can deter patients from seeking essential dental care, compromising their oral health and overall well-being. Fortunately, sedation dentistry offers a solution to alleviate these concerns and empower patients to receive the dental treatment they need. There is a diverse range of patients who can benefit from sedation dentistry and the transformative impact it can have on their dental experience.

Individuals with Dental Anxiety or Phobia

Dental anxiety is a common phenomenon that affects millions of people worldwide, ranging from mild nervousness to severe phobia. For these individuals, even routine dental procedures can trigger overwhelming fear and apprehension, leading to avoidance of dental visits altogether. Sedation dentistry provides a safe and effective means of managing anxiety, helping patients feel relaxed, calm, and at ease during their dental appointments.

Patients with Special Needs

Individuals with special needs, such as those with physical or cognitive disabilities, may face unique challenges when receiving dental care. Sensory sensitivities, communication barriers and mobility issues can make traditional dental procedures challenging or uncomfortable for these patients. Sedation dentistry offers a gentle and compassionate approach to dental treatment, allowing patients with special needs to undergo procedures comfortably and without distress.

Patients Requiring Extensive Dental Work

Complex or lengthy dental procedures, such as oral surgery, root canal therapy or implant placement, can be daunting for patients, particularly if multiple appointments are required. Sedation dentistry enables patients to undergo extensive dental work with minimal discomfort and anxiety, making the treatment process more manageable and less intimidating.

Individuals with Gag Reflex Sensitivity

For some patients, a sensitive gag reflex can make dental procedures, such as impressions or x-rays, uncomfortable or challenging. Sedation dentistry can help suppress the gag reflex, allowing dental professionals to perform necessary procedures more effectively and without triggering discomfort for the patient.

Children and Pediatric Patients

Dental anxiety is not limited to adults; many children may also experience fear or apprehension when visiting the dentist. Pediatric patients, in particular, may have difficulty sitting still or cooperating during dental procedures, making it challenging for dental professionals to provide optimal care. Sedation dentistry offers a child-friendly approach to dental treatment, helping young patients feel calm, relaxed, and cooperative during their appointments.

Patients with Sensitive Teeth or Gums

Individuals with sensitive teeth or gums may experience discomfort or pain during dental cleanings, fillings, or other procedures. Sedation dentistry can help alleviate discomfort and minimize sensitivity, allowing patients to undergo treatment more comfortably and with less distress.

Sedation dentistry offers a lifeline for patients who may otherwise avoid or delay essential dental care due to anxiety, fear or discomfort. By providing a safe and effective means of managing these emotions, sedation dentistry empowers patients to overcome barriers to treatment and prioritize their oral health and well-being. Sedation dentistry plays a vital role in ensuring that all patients receive the quality dental care they deserve in a comfortable and supportive environment.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Jean R.

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    Sanjay P.

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
