Drs. Robert Capps, Mark Bowman, Jamison Padgett and John Hoggard are currently expanding their practice so new patients can benefit from conscious sedation in Greenville, NC, whether or not they have a referral. Individuals can achieve a beautiful, healthy smile by taking advantage of sedation dentistry, which involves treatment that blocks pain and relaxes the muscles, allowing the patient to overcome dental fear and rest comfortably throughout the procedure.

While anyone may feel some level of dental fear or anxiety about receiving oral health care, some people are unable to face even the most routine cleanings. This may be due to issues such as a bad experience at a previous dentist appointment, a low pain tolerance or sensitive teeth. Regardless of the cause, the result is often avoidance of professional dental visits and serious health consequences. These may start when bacteria mix with food acid in the mouth and create a sticky paste around the base of the teeth, which then hardens and irritates the gums. The subsequent infection leads to cavities, gum disease and eventually, tooth loss. The American Academy of Periodontology has recognized a connection between gum disease and other major health conditions including heart disease and diabetes. This is likely a result of oral bacteria and inflammation, if left untreated, spreading through the body.

The entire team at Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Associates understand how strongly dental fear can limit a patient’s ability to receive proper dental treatment, which is why they offer a variety of sedation techniques to customize each patient’s experience. Those who are facing complex or lengthy procedures often choose conscious sedation in Greenville, NC, but it is also available for routine cleanings and other minor oral care procedures. The patient is not asleep during the procedure, rather he or she remains awake enough to respond to the dentist’s instructions, but it is typical to have little or no memory of the experience afterward.

Anyone who suffers from severe dental anxiety can achieve oral health through conscious sedation, or a variety of other treatment options at the Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Associates dental practice in Greenville, NC. Now that there is no need for a referral, making an appointment is as simple as calling (252) 360-1855. More information is available on the website at http://www.cappsbowman.com.
