If you fear the dentist, you're not alone!Sedation dentistry removes the layer of fear and anxiety of dental procedures to receive the care that you have putting off.
This treatment has an amnesic effect and also a compression of time effect; meaning there is little or no memory of your visit and a two hour appointment seems like a one hour appointment. We can correct years of embarrassing problems in as little as 1 or 2appointments! With sedation dentistry you can wake up to a more comfortable and beautiful smile.
With sedation dentistry you can kiss your fears goodbye and totally relax under our comfortable, conscious anesthesia and anxiety-free techniques. Our dental assistants will even hold your hand if you want them to.
Who should try sedation dentistry?Everyone is different. Most people who avoid the dentist suffer from paralyzing fear. Maybe they’ve had a traumatic experience. Some put off going to the dentist because they simply don’t have the time. Others have a low pain tolerance or resistance to the numbing injections that most dentists use. Some dental patients can’t control a gag reflex, and still others are too embarrassed about the condition of their teeth.
No matter what your reason, there’s no need to feel embarrassed. Dr. Bridenstine and his team of professionals in Lenexa often see patients who have not been to a dentist in years. It’s not unusual for us to see patients who require extensive, complex treatment. But the good news is that with sedation, we can usually accomplish complete care and restoration in just one comfortable, anxiety free visit.
