Asks, Is Dental Anxiety Keeping You From Care? We Can Help!

What to Expect IV Sedation Dentistry

Our IV sedation process is simple and effective. We administer anesthesia through an IV to help reduce anxiety and induce a state of relaxation. Although many remain awake, most patients feel like they’re in a dream state when the anesthesia begins circulating through the body. However, some patients do fall asleep.

You may feel uneasy about undergoing dental procedures, especially if they’re more complex. Our dentist understands that this can be overwhelming for anyone, even if you don’t normally suffer from anxiety. IV sedation allows us to combine multiple treatments for complex procedures such as dental implants [Link to Dental implant] or wisdom teeth removal.

IV Sedation

Dr. Fetsch administers IV sedation for the most complex, invasive dental procedures such as full mouth dental implant placement. Dental anesthesia is a combination of medications that can only be administered by specially trained practitioners in Missouri, like our implant dentist at South County Complete Dental Care.

Oral Sedation

We also provide oral sedation for patients who experience anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist. With oral sedation, you’ll take a pill before your appointment and feel more relaxed during your treatment. If you’re interested in oral sedation, please let us know when you schedule your appointment, and we’ll be happy to provide you with more information.

Nitrous Oxide

We can administer nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”), which you’ll inhale through a mask before your treatment. Throughout your procedure, you’ll stay alert but relaxed. Plus, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once your mask is removed, so you won’t be impaired.

Overcome your fears & restore your oral health.
