Sedation Dentistry

See what Roger has to say
about Sedation Dentistry
Are you afraid of the dentist? Surprisingly, many adults have a deep-seated fear of the dentist. Sometimes it is because of the media, talk about negative dental experiences from friends, or a personally bad experience at the dental office in the past. No matter what the reasoning behind a patient's fear of the dentist's chair, Dr. Kevin Rykard can help!

Sedation dentistry allows Dr. Rykard the opportunity to put patients at ease and help them have a positive experience at the dentist. Oral medication is taken before their visit, requiring the patient to line up transportation to and from their appointment. Patients are awake, conscious, and are able to answer questions and converse with the dentist throughout the procedure. However, due to the amnesic effect of the medication, the patient will wake up the following day with no recollection of the entire appointment. This allows Dr. Rykard the opportunity to provide full mouth restorations in just one appointment, saving both patient and dentist time and money.

Dr. Rykard has been offering sedation dentistry to patients in greater Oklahoma City and the surrounding area for well over a decade, and has found that most of his patients thoroughly enjoy this option. In fact, many patients get to the point that they no longer require sedation once they have overcome their fears. Oral sedation dentistry does not require needles as IV sedation does, making it a comfortable and easy alternative to other forms of sedation dentistry offered.

With the training and expertise to offer sedation dentistry, Dr. Rykard is proud to provide patients with this alternative to fearing their appointments and avoiding the oral health care they need. All patients under sedation dentistry are carefully monitored throughout the procedure to ensure there are no complications. Dr. Rykard and his staff have training and certification in oral sedation dentistry.

Dr. Rykard loves the ability to be able to get his patients to a state of health, while avoiding the complications and uneasiness that many patients feel about sitting in the dental chair. If you are interested in oral conscious sedation dentistry, call Dr. Kevin Rykard today at (405) 752-2626. to schedule a consultation appointment and see if sedation will allow you to enjoy the dentist's office!
Dr. Rykard saved my teeth! I was so afraid of the dentist I had not even had my teeth cleaned in over 10 years. I had multiple traumatic experiences in my past, so I had given up on my teeth. I had gotten a recommendation for Dr. Rykard from a friend of mine to try him for my son, who has autism. My son had never successfully been to a dentist in the past and had a tooth that was broken in half and giving him a lot of pain. After I saw with amazement the use of sedation dentistry on my son, I thought I would give it a try myself. It was so amazing to go to a dentist and not even remember what had happened. Since that first visit I have been back many times, and I have a wonderful set of fully functioning beautiful teeth, as does my son! And we both owe it all to him and his wonderful staff! They take good care of us and they will take good care of you too!
