Sedation Dentistry in
West Columbia

At Carolina Smiles Family Dentistry, we recognize that some of our patients need a bit more help with relaxation for their dental treatments. The sensation of drilling or a significant gag reflex may cause some to prefer not to be quite so aware during their dental treatment. For those patients, we have sedation options available to enhance their comfort level.

We offer treatment with an oral conscious sedation dentist for patients who prefer to be sedated during their treatment. This allows you to remain alert enough to respond to your dental care team but stay entirely relaxed throughout the session.

Relax with Oral Conscious Sedation

If you elect to have oral conscious sedation dentistry, your dentist will prescribe a pill for you to take prior to your treatment. Your oral sedation should be taken approximately one hour before your scheduled appointment time. This will alleviate your dental anxiety during the procedure and allow the dental team to communicate with you.

Your dosage can be adjusted to suit your anxiety level so that you are at ease by the time the treatment begins, and if you so wish, you can be fully sedated the entire time.

Carolina Smiles Cares for the comfort and relaxation of each of our patients. We wish to do all we can to make you feel at ease during your visits with us. With or without sedation, we ensure through the use of local anesthesia that you feel minimal discomfort throughout whatever treatment you are here to receive.

Awesome experience! Very professional and friendly staff, especially Felicia and Patty. Patty was very gentle and thorough with my teeth cleaning as well as knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions regarding oral hygiene and gum care. Will definitely be returning for future dental needs and would recommend to anyone!

I would highly recommend Carolina Smiles to any of my family or friends. The waiting area is complete with complimentary bottled water, hot tea and coffee. I have told numerous coworkers about the amazing staff. They are very easy to talk to and they make you feel comfortable and treat you with respect. Thank you Alisha, Jalisa, Felicia and Melanie for another memorable experience!!

Another great experience at CSFD yesterday! Melanie, Kim M., Loreal, Shellie, and Dr. J took great care of me, as usual, but once again went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and happy. I have referred coworkers and friends because of their staff.
