Sedation Dentistry

Dental Sedation Solutions in Owensboro

Relaxation with Dental Sedation in OwensboroAre you afraid of the dentist? Maybe when you were a child you had a bad experience at the dentist. Or maybe you have an especially sensitive mouth and you associate going to the dentist with a lot of pain.

Have you made an appointment with a dentist in the Owensboro or Henderson KY area only to cancel it or simply not show up? It could be you are in need of dental treatment–you may even be in pain right now, but your fear of the dentist is preventing you from getting necessary care.

Our sedation dentists, Dr. Thompson and Dr. Frey in Owensboro, understand your fears and want you to feel relaxed and comfortable when you come visit us. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry options: oral dental sedation and nitrous oxide and other patient comforts.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a big term for the dental sedation treatment that uses a pill prescribed by your Henderson KY sedation dentist. You take this pill right before you come to your appointment. The medication will help you relax and feel comfortable.

With oral conscious sedation, you are conscious and awake. Conscious sedation isn’t meant to make you sleep. But you may feel so relaxed that you really don’t remember much, if anything, of the procedure.

Because conscious sedation can make you woozy, you will need to have someone provide transportation for you to and from your appointment.

Sedation Dentistry with Nitrous Oxide

Sedation Dentistry in Henderson KY using nitrous oxideNitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a time-tested, safe dental sedation method. Nitrous oxide is a gas that is mixed with oxygen and you inhale it through a tube placed in your nose.

Nitrous oxide works very quickly and dissipates out of your system quickly, too. Because of this, you will not need to find transportation to and from your appointment if you are using nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is the mildest sedation dentistry option, but is marvelously effective.

If you are concerned about going to the dentist, call our office serving the Henderson KY area today. With the sedation dentistry treatments we offer, we feel confident that either conscious sedation or nitrous oxide, together with the other patient comforts we offer, can vastly improve your ability to get the dental treatment you want and need. Our sedation dentistry in Owensboro can help you conquer your anxiety!
