Dental sedation calms and comforts Wichita area patients

Dental Sedation Calms and Comforts Wichita Patients
Wichita area patients who are worried about their upcoming dental appointments do not have to feel alone with their fears. Dental anxiety is a common issue among patients of all ages. Anxieties may stem from previous negative experiences in the dental office or from a fear of the unknown. Others are uneasy about someone in their personal space. Whatever the reason, our team has sedation solutions for you.

Types of sedation

Sedation types available at East Wichita include:
  • Nitrous oxide
  • Oral conscious sedation
  • IV sedation

Nitrous oxide

Mild sedation can be achieved with nitrous oxide, also known as "laughing gas." Patients feel relaxed when this odorless gas is administered through the nose. Sedation is almost immediate and can be reversed quickly by administering oxygen. The patient can drive themselves to and from their appointment with this method of sedation.

Oral conscious sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a prescribed medication taken by the patient prior to their arrival at the office. Patients arrange transportation to and from the visit, as they cannot drive a vehicle while this medication is in effect. Patients are relaxed yet awake while using this sedation. Many patients return home to rest and have no recollection of their visit.

IV sedation

Patients with extreme anxieties may benefit from IV sedation, which is administered directly through the bloodstream.

    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
