Keeping Patients Calm Since 2001

Published on November 26, 2021

sleep dentistry Tampa

Are you or a family member nervous about going to the dentist? Has a past experience with pain or discomfort caused you to start panicking when you think about having your teeth worked on? Have you neglected going to the dentist and fear the amount of work that might need to be carried out?

If your past or current situation is causing a lot of nervousness, there are options available to alleviate your fear and reduce (or completely eliminate) your pain with the required services. Oral sedation (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless Tampa dental patients calmly undergo dental treatment. It is not an experimental procedure but has been used safely in various forms since the 1800s.

To discuss sleep dentistry, call Kernagis Dental Excellence at 813-863-9058 to schedule a no-pressure consultation. Dr. Kernagis will explain your sedation options and answer any questions. If you decide on sedation, Dr. Kernagis will refer you to a specialist if necessary (depending on the type of sedation used).

It is important to understand the difference between topical analgesics and sedation which are used both alone and simultaneously. Analgesics help numb the gums and nerves connected with your teeth so you don’t feel the pain. Sedation medications influence the nervous system and deliver a feeling of peace and relaxation. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are calm but still awake, or select general anesthesia which renders you completely unconscious. Together, these two solutions dramatically improve the treatment experience for patients suffering from dental anxiety, a very common condition.

Regardless of the type and level of sedation you decide to use, Dr. Kernagis will proceed with patience and understanding. Oral sedation helps with making your dental visit laid-back so you can treat all of your dental problems and restore your health. Taking care of decay, infections, and other urgent problems brings peace of mind and reduce the risk of further damage including tooth loss.

Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa is dedicated to oral health and complete patient satisfaction from the first visit through the completion of treatment. We offer first-rate dental care including cosmetic dentistry, Lumineers, and dental implants.
