Painless dentistry is possible in Indianapolis, IN with conscious sedation

Sedation has long been used in the medical field as a vital way for patients to receive necessary treatment or surgery. The same holds true with dental sedation. It gives patients the ability to seek care they need, without anxiety or discomfort. Painless dentistry is possible with oral conscious sedation from Washington Street Dentistry in Indianapolis, IN.

Benefits of oral conscious sedation

  • Patients are relaxed enough to sit through the entire procedure, whether it is a cleaning, cosmetic enhancement, or restorative procedure.
  • Patients can combine multiple procedures into one visit, which improves recovery time and minimizes trauma.
  • Patients may gradually overcome dental anxiety by having positive experiences.

Dental anxiety can put oral health in jeopardy. Many patients are unable to let go of memories of previous traumatic experiences. Others are embarrassed by an overactive gag reflex, and some simply have a fear of the unknown. Oral conscious sedation addresses all of these issues to make the dental experience relaxing and painless.

Oral conscious sedation is a medication prescribed to the patient to be taken prior to coming into the office. Patients need to secure transportation to and from the appointment. The medication relaxes patients while they remain conscious. During the procedure, patients are able to follow instructions and answer questions. However, many doze off and have no recollection of the visit. The medication can remain effective several hours post-procedure, which also helps to reduce discomfort. 

If you have anxiety or fear of the dentist that has put your oral health in jeopardy, please call Dr. Matthew Church and his team at Washington Street Dentistry in Indianapolis, IN at (317) 333-6788. Our team is happy to answer questions you may have about painless dentistry with sedation. We will work with you to come up with a plan for addressing your dental needs.
