Three Reasons to Visit Us
As we noted above, sedation dentistry is not new. Many practices offer some kind of sedation, but few can match what we offer:
- Inhaled Sedation – Laughing gas works quickly so you can get the care you need, and it wears off quickly so you feel like yourself shortly after your appointment.
- Oral Conscious Sedation – If you have a higher level of dental anxiety, you may prefer something stronger than laughing gas. We can prescribe an FDA-approved pill to take before your appointment. Just make sure a friend or family member can bring you to and from the office since the effects of this sedation can last for a few hours.
- IV Sedation – This is the strongest sedation we offer, and it’s great for longer procedures. Dr. Powers is among the few dentists in Indiana with the training and licensing to offer this fast-acting option.
