Whether you have sensitive teeth, claustrophobia or severe dental anxiety, we are here to help. We don’t want to see any patients go without treatment when sedation options are available to make treatment painless, comfortable and anxiety-free. If you need dental care to protect your gums and teeth but are terrified of dental procedures, we can help with sedation dentistry in Cortland, OH. At Dr. Bedich’s office, we offer five different options for sedation.
Local and Topical Anesthetic
We use familiar injections and gels to numb any area before it is treated. These treatments work by blocking the nerves before the procedure is performed, therefore blocking any pain or discomfort you may feel. With this type of anesthetic, you are completely conscious but shouldn’t feel any pain.
A nose mask if placed over your face, and nitrous oxide is breathed in through the nose. Nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that may give you a euphoric feeling within minutes. These feelings fade immediately after the mask is used, and you can go back to normal life immediately.
Before your procedure, you will receive a prescription from Dr. Bedich for a sedative. You will take the sedative immediately before your visit, so the relaxing effect will set in before you come for your procedure. These relaxing effects may last for several hours after treatment.
Intravenous Conscious Sedation
IV sedation leaves you with no memory of the treatment and removes all anxiety before you undergo a procedure. Using an IV, a sedative is administered by a trained professional to allow you to rest comfortably within seconds.
With deep sedation, you are completely unconscious during the procedure or treatment. A dental anesthesiologist will administer the sedative and monitor your vitals during the procedure.
