Keeping Dental Patients Calm

sleep dentistry Fishers

Are you or a family member nervous about going to the dentist? Has a past experience with pain or discomfort caused you to start panicking when you think about having your teeth worked on? Have you neglected going to the dentist and fear the amount of work that might need to be carried out?

If your past or current situation is causing a lot of uneasiness, there are options available to reduce your fear and reduce (or completely eliminate) your pain with the needed procedures. Oral sedation (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless Indianapolis dental patients calmly undergo dental treatment. It is not an experimental procedure but has been used safely in various forms since the 1800s.

To discuss sleep dentistry, call Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS at 317-842-2337 to schedule a no-pressure consultation. Dr. Behner will explain your sedation options and answer any questions. If you select sedation, Dr. Behner will refer you to a specialist if needed (depending on the type of sedation used).

It is critical to understand the difference between topical analgesics and sedation which are used both alone and simultaneously. Analgesics help numb the gums and nerves connected with your teeth so you don’t feel the pain. Sedation medications influence the nervous system and convey a feeling of peace and relaxation. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are peaceful but still awake, or decide on general anesthesia which renders you completely unconscious. Together, these two solutions dramatically improve the treatment experience for patients suffering from dental anxiety, a very common condition.

Regardless of the type and level of sedation you decide to use, Dr. Behner will proceed with patience and understanding. Oral sedation assists with making your dental visit relaxed so you can treat all of your dental problems and restore your health. Taking care of decay, infections, and other serious problems brings peace of mind and reduces the risk of further damage including tooth loss.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    —Jeanie M.

    Leslee D.

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

    —Judy S.
