Enjoying anxiety-free dentistry in Wichita

Many patients in the Wichita area avoid the dentist because they are afraid that they will be subjected to pain and discomfort. However, thanks to advances in dentistry, the East Wichita Dentist provides anxiety-free services with the use of sedatives. At his practice, he offers three methods of sedation, which can relax patients before and during their appointment including nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation.

Nitrous oxide is often the first choice for patients who have mild fears of the dentist. Also called "laughing gas," nitrous oxide is administered through the nose and it provides almost instant relaxation. The team of East Wichita Dentist use this for both children and adults, as it is mild and easily reversed with the administration of oxygen. Nitrous oxide is not only good for patients with anxieties but can be used for individuals who are difficult to numb fully with local anesthetics and those who have strong gag reflexes.

Oral conscious sedation is another method of sedation but is administered in the form of a pill. This medication is taken well before the appointment and it allows patients to be awake and coherent for their appointment. They can follow instructions and can answer questions throughout their visit. Transportation should be arranged for this form of sedation, as patients are not to operate machinery while under its influence.

Our team also offers IV sedation, which is administered intravenously by his on-staff anesthesiologist. Patients can use this if they have severe anxieties or are undergoing several treatments at once and will be in the dentist's chair for an extended period.

We want to ensure that patients have a positive experience at the dentist and are not afraid of pain and discomfort. Anxiety-free dentistry is a phone call away. Contact us today to book an appointment and learn more about nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation available to new and existing patients.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
