How do you know sedation dentistry is for me?

Dr. Magid will have a consultation with you to determine whether you are a candidate for sedation dentistry.

Patients must be between the ages of 18 and 80 to have sedation dentistry. We will perform a careful screening to determine if you have any medical conditions that may prevent you from being a candidate. We have found that several characteristics apply to patients who benefit from sedation dentistry.

People who have....

• High anxiety about dentistry
• Traumatic dental experience in the past
• Difficulty getting numb
• A strong gag reflex
• TMJ troubles and cannot open their mouth for extensive periods
• Complex dental problems
• Very sensitive teeth
• Anxiety over needles, noises, or smells in dental office
• No desire for multiple visits
