Recent studies estimate that approximately 1 in 7 U.S. adults experience some form of dental anxiety, and as a result, many forego much needed dental care. Dr. Mark Langberg, cosmetic and dental implants dentist in Southfield, MI, now offers sedation dentistry to patients to help them have a more comfortable visit, which also encourages them to receive more regular care.
“Our goal is to provide the highest quality dental care for our patients in the most comfortable manner possible,” said Dr. Langberg, sedation dentist in Southfield, MI. “With sedation dentistry, we've been able to show many of our patients who had a past fear of visiting the dentist that receiving regular care doesn't have to be uncomfortable.”
Dr. Langberg specializes in anxiolysis and conscious sedation, neither of which requires the use of an IV needle. Anxiolytics are used to combat anxiety, while conscious sedation puts the patient in a deeper level of relaxation, although they are still awake and alert. This is typically done through the use of medications that are customized for each patient. Both treatments have amnesic qualities, meaning that many patients don't remember much about their dental visit in the following days.
Sedation dentistry is a valuable service for not only those who experience dental fear or anxiety, but also for those who are in need of extensive treatments, have jaw soreness, a severe gag reflex, or those who have difficulty getting numb.
Dr. Langberg is highly experienced with sedation dentistry and has completed continuing education courses in administering and utilizing methods for sedation dentistry. He has the latest tools and technology to monitor patients who undergo conscious sedation, ensuring that their comfort and safety are paramount.
In addition to sedation dentistry, Dr. Langberg and his staff also provide other dental services including restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, standard cleanings and preventative treatments, etc. He is also a trained TMJ dentist in Southfield, MI.
Dr. Mark Langberg completed his dental education at the University Of Michigan School Of Dentistry and has more than 35 years of experience in the field. He has been a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry for more than 10 years and is a member of six notable dental associations. Dr. Langberg has more than 600 hours of continuing dental education credits.
