You’re Welcome: Sedation Dentistry is Better Than Ever!

If you made a New Year’s resolution to get healthy in 2017, congratulations! Like most people, you are committed to putting yourself back on that list of priorities.

Now it’s February, and again, like most people, you may have already abandoned your New Year’s resolutions. For the first couple of weeks, you were hitting the gym several times a week. You were incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your diet with relative ease. You even managed to cut back on sweets without wanting to punch anyone in the face…for the most part.

But something happened that derailed your focus. Before you knew it, you were dangerously close to where you are every February: telling yourself you gave it your best shot and that there’s always next year!

Stop right there. We have good news!

We can help you get back on track to better health, and it begins with a trip to the dentist. Yes, your overall health is affected by what’s going on inside your mouth. If you’re one of those people who have put off going to the dentist for too long because you’re afraid, you’re definitely not alone.

Early in his career, Dr. Bessonet noticed just how prevalent dental anxiety is to many patients. It inspired him to pursue continuing education in sedation dentistry. He and our uniquely qualified team at Ascension Premier Dental are dedicated to providing the latest in sedation techniques so we can take the fear out of your next visit to the dentist.

IV Sedation is Like a Dream….Literally!

There may be things about your smile you’d like to change cosmetically. We believe that 2017 is the year for you and that Dr. Bessonet is the dentist you should trust to do it. But first, you need to make sure your smile is healthy. Dr. Bessonet can do just that!

Did you know that he is the person who can ease your fears about going to the dentist so you can finally get back on the road to optimum oral health? He and our caring team of experts at Ascension Premier Dental can offer you the highest level of comfort.

It’s called IV sedation, and it’s an answer to your dental nightmares!

IV sedation is the highest level of sedation available. It’s designed for those who need more help feeling relaxed and comfortable than nitrous oxide or oral sedation can offer. While both nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, and oral sedation are beneficial, IV sedation takes your comfort to the next level.

It will put you in a sleep-like state during your treatment. You’re still able to respond to the dentist during a procedure, but after it’s all over, you won’t recall your appointment at all!

Ascension Premier Dental is on the cutting edge of technology. We are specially trained and licensed in administering IV sedation and can give you just the right dosage to suit your particular needs.

Thanks to our special training and certification in sedation dentistry, we are able to cater a treatment plan completely around your level of comfort. If you’ve neglected your oral health for an extended period of time, you might need a lot of dental work. Our IV sedation allows us to do that without you experiencing any pain or anxiety whatsoever.

You’ll Be Cozy, Too!

Because we want your smile to be as healthy as it can be, we make your comfort a top priority. During your visit with us, you can choose to receive treatment in one of our private oratories.

Enjoy calming music with our headphones to drown out any sounds that give you anxiety, or cozy up with one of our warm blankets. You can even distract yourself with one of your favorite television shows while you’re in the chair.

You don’t have to let one more year go by without the smile you deserve. Your first step is to visit Ascension Premier Dental for a thorough cleaning and examination by Dr. Bessonet.

Call us today at 225-963-5548 or fill out our online contact form, and a member of the team will get in touch with you as quickly as possible to schedule an appointment.
