Competent care in absolute comfort from your Carmel, IN Dentist
Do you need dental care but are afraid of the dentist? Get treated in complete comfort at our guilt-free Indiana dental clinic. Patient comfort is the number one goal of our Really Smile team. That’s why we invest in the latest equipment and facilities. We also offer sedation dentistry for patients with dental anxiety.
Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or inhalation sedation is recommended for patients with mild anxiety. Nitrous oxide helps you relax during the procedure, and the sedative effects wear off quickly so you can resume normal activities.
Sedatives administered orally produce mild to moderate levels of sedation. You are conscious during the procedure, but you may nod off. If you do fall asleep, you can be easily awakened by Dr. Smith. Patients react differently to oral sedatives, and the effects may last longer for some people.
Compared to oral sedation, the effects of IV sedation are easier to control and predict. IV sedatives take effect immediately after injection into a vein. Most patients are conscious during the procedure, but some may feel sleepy. Dr. Smith can easily awaken you and adjust the dosage if necessary.
A dental clinic doesn’t have to smell like one. Our Really Smile clinic uses spa scents to promote ultimate relaxation. Feel comfortable and at ease from the moment you step into our office.
Our tensing room helps you reach your desired level of comfort. The room is set up just like an aromatherapy or massage room at a spa. There is soft lighting, relaxing spa scents and gentle music. Patients who spend some time in the tensing room are more comfortable and at ease during their procedure.
