Because we want you to have the most comfortable dental experience possible, we offer sedation dentistry at our Charleston practice serving Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach.
DR. JOHN F. RINK: Sedation Dentistry is an advanced science whereby our patients can come in and have various different systems employed to help them relax. The simplest system is a DVD virtual reality movie. The DVD virtual reality movie enables the patients to just go away and be totally distracted by watching their favorite movie star or their favorite show. The next level from movies is nitric oxide sedation. Nitric oxide is a safe, quickly reversible system that enables our patients to relax. We also have patients that need something a little stronger, a little more than laughing gas and that particular system is tablets or pills. We unusually use a combination of a pain reliever with a relaxant so that the patients can come in and have their procedures done comfortably and painlessly. These systems enable our patients to move forward with the health care they need so that they can maintain a healthy mouth.
