Most people lead busy lives and many patients put off extensive dental work because they can’t fit multiple visits into their schedule. With sedation dentistry, Dr. Reese can now accomplish multiple dental treatments in a single visit! It saves the patient time, anxiety and money - and gives Dr. Reese more time, flexibility and freedom to complete the needed treatments without having to worry about a patient's anxiety.
Different from anesthesia, which numbs pain during a dental procedure, sedation dentistry uses a medication that simultaneously works as an anti-anxiety medication and a sedative to help you feel at ease and worry-free. There is IV Sedation, Gas Sedation, and Oral Sedation options. Because of the amnesia effect of the sedation medication, many patients feel like the procedure has been a few minutes—even if it has taken hours!
Sedation Dentistry: Extremely Safe
Dental sedation is extremely safe because you remain somewhat conscious, breathe independently, and still respond to physical or verbal cues during the procedure. Natural reflexes operate normally so that you can communicate any pain to the sedation dentist.
Sedation Dentistry: Accomplishing More Without Sacrificing the Quality of Dental Care
Because dental sedation keeps you still and relaxed for a long period of time, it allows Dr. Reese to work more quickly and effectively. Armed with new technology, Dr. Reese can give you a new crown in just one visit or a new smile after an extended dental treatment - all without you having to go back for another!
At Indianapolis Dentistry, we really mean it when we say, "less visits, more care".You will be provided thorough care in an efficient manner that minimizes your visits, time away from work or home, and minimal interruption to your schedule. This works perfectly not only for those who lead busy lives but for those who have dental fear and have put off availing of dental work for so long that they need quite a full restoration and extensive dental treatments.
Whether you may or may not need and desire sedation, Dr. Reese often combines several needs into one appointment. Not just several fillings in one visit, but fillings, crowns, root canals, and some dental implants can be completed in one visit.
We are proud of our service and focus on our patient’s well being to provide beautiful, natural smiles with lasting tooth replacements and repairs.
