We encourage our patients to think about their sedation options and to see what they can handle before we just to our more serious sedation techniques. You might be reading and feel nervous because you know no amount of sedation will help you. You might belong to a group of patients who suffer from dental phobia. Our society is kind of loose with the term “phobia”, but we understand it very well at New Albany Implants. We want you to know that we can help you get the dental care you need, you just need to give us a call.
When we say that society is loose with the term phobia, we mean that it’s used as a hyperbole for plain old fear. If spiders give you the creepy-crawlies, you might say you have a phobia, but that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Someone with a phobia would experience a debilitating fear, meaning they would not be able to function normally around whatever they fear. Their fear is intense and unwavering. Someone like this would really struggle to get the dental care they need.
This is why Dr. Ron has invested in sleep dentistry. He is the only dentist in Southern Indiana with this capability. With sleep sedation, you can sleep, completely unaware, for your entire dental visit. Our IV sedation takes effect within minutes. We can also offer an oral sedation to help calm your nerves before we administer IV sedation. All you need to do is get to the office, and we’ll make sure you are completely comfortable during your entire visit.
We also recommend sleep dentistry for special needs patients who might be frightened by the dental environment. Sleep dentistry allows us to take care of their dental needs without causing alarm. Whatever your fears, give us a call! We are prepared to handle even the most complicated case, so don’t hesitate any longer. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and we want to help you have the best smile possible!
