Why might a Wichita, KS patient benefit from Sedation Dentistry?

Fear and anxiety can be difficult for patients to overcome when faced with the prospect of visiting the dentist. Many patients are uncomfortable with seeing the dentist but can benefit from a practice that offers sedation dentistry. Wichita, KS practice, East Wichita Dentist, offers sedation dentistry, it was one of the first practices in the area to offer oral conscious sedation.

Oral conscious sedation is a method of sedation that is delivered through an oral medication. Before a patient’s appointment, they are prescribed a sedative pill to take approximately one hour before his or her dental appointment. After being transported to the dentist, the patient is completely coherent and conscious during his or her entire treatment. However, when the patient rests at home after the visit, there will be little to no recollection of the appointment. This makes it easier to get fearful, anxious patients into the dental office for much-needed dental work.

Oral conscious sedation is beneficial for more than just fearful patients. Patients who suffer from strong gag reflexes may enjoy sedation to comfort them throughout their treatment. Patients that have sensory problems or are susceptible to movement or unconscious twitching during treatment may also use oral conscious sedation to get through their dental appointments with little to no problem.

The dentist at East Wichita Dentist has completed DOCS training courses to provide safe oral conscious sedation and he is happy to offer this service to his patients. He understands that visiting the dentist can be anxiety-ridden for many patients and wants to ensure that every patient is comfortable and at ease before, during, and after their dental treatments.

If you suffer from fear and anxiety when visiting the dentist and are ready to try oral conscious sedation, stick with a dentist you can trust who has the training and expertise to provide a positive experience with sedatives. The team at our practice is ready and willing to help patients overcome anxieties and seek the assistance they need to schedule and attend dental treatments.

    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
