Oral Conscious Sedation
Conscious Sedation for Dental Phobia in Indianapolis
Even if you’ve suffered from crippling dental phobia in the past, you can enjoy your visit to the dentist with oral conscious sedation. At our practice we care about our patients and want them to feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Behner is a compassionate and skilled dentist in the Indianapolis area who provides his patients with meaningful dental care that will help them enjoy a lifetime of optimal oral health.
If dental anxiety has kept you from getting the treatment that you need, oral conscious sedation may be your solution.
What is Conscious Sedation?
Oral conscious sedation is one of our three sedation dentistry treatments. Sedation dentistry treatments are available for patients prior to their appointments and help patients feel calm and relaxed during dentistry procedures. Oral conscious sedation is a popular sedation dentistry method because it is convenient and easy to administer.
The Oral Conscious Sedation Procedure
If you ask for an oral conscious sedation procedure, we will prescribe you a small, easy-to-take oral conscious sedation tablet. You will take this tablet about thirty minutes before your appointment. A friend or loved one will need to drive you to and from the dentist office.
If the oral sedation hasn’t kicked in by the time you arrive at our office in Fishers, you will be able to relax in our beautiful wait area until you are fully sedated. Once you are completely comfortable and relaxed, your regular appointment will begin. You will be fully conscious during the procedure and able to react and to answer questions, but you will be in a state of complete calm that will negate any anxiety and allow you to enjoy your visit.
Oral conscious sedation is an excellent sedation dentistry method for overcoming dental phobia because it is safe, effective, and convenient.
