Birmingham, AL Dental Sedation

Does the pure thought of the dentist make you shiver? Constantly putting off your dental exams? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Phobias of the dentist are nothing new. But did you know there may be an option for you to receive painless, anxiety free dentistry? It’s true! Sedation dentistry may be your answer. Fortunately, at Dr. Kevin Sims Periodontal we offer sedation dentistry in Birmingham and Hoover, AL to help patients receive anxiety free dentistry.

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation allows dental offices to assist in managing patients’ fears and phobias through anesthetics. Anesthesia is administered to a patient prior to having dental work done to dull pain, relax and ease anxiety. Techniques vary depending on the patient, work being done and often time age.

Anxiety-free dentistry in Hoover, AL

Dr. Kevin Sims Periodontist understands the long time fears, anxieties and phobias that have come with visiting the dentist. We offer complimentary nitrous oxide sedation, also known as “laughing gas”. This method of conscious sedation is the most common type of dental sedation. “Laughing gas” is administered by breathing in combined nitrous oxide and oxygen through a mask. Your Birmingham periodontist will control the amount given to you. Dr. Kevin Sims Periodontist often uses a comfort syringe in conjunction with the nitrous oxide as it improves efficiency.

The beauty about the way we administer Dental Intravenous (IV) sedation is it can safely be used for nearly all dental procedures. Hoover, AL Periodontist Dr. Kevin Sims wants you to be as comfortable as possible at all times.
