Stress should not prevent you from receiving the cleaning, check-ups, and other care services you require. We offer multiple sedation options to suit the needs of each patient we see. Just mention that you are interested in sedation services when making an appointment to see Dr. Mark Glime, Dr. Adam Koch, or Dr. Brian Koch.
A surprising number of people experience stress and anxiety when undergoing dental care services. If you have ever felt this way, you are not alone. We are dedicated to making patients feel as comfortable as possible, so we offer oral and inhalation sedation options. Both have many advantages that make them ideal for patients:
A single pill is taken a half hour prior to the appointment. This is a good option for patients who are afraid of needles. The patient remains conscious and deeply relaxed through the entire experience. Because of the sedative effect, the patient needs to be driven both to and from the appointment.
Nitrous oxide has been used to relax patients for more than a century; it has been widely studied and is one of the safest forms of sedation available. It is administered through a mask placed over the patient’s nose. The patient experiences a deep, calm relaxation and may remember little to nothing of their appointment. The effects of the nitrous dissipates quickly and the patient can drive and return to normal activities.
Many patients are ideal candidates for sedation dentistry in Green Bay. If you would like to know more about these services, simply contact our friendly office staff at (920) 437-3376. They will be happy to assist you in any way they can. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
