Dr. Matthew Church Providing Affordable Sedation

What is sedation dentistry?

It is common for people to struggle with dental anxiety. Dental anxieties are extremely common, especially for patients who have had negative past experiences. When patients are uneasy about getting in the dental chair, they are less likely to keep their smile healthy. To improve oral health, Dr. Matthew Church offers sedative methods to patients who need them.

Methods of sedation

At Washington Street Dentistry, Dr. Matthew Church offers two methods of sedation, including:

  • Nitrous oxide chairside sedation
  • Oral conscious sedation

Nitrous oxide chairside sedation

Patients who have mild fears often consider nitrous oxide chairside sedation. Nitrous oxide is an odorless and colorless gas that is administered through the nose to provide almost immediate relaxation. Patients are coherent and awake during their treatment, though much more relaxed. Nitrous oxide can be used for simple procedures such as cleanings and examinations. It is immediately reversed with the administration of oxygen.

Oral conscious sedation

Prescription medication can also be obtained and taken prior to the appointment. This allows patients to get to the dental office while sedated, but does require transportation arrangements. 

Dr. Matthew Church understands dental anxieties and provides sedation dentistry to help combat common fears about visiting the dental chair. If you live in or around the area of Indianapolis, Indiana and are ready to discuss the benefits of using sedation during treatment, call (317) 333-6788 to schedule an appointment at 10935 East Washington Street. Washington Street Dentistry is always accepting new patients in their state-of-the-art practice.
