What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Millions of people put off visiting the dentist every year due to dental anxiety, dental phobia, or hectic schedules. While understandable, this 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 care they need for better oral and overall health.
Don’t avoid the dentist office for 20 years because of your anxiety—let us help you get the care you need!

Sleep Dentistry San Antonio

Among the top sedation dentists, Dr. Jurich and Dr. Stewart have successfully treated hundreds of patients over the years. These patients include those 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 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, you can be treated without discomfort, anxiety, or fears getting in the way.
