Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry Columbus
When you need sedation or cosmetic dentistry in Columbus, contact Grove City Dental. At Grove City Dental, you will meet Dr. Scott D. Schumann who will soothe your fears in a calming and relaxing environment. He and his staff gently guide patients through our conscious sedation process for a variety of procedures. Whether your treatments include cosmetic dentistry, dental implants or general dentistry, you can get the dental work you need without the anxiety.
Prior to your appointment, our dentists will give you a prescription for a pill. About an hour before your appointment, you will take the pill. It is important to remember that you will need someone to drive as you will be drowsy. By the time your appointment starts, you will be very relaxed. During your dental procedure, you will be awake, but you will be unaware of the treatment that you are receiving. Once the appointment has concluded, you will feel incredibly relaxed, and you will have little to no memory of the appointment or the work that was done.
Is Conscious Sedation Right for You?
Conscious sedation is not right for every patient, but it may be right for you.
Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who struggle with anxiety during dental repairs, cosmetic procedures or oral surgery. In addition to using the latest medications, we go one step further to ensure that you have your dental work completed in as few appointments as possible. In many cases, same day dentistry with fewer trips to the dental chair will help to decrease the fear and anxiety that you may have experienced in the past.
"PATIENT COMFORT IS OUR TOP PRIORITY"
Now families in South West Columbus, Grove City, Dublin, Hilliard, Circleville and surrounding communities can have their dental work done without succumbing to fear or anxiety. Some of the popular treatments you can have completed with sedation dentistry include dental bonding, bridges, crowns, dentures, composite fillings, inlays and onlays, Lumineers, teeth whitening, or porcelain veneers. In many cases, you can have oral surgery or a root canal completed while you are pleasantly sedated. If you have children who have dental anxiety, we can guide you through the process that will be most helpful to them as they receive the dental care they need to protect their youthful smile.
Get the Dental Work You Need
Regardless of how long it has been since your last appointment, our methods make it easy for you to get the dental work you need so you can reclaim your natural smile. Sometimes our patients choose conscious sedation because it is simply the only numbing method that works well for them. If your gums are sensitive and your biggest fear is having the shots, you may want to explore this option. Similarly, if you have trouble responding to numbing methods, sedation dentistry may be something that you should discuss with Dr. Schumann.
If you feel that your dental fears are preventing you from having a healthy mouth, sedation dentistry is something that you should explore. Patient comfort is always important at Grove City Dental.
