What is sedation dentistry in Wichita?

Fear of the dental chair keeps many patients from visiting their general dentist for regular appointments. Many patients do not keep their biannual visits with their dentist, and only go when a problem arises. This is not the way to maintain good oral health habits. While daily at-home care can assist in keeping a smile healthy, regular visits to the dentist (at least twice a year) for cleanings and examinations can help catch any problems early enough so that they can be diagnosed and addressed. Patients who are uneasy with visiting the dentist may benefit from a practice that offers sedation dentistry.

What is sedation dentistry? Wichita area residents can visit East Wichita Dentist in order to undergo sedation dentistry. This form of dentistry utilizes special oral sedation medication to ease patient's minds, making them comfortable and relaxed enough to get the dental care they need. At East Wichita Dentist, we offer sedation dentistry for adults. Adults will discuss their concerns with their dentist, and once an appointment is scheduled for a dental treatment, patients will be given a prescription for oral medication. This medication is taken approximately one hour before the patient arrives for their scheduled appointment. They are transported to the dental office to undergo their treatment in a relaxed and comfortable state. The patient is completely conscious, which allows them to answer questions, take direction, and participate in their dental treatment when necessary. After the appointment, the patient is then taken home to rest, and when he or she awakens, there will be no recollection of their dental appointment. This allows patients to have only positive experiences with the dentist and over time, can help eliminate the fears to the point where sedation may no longer be needed.

The team at East Wichita Dentist has dealt with many patients who have had problems with maintaining a calm attitude when it comes to visiting the dentist's chair. Thanks to sedation dentistry, patients can now have much-needed treatments done while eliminating the uneasiness they may feel. If you think you're ready to undergo sedation dentistry, call East Wichita Dentist today to schedule a consultation appointment and find out more about oral conscious sedation methods.

    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
