Do you treat patients with a strong gag reflex?
Many people have a strong gag reflex and find it difficult to tolerate dental procedures, especially toward the back of the mouth. This may mean that patients put off necessary dental treatment and preventive appointments such as cleanings and exams because it feels uncomfortable or even embarrassing to get through any procedure without uncomfortable convulsions from gagging. It may even make it impossible to complete restorative dentistry safely.
At Trinity Dental Care, we do our best to provide the highest level of comfort for every patient and extend that mission to our patients who have a gag reflex that may make treatment impossible. Many patients find that sedation dentistry not only relaxes their minds during treatment, but can also relax an overactive gag reflex. This allows our dentists and hygienists to work more effectively, efficiently, and provides you with peace of mind and greater comfort knowing that nothing will stand in the way between you and a healthy smile.
We offer oral sedation dentistry here in our Westwood, NJ dental office. Prescription medication will be administered before your appointment begins and will last the duration of your appointment.
