Research shows that almost 30% of our population avoids going to the dentist due to fear. Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, we are now able to help those who suffer from dental fear, anxiety or phobia with sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is the most common technique used in the United States to help eliminate or minimize patient fears. If the thought of visiting the dentist makes you so nervous that it prevents you from going at all, sedation dentistry provided at the office of Larry Saylor, DMD could be right for you.

No Needles, No Problem
The technique we use requires no needles, so you can gain the care you need with no discomfort or anxiety. Dr. Saylor is an understanding and compassionate dentist, and he has incorporated sedation dentistry into his Tampa practice to help his patients gain the care they need without the added phobia. Oral conscious sedation is perfect for those who:
- Suffer dental fear, phobia or intense anxiety
- Are short on time and require multiple treatments in one appointment
- Are prone to gagging during even routine dental appointments
- Are uncomfortable around needles
One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Therefore, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments.
What Is Involved in Sedation Dentistry?
The goal of sedation dentistry is to keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout your entire appointment. Because sedation dentistry at our office doesn’t involve any needles, you can expect to feel at ease from start to finish. Oral conscious sedation is often preferred among patients who suffer anxiety from visiting the dentist because it’s a non-invasive measure that eases them into a much more relaxed state. During your first appointment, Dr. Saylor will help you learn more about what is involved in the process and how it can benefit you.
