Sedation Dentistry in Columbus

Relaxing TreatmentHere at Polaris Dental Care we want our patients to feel comfortable and experience a relaxing and welcoming environment when they visit us. Fear or anxiety can prevent some people from seeking dental care that is why our team provides sedation dentistry services to treat this issue and help our patients feel at ease when they seek dental treatment. There are several options available that offer safe alternatives to relax and block the pain during long and complicated procedures as well as shorter easy procedures.

Types of Dental Sedation

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly known as laughing gas, this sedation method allows the patient to breathe the sedative through a mask and feel relaxed yet compliant and responsive during the procedure. Oxygen is administered at the end of the procedure to counteract the effects of the nitrous oxide sedative.

Oral Sedatives

Oral sedatives such as pills are taken orally before the procedure, allow the patient to feel relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.

Your dentist will go over your medical history with you and discuss which sedation method is better for you depending on the type of procedure you will be having. We want your visits and treatments to be comfortable and relaxing and pain-free.

What our patient says

"I have been treated like family by the entire dental team since day one. Dr. Khan has excellent bedside manner, and he takes the time to listen to my needs and concerns as a patient. He is honest about what I(patient) need verses what I want cosmetically, lol! The entire team has been very supportive of me during my family crisis. There have been times when I have missed appointments and forgot to cancel within 24 hours…..I could go on and on. Bottom line is….I am blessed to have such a great Dentist and dental family. They take excellent care of me."
