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

oral sedation for dental phobia in Fishers and CarmelIf 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.

    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.

    —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!
