Finally feel comfortable at the dentist’s office with oral conscious sedation dentistry for patients in Carmel, IN

Washington Street Dentistry’s goal is to make sure that all of our patients have a positive dental experience at our office. We understand that many people have had negative experiences at the dentist before or have unexplained fears of visiting a dentist’s office. This is why one of the ways we seek to improve the experience of all of our patients is by offering sedation dentistry for those in Carmel, IN and surrounding areas. One of the preferred methods of sedation for many is oral conscious sedation.

Oral sedation is unique in that you can take oral sedation medication before you get to the dentist’s office. The medication can help you feel less anxious and even relaxed as you prepare to visit and will continue to work throughout your appointment. Often, patients feel so drowsy that they may fall asleep during the dental appointment, but the medication is not meant to knock you out. Instead, you remain conscious during your appointment and you can interact with and respond to the dentist to get the best out of your dental care just as anyone else would.

If the thought of dental work still scares you, it may help to know that many patients do not even remember any of the dental work after the appointment. This means that you can get the care your teeth need to stay healthy without even remembering any of the treatment. Oral sedation may also make it possible for the dentist to accomplish multiple treatments in one visit since you will be comfortable under sedation even if it takes a longer to get all the treatment you need. This will minimize the number of appointments.

If fear and anxiety of any kind have been keeping you from getting the dental care you know you need, give our office a call at (317) 333-6788 to find out if oral conscious sedation could work for you. You may become one of our many patients who have overcome dental anxiety.
