Severe Gag Reflex

Receiving dental care can be difficult for individuals who battle with a sensitive or severe gag reflex. Some patients gag as soon as any dental instruments reach the oral cavity. This makes maintaining your teeth and gums in tip-top shape a big challenge. Located in St. Francisville, Feliciana Dental can help individuals with severe gag reflexes get the high-quality dental care they deserve. 

Sensitive gag reflexes can be a mental and a physical condition. Feeling at ease and in a comfortable setting can go a long way. Being able to sit back and enjoy a movie or tv show can make the difference. For more complicated situations,  sedation dentistry can be an effective way to minimize gag reflex. 

If all other treatment options and techniques are exhausted, we may recommend sedation options. Nitrous oxide sedation is a perfect sedation option for those with gag reflex sensitivity. The nitrous oxide will relax the patient and offer a sense of euphoria. Your dental treatment will be completed before you even know it. 

Stop avoiding dental care because of severe gag reflex. Your oral health doesn’t need to continue to suffer; Feliciana Dental has options for you. Our dedication to providing a comfortable experience for all is carried out based on your needs. Contact our St. Francisville dental practice.
