Thankfully, sedation dentistry can make your procedure a more pleasant, painless experience. Scheduling a no-pressure consultation with Dr. Gulch is the best way to learn why you have nothing to fear about dentistry procedures.
Major Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Greatly Reduces Pain
As mentioned, pain is the number one reason why people fear dentists. Sedation, combined with a local anesthetic, can give you a virtually painless dental appointment.
Makes Treatments Easier
When you are relaxed or in a drowsy state, Dr. Gooch can perform anything from a teeth cleaning to a root canal at our Birmingham practice quicker and more efficiently.
Calms the Body
Some adult patients may have trouble sitting still in our dental chairs due to mental or physical disorders. Small children can be fidgety. Sedation can help a patient remain still, allowing our dental team to work without interruption.
Reduces Gag Reflex
Sedation calms this reflexive action that can occur when the back or roof of your mouth is touched. The result is a smoother, less uncomfortable dental experience for you.
Cuts Down on Appointments
Calming sedation can allow you to undergo more than one procedure during an appointment, so you don't have to come back for further treatment.

Please Know... Your Comfort is Our Priority
If visiting the dentist or undergoing a particular procedure causes your heart to pound, you are no different than many of our patients. In fact, dental phobia is a condition that affects many Americans, and serious anxiety can inhibit you from seeking the dental care you need to maintain good oral health and a beautiful smile. It is important for our patients to understand they are not alone and that dental anxiety can easily be managed and overcome. Throughout every stage of your treatment, the Gooch Family Dental team is committed to ensuring your complete comfort in a relaxing environment. We truly offer a different kind of dentistry.
Our Patients Love Our Comfortable Treatment
I am the quintessential terrified-of-the-dentist person. I arrived at the office in tears from the anxiety. As embarrassing as that was, the entire staff was gracious and patient. We took time to develop a plan that would help me feel comfortable getting much-needed work done that I had procrastinated on due to fear. The combination of their professionalism, education, and amenities for comfort (I used nitrous and did very well), made the experience actually pleasant. I really cannot recommend them enough if a phobia of the dentist if you’re issue. I look forward to working with them again.View on Google
I work for a luxury retail company and I can say, without hesitation, that Dr. Gooch and his staff are as good as any company I have ever engaged at providing stellar customer service. From the initial greeting to the "See you next time", the genuine friendliness and professionalism are top notch. Moreover, the quality of their work is excellent. I had both a routine cleaning and some minor dental work done and each procedure was very well-done. Even the small filling repair was painless and fast. I highly recommend Dr. Gooch and his team. They are fantastic at what they do.View on Google
