Safe Oral Sedation Keeps You Calm

If you need dental sedation to keep you calm, we can give you a safe prescription medication to take before your treatment. Oral sedation offers many advantages:

  • Little Risk of Side Effects – The medications we use are regulated by the FDA and have long records of safe usage.
  • Responsiveness – You’ll be deeply relaxed but awake, so you’ll be able to hear and respond to instructions and other communication.
  • No Shots – Unlike IV sedation, there’s no needle required for oral sedation.
  • Long-Lasting – You’ll arrive feeling relaxed and stay that way throughout your procedure.

We use sedation protocols from DOCS (Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation), which were created to offer the safest sedation experience possible.

Understanding IV Sedation

For those who require a deeper level of sedation, IV sedation is an option. It involves administering sedative medication intravenously, allowing for quick onset and greater control over sedation levels. Here’s what you need to know about IV sedation:

  • Immediate Effect – IV sedation works quickly, as the medication is delivered directly into the bloodstream.
  • Precision and Control – The level of sedation can be adjusted in real-time for optimal patient comfort.
  • Amnesia Effect – Many patients have little to no memory of the procedure after IV sedation, which can be beneficial for those with severe dental anxiety.
  • Professional Monitoring – IV sedation requires the presence of a trained professional to monitor vital signs and ensure safety throughout the procedure.

It’s important to discuss with your dentist whether IV sedation is the right choice for you, based on your medical history and the specifics of your dental treatment.

Don’t Stress About Paying for Services

Not surprisingly, payment for dental services can sometimes be stressful. We take the hassle out of the process in our Hilliard, OH dentist office by offering many payment options. We accept payment from more than three dozen popular insurance plans. You can get third-party financing for services not covered by insurance. You can also choose our Just Smiles Dental Plan for freedom from insurance hassles.
