Sedation Dentistry

Dental Sedation in Yukon, OK

There are many patients who choose not to visit the dentist because they are too fearful. Bad experiences in the past may have led to significant dental anxiety that prevents you from getting the care you need.

Although dental fear is understandable, it should not get in the way of your oral health. At SmileArts Dental Studio, we offer sedation options in Yukon that put patients at ease during their treatment. Schedule an appointment today to see how we can help you have a healthy smile while staying cozy.

What Sedation Options Are Available?

Dr. Cohenour offers IV sedation for patients who are candidates. IV sedation is administered into the vein and lets you enter a state of relaxation. Although you are still conscious for your procedure, you feel disconnected and unconcerned with the treatment. This sedation option gives you the opportunity to go through extensive or lengthy procedures that anxiety or discomfort may have otherwise made impossible.

IV sedation is not to be confused with general anesthesia, which renders people unconscious. With IV sedation, you are still in control of your body, but in a twilight state that keeps you from experiencing discomfort.

Is Sedation Right for You?

If you experience dental anxiety, it is important to address your concerns with our staff. The more we understand your fear of the dentist, the better we can accommodate you during your appointment. Sedation will benefit you if you have dental anxiety, a poor gag reflex, or are undergoing a more invasive procedure. Patients who have special needs may also use sedation to keep them calm.

Dr. Cohenour will go over the specific fears that you have and choose a method of treatment that gets you the care you need. Our goal is to help you feel more comfortable visiting the dentist so that you continue to schedule regular appointments.

Is Sedation Safe?

Dental sedation is by far one of the safest and effective methods for individuals who cannot undergo dental treatment on their own. The medication used generally has fewer side effects and wears off within a matter of hours. Most patients appreciate sedation because they can return to their daily routine the next day.

However, the strength of IV sedation will make it unsafe for you to drive to and from your appointment. We require that you coordinate traveling to and from your appointment before administering sedation.
