Many people feel apprehensive about visiting the dentist. Some let years go in between dental visits and put up with damaged teeth and discomfort because the idea visiting a dental office makes them nervous. If this sounds like you, imagine your dental treatment completed in what feels like a matter of minutes. Thanks to Indianapolis sedation dentistry, Dr. Sammons can make that possible!
Sedation dentistry essentially erases any reservations you may have about visiting the dentist. Whether your dental needs include a routine checkup or full smile makeover, you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry if you experience:
In our office, Dr. Sammons provides oral conscious sedation. About an hour before your treatment, Dr. Sammons will deliver medication under your tongue that will put you in a peaceful, relaxed state.
While other practices may leave it up to the patient to take the medication on their own. Dr. Sammons prefers to monitor the process right in our office to ensure it is completed safely and that you get the very best benefits it provides.
Oral conscious sedation will make you feel very relaxed, almost drowsy, but it will not put you to sleep. It should help you feel like your treatment is going along very quickly, and you’ll be capable of carrying on a comfortable discussion with Dr. Sammons throughout.
Because the medication is so effective; you may have no recollection of the treatment the next day. For this reason, you will need someone to accompany you to your appointment to give you a safe ride home.
Sedation dentistry has indeed changed the way people feel about going the dentist—some may even call it life-changing!
