IV Sedation

Conquer Dental Anxiety with IV Sedation in Fishers

Intravenous sedation can help patients overcome dental anxiety.
Our sedation dentistry treatments allow Dr. Behner to provide meaningful dental care for his patients who suffer from dental anxiety. At Dental Care Today in Fishers (just east of Carmel, IN), we offer three different methods of sedation dentistry to meet each patient’s individual sedation needs. IV sedation is an excellent sedation method that allows patients to feel completely comfortable and relaxed during any dental procedure.

What is Intravenous Sedation?

IV sedation is one of our three sedation dentistry methods. Because intravenous sedation is administered using an IV, the sedation results can be a bit deeper than with oral conscious sedation and laughing gas. No matter which sedation dentistry treatment you choose, you will feel relaxed and comfortable in our office. Our sedation dentistry treatments do not put patients to sleep. Our Indianapolis area patients who participate in intravenous sedation will be able to answer questions and respond, but will feel completely at ease in the dentist chair, even if they’ve felt dental anxiety there in the past.

How is IV Sedation Administered?

Before your appointment, you will be taken to a room where you will receive your sedation treatment via IV. After the IV sedation kicks in, your appointment will begin. IV sedation can decrease discomfort and tooth sensitivity. Patients feel so calm that their procedures become more comfortable and their visit to the dentist becomes more enjoyable. After the appointment is over, a friend or loved one will be asked to drive you home. The effects of the IV sedation will wear off quickly, leaving you with beautiful teeth, and an enjoyable dental experience.

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

    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!

    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.

    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!
