Overcoming Dental Phobias
You may be suffering from dental phobia due to lack of competent care. You may have had a really bad experience in the past that caused you avoid dentists altogether. Dr. Ronald L. Receveur wants you to know that advanced sedation dentistry can help you regain optimal oral health.
The first step is to find a dentist you feel you can trust again. Then ask him or her for special medication or treatment to help you get rid of your phobia.
Anesthetic medications, like laughing gas, may help you get the dental care you need with less discomfort and anxiety. New Albany Implants use laughing gas to help patients achieve a calm state while remaining conscious.
We commonly use this procedure for patients with mild anxiety for short, uncomplicated dental treatments. When inhaled, the gas will send a warm and relaxed sensation throughout your body. Most of our patients experience a drowsy state of awareness, the same feeling you have right before falling asleep. The effects of the gas slowly wear off and allow patients to drive themselves home safely after the procedure.
What is IV sedation?
IV sedation includes administering medication into the bloodstream to help patients relax. If the patient requires more or less sedation, our team can make the necessary adjustments. It normally takes a minimum of 20 minutes before the patient starts feeling the effect. Under IV sedation, patients can get the dental treatment they need with little to no memory of the procedure.
