Here at DentalSpa, we understand patients may avoid visiting the dentist due to a fear of pain. Avoiding the dentist often results in poor dental health and the development of complex dental problems. Dr. Amy Marckese is committed to helping patients feel at ease throughout their dental visit to restore a healthy smile and prevent future dental concerns. We work with patients on an individual basis to provide the right solution to your dental anxiety so that you can regain a healthy smile.
Sedation dentistry is an important part of modern dentistry, allowing patients with dental anxiety to maintain their oral health and overall quality of life. Sedation dentistry enables a patient to undergo a dental treatment, or more than one treatment, while in a euphoric state even though they are alert and responsive.
Common forms of sedation dentistry
- Nitrous Oxide: or commonly known as laughing gas, Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask and allows you to be relaxed while remaining awake during the dental treatment. This form of sedation is extremely effective and safe. Many patients prefer this treatment because once the masked is removed, all effects disappear and you are able to return to your normal activity.
- Relaxation Techniques: with our spa amenities, you may forget you are at the dentist. We offer patients massages and a paraffin wax treatment to help relax. Our treatment rooms also have TV and music available to reduce anxious feelings.
Dr. Amy serves as a general, cosmetic, and restorative dentist to the Indianapolis community. Avoiding the dentist because of a fear of pain can compromise your smile, self-esteem, comfort and overall health.
