Sedation Dentistry | Central Indiana Sedation Dentists
Would you rather endure a toothache than step into a dentist’s office? If so, sedation dentistry may be for you. Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who have a low pain threshold, cannot sit still in a dentist’s chair, have very sensitive teeth or have a bad gag reflex. Children, as well as adults, can benefit from sedation. For more information on sedation dentistry or to see if it is right for you and your family, call any of our Ladd Dental offices today.
While sedation dentistry is generally safe, you should first talk to your doctor if you are obese or have obstructive sleep apnea. Drug characteristics must be carefully considered when choosing the appropriate medication. Matching factors, such as where the drug is metabolized and any underlying diseases requires a good medical history and thorough knowledge of the drug's characteristics. All risk factors, individual characteristics, and procedural complexities can be taken into account in order to provide the best drug choice. Our dentist at Ladd Dental Group are up to date on sedation dentistry training to provide as safe of a procedure as possible. We will monitor your vital signs during the entire procedure and carry medication that is able to reverse the effects of the sedation if needed.
