Sedation Dentistry Candidates

Fresno Dentist Serving Madera, Clovis, Visalia, Tulare & Nearby Areas in California

Sedation dentistry has long been hailed as an ideal solution for people who struggle with dental phobia. Indeed, patients who are anxious or nervous about their treatment can certainly benefit from sedation dentistry, but so too can those who suffer other common emotional and physical discomforts. The best way to learn if sedation dentistry can improve your comfort and overall experience is by discussing your concerns with Fresno cosmetic dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake.

To learn if you are a good candidate for sedation dentistry, please contact Gregory G. Miyake, DDS online or by calling 559-224-0103 for an initial consultation. We welcome patients from Fresno, Clovis, Madera, Tulare, and all surrounding areas of California.

Conditions Treatable Through Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is a wonderful solution for anxious patients. It is also a very good solution for men and women who struggle with:

  • An overactive gag reflex
  • Highly sensitive teeth
  • Resistance to topical numbing agents
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • TMJ

Sedation dentistry can also be useful for patients who are undergoing a longer or more involved procedure and need assistance in staying still for extended periods of time.

Safety Concerns

Dr. Miyake offers two types of sedation at our Fresno office: oral and nitrous oxide. Both of these sedation options have a proven history of efficacy and safety, though neither one is suitable for every patient.

Some health conditions or current medications may influence the ways these different sedation dentistry options interact with your body’s unique chemistry. Dr. Miyake has over 30 years of experience helping patients choose the right sedation option and will work directly with you to ensure you are provided the best treatment for your needs.

You deserve a strong, healthy, and attractive smile. If physical or emotional discomforts have prevented you from seeking professional dental treatments, please call our Fresno sedation dentist at 559-224-0103 today to schedule your initial consultation and learn how we can help you achieve optimal oral health and beauty.
