How Sedation Dentistry Works

Dental fear doesn't exist at Holt Dental with our many relaxation options.

If you’ve been putting a dentist visit off for too long because of your fear, then sedation dentistry may be for you. Your oral health is so important and affects your overall health, so it’s essential that you visit the dentist twice a year or as needed for maintenance and dental work.

You can choose between oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide (A.K.A. laughing gas). The process isn’t complicated.

  • Step 1

    Before treatment, we’ll discuss medical history, allergies, and medication to ensure that sedation dentistry is safe for you. Then we’ll determine the type needed for the anxiety level and the procedure.

  • Step 2

    You’re given the best sedation option for your needs and procedure.

  • Step 3

    We proceed with the dentist visit while you feel at ease. Along with the sedation medicine, our dentist may use a local anesthetic to ensure the area is numb and doesn’t cause any discomfort.

Not going to the dentist can cost you more money, time, and stress in the long run. An untreated dental problem can become a big issue if ignored. Let us help you maintain or fix your teeth and gums and help you feel at ease with sedation dentistry at Fishers, IN.
