Sedation Dentistry in Lyons and Inman, KS

Did you know that millions of adults experience dental anxiety to such an extent that they avoid simple cleanings and exams for years on end? In fact, a huge percentage of adults will not head to the dental office until pain or discomfort force them to do so. This is why Dr. Brian Kynaston, Dr. Matthew Perry, and Dr. Seth Prochaska of Lyons Dental Care and Inman Dental Care offer sedation dentistry.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Many people make the mistake of believing that sedation dentistry is an option strictly for those having complex or even surgical treatments like implants. However, you can visit Lyons Dental Care and Inman Dental Care for a checkup and cleaning and ask us about sedation.

Why? This is because we understand how difficult dental anxiety can be to overcome, and how it can so badly damage your oral health. We are more than happy to sit down with you and discuss options for everything from cleanings to multiple treatments during a single visit.

We offer both oral sedation using prescription medications as well as nitrous oxide administered just before, and during, treatment. Both are going to provide you with a sense of deep relaxation; so much so, in fact, that many patients feel as if they have napped during treatment.

Typically, patients obtaining sedation dentistry will feel relaxed and say they had a sort of twilight experience in which they recall most of the treatment but do not have any clear or negative memories. They may be unaware of all that was done, and this can really start to change the way they perceive visits to the office.

The Benefits

When looking at sedation dentistry, it is important to remember that there are more benefits than those just mentioned. Our dentists offer sedation options to patients who have dental anxiety, but they also know that it has benefits for others, including:

  • Patients who require multiple treatments during a single visit find that sedation makes it a stress-free experience
  • Those with lower pain thresholds benefit greatly from this option
  • Patients with uncontrolled movements and spasms are able to obtain treatment for any number of issues thanks to sedative effects
  • Younger patients who are incredibly fearful may receive sedation to prevent the development of anxiety

No matter what form of sedation is given, a patient will need someone to transport them to and from treatment, as sedation can leave you feeling a bit foggy.

Clearly, with the different options for sedation and the many benefits it brings, it makes sense to speak with our team about it during your upcoming visit. Do not delay and allow dental conditions to worsen when you can count on mild sedation and anesthesia to make treatment painless and relaxing.
