If you’ve been putting off necessary dental treatment because of dental anxiety, now there is a solution. Sedation dentistry allows patients to feel relaxed and comfortable during any dental procedure, even if they’ve experienced severe dental anxiety in the past. Fear doesn’t need to stop you from getting the help that you need.
Here in Dayton, we provide quality dental work and compassionate patient care. We want to make sure our patients feel comfortable during their appointments, and are proud to offer a sedation dentistry option for our patients who might struggle with dental anxiety.
Sedation dentistry provides patients with many benefits:
- Dental sedation patients are comfortable and relaxed during any procedure.
- Dental sedation patients are fully conscious and able to react and answer questions during the procedure calmly while relaxed.
- Dental sedation is totally safe and completely effective.
- Many patients who participate in dental sedation report that they don’t even remember the procedure after it has finished.
At our practice, we offer IV sedation. IV sedation is a type of sedation dentistry that is administered via IV. Because the effects of the sedation don’t wear off as quickly as with nitrous oxide, you will need to arrange for a friend or loved one to drive you to your appointment. When you get to the office, you will be taken to a room where the IV will be administered.
Once the effects of the IV sedation have set in, your appointment will begin and you will be able to enjoy the procedure without any of the usual stress or anxiety. Once the procedure is complete, you will be driven home where the effects of the sedation will wear off, leaving you with only a positive dental experience and cared for teeth.
To find out more about sedation dentistry, you can call our office with any questions or to set up an appointment if you are in the Dayton area, from Beavercreek to Centerville OH. No matter your level of dental anxiety, you can receive meaningful and compassionate dental care and enjoy great oral health.
