Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to receive dental treatment free of pain and anxiety. Over 30% of the population avoids the dentist due to fear. More than 50% report being nervous about going to the dentist altogether. You may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry if you have/are any of the following:
- Anxious, phobic, or fearful of dental treatment
- Scared of needles
- Have a severe gag reflex
- Have trouble with traditional oral numbing agents
- Require more treatment in fewer visits
- Have a complex case or extensive, necessary treatments
Our staff is trained and certified in sedation dentistry, using either inhaled, oral, or IV sedation to dull your senses while you remain conscious, removing the need for full anesthesia. Dr. Kuchar is also one of the few dentists in the area that is qualified to perform sedation dentistry.
We also offer lighter forms of sedation for less invasive procedures in the form of laughing gas or oral sedation.
