Anyone who is uncomfortable at the dentist is a candidate for sedation dentistry. Our goal is for you to be as comfortable as possible, so if you feel anxious every time you go to the dentist, sedation dentistry is a great way to feel comfortable and at ease. Patients who are very busy or have a strong gag reflex may also be good candidates for sedation dentistry.
However, patients must be in good physical and mental health in order to be eligible for sedation dentistry. Patients who have a history of cardiac disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or respiratory disease may not be approved for sedation dentistry, for fear of putting their health in danger.
