At Hires Dental Care in Toledo, OH, we offer a variety of sedation dentistry options to help our fearful patients receive comfortable dental care. Our caring staff is committed to helping our patients feel at home in our newly remodeled dentist office.
Hires Dental Care also offers a variety of comfort amenities including a spa-like atmosphere and massaging treatment chairs to help our anxious patients relax during their visits. However, if these methods do not help to alleviate some of your anxieties, Dr. J. Eric Hires, Dr. Nithya Nagaraj, and Dr. Shreea Handa can discuss medication options at a special sedation dentistry appointment.
Sedation Dentistry Options
- Oral sedation: 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.
- Nitrous Oxide: also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is administered through a mask that delivers an odorless gas which relaxes and calms you.
- IV sedation: Hires Dental Care offers IV sedation, which eliminates pain and anxiety during treatment. It is administered through an IV, to allow accuracy in the delivery of the sedating medication.
