Sedation Dentistry Toledo, OH

At Hires Dental Care in Toledo OH, we offer a variety of sedation dentistry options to help you receive comfortable dental care. Sedation dentistry enables you to undergo a dental treatment, or more than one treatment, while in a euphoric state even though you are alert and responsive. Our caring staff is committed to helping our patients feel at home in our family-friendly dentist office. We understand that there are many factors that can prevent someone from visiting the dentist at least twice a year. We keep this in mind, and foster a judgement-free dentist office to help every patient feel relaxed during their visits.

To help relieve dental anxiety during your visit, we also offer a variety of comfort amenities including a spa-like atmosphere and massaging treatment chairs. However, if these methods do not help alleviate some of your anxieties, Dr. J. Eric Hires, Dr. Nithya Nagaraj, and Dr. Shreea Handa can discuss conscious sedation options during your initial appointment.

Avoiding the dentist often results in poor dental health and the development of complex dental problems. Our dentists are committed to helping patients feel at ease throughout their dental visit to restore a healthy smile and prevent future dental concerns. We work with patients on an individual basis to provide the right solution to your dental anxiety so that you can regain a healthy smile.

Sedation Dentistry Options

  • Oral Conscious Sedation: This form is administered via pill. You will feel awake during dental procedures, but will not fear the stress or tension you may commonly experience during a dental visit. Oral conscious sedation does not require needles to administer and is less expensive than IV sedation. You will be required to take a pill about an hour before treatment. Since this leaves you in a relaxed and drowsy state, you will need transportation to and from your dentist appointment.
  • Nitrous Oxide: or commonly known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask that delivers an odorless gas which relaxes and calms you. This form of sedation is extremely effective and safe. Many patients prefer this treatment because once the masked is removed, all effects disappear and you are able to return to your normal activity.
  • IV Sedation: aThis form of sedation is administered through an IV. It eliminates pain and anxiety during dental treatments. The benefit of IV sedation is that the chosen medication is administered into the bloodstream for an almost immediate effect. It can be continually adjusted. Allowing us to adjust the dosage will help sedate you faster as well as recover your normal state in a timely manner.
