Dr. Kevin Hogan welcomes new patients with or without a referral suffering from dental anxiety in and around Isle of Palms, SC to find relief and relaxation through sedation dentistry. Referrals for this calming treatment is not required, an advantage especially appreciated amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. Dr. Hogan encourages patients to receive the dental care they need as soon as they can and not to prolong treatment. As a result, Smiles by Hogan offers calming oral conscious sedation for oral hygiene cleanings and other dental treatments to ensure patients experience a comfortable appointment every time at their Mt. Pleasant, SC practice.
Even before the coronavirus outbreak, patients who had dental anxiety often found it difficult and even impossible to maintain routine dental appointments. In many cases, their anxiety was so severe that they were not able to visit the dentist for years at a time all the while suffering from multiple silent and/or painful dental problems. Tooth decay, infection, missing teeth, and other issues make it difficult to live a healthy, functional, and confident life.
If decay or infection is left untreated, it can lead to gum disease, this condition has been linked to complications in physical health, including a weakened immune system. If the body is not in optimal health, this increases the risk of developing other diseases and leaves it susceptible to dangerous viruses. Dr. Hogan encourages patients with dental anxiety to receive sedation dentistry and the dental treatment they need to relieve pain, restore oral function, and remain healthy and strong during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sedation dentistry provides various options for patients who need assistance feeling calm and relaxed during their dental appointments. Dr. Hogan offers oral conscious sedation for his anxious or fearful patients. This type of sedation allows patients to fully relax, no matter how long their appointment is or how many procedures they need completed. Due to the amnesic effects of oral conscious sedation, many patients have little-to-no memory of their appointment, including the aspects that cause anxiety or fear, such as sounds and smells.
“Sedation allows a patient to have needed dentistry done in a comfortable environment with medications that create amnesic effects,” says Dr. Hogan. With the ability to complete dental appointments comfortably and with little-to-no memory of the experience, patients find it significantly easier to maintain proper dental care and good oral health.
