If you struggle with anxiety about visiting the dentist, you are not alone. Many patients in and around Glen Carbon, Illinois, avoid getting dental work done because of these fears. Fortunately, visiting a sedation dentist who does sedation, such as oral conscious sedation and IV sedation, is the first step in getting necessary treatments without feeling anxious about the upcoming visit. Oral conscious sedation and IV sedation is used by Dr. Kevin Kellerman at Kellerman Dental to alleviate dental fears and anxieties for patients of all ages.
Our dentists describe oral conscious sedation as a type of sedation that uses a prescription medication taken before the appointment to alleviate anxiety and fear. Patients arrange transportation to the office as they should not be driving while the prescription medication works. Patients arrive relaxed, calm, and able to answer questions and follow instructions. Our team can complete the necessary dental work before the patient returns home to rest. Later in the day, they will have little to no recollection of their appointment, but their dental work will be complete!
Oral conscious sedation offers patients several benefits.
For any questions you may have regarding oral conscious sedation or IV sedation, please do not hesitate to contact us at Kellerman Dental!
