Hassle-Free and Safe Sedation Options
Many dentists simply offer a sedation pill to help their patients relax. The problem with the pill is that the dosage is hard to control and the effects may quickly wear off during the appointment. At Grandview Dental Care, we are one of the few Columbus dentists licensed to perform IV sedation to help you completely relax in a controlled state of sedation.
This advanced form of dentistry, called sedation dentistry, enables our doctors to completely treat you with a pain-free dental procedure. The many benefits of IV sedation include:
- Delivers the correct dosage of sedative needed for your particular case
- Completely relaxes you without putting you completely under; eliminates the fear factor so that you can get the treatment you need
- Saves you time by allowing the doctor to perform more work in a single appointment
- If you haven’t been to the dentist in awhile, allows for multiple treatments to be done at once, instead of spreading them out over several appointments, minimizing the time commitment for the patient
- Makes it possible for you to respond to simple commands from our doctors during the procedure
- Causes short term memory loss so that you will not remember the procedure
Many people experience nervousness or uneasy feelings about the dentist. Some patients fear the sounds and sights of the traditional dentist office and avoid much-needed treatment. Other patients prefer to have all of their oral care needs taken care of during a single appointment. If you feel uneasy about going to the dentist, know that we have options to help you receive the dental care you need without the pain and anxiety!
Advanced Monitoring and Care
At Grandview Dental Care, we are committed to ensure that your sedation appointment is completely safe. Using state of the art technology, such as pulsemeters and blue-tooth precordio periscopes, our team monitors your vitals and listens to every breath you take while sedated.
In addition, Dr. Thompson is one of the few dentists in Columbus, Ohio with a Conscious Sedation Dentistry Permit. He has undergone an extensive certification process that includes a rigid training program to safely administer and monitor anesthesia in our office. Dr. Thompson continues to partake in new training every two years to retain licensure and assure a safe environment for our patients.
