Dr. Gregory Wych of Irmo, SC recently introduced the use of oral sedation at The Art of Dentistry in Irmo, SC as a method of helping his patients enjoy more relaxing, anxiety-free dental treatments. Sedation dentistry allows patients to have multiple procedures performed during one office visit due to the state of relaxation achieved with the oral sedative. This saves time and helps the patient to have a better experience overall.
Dr. Wych is a member of the Doctors for Oral Conscious Sedation Group and participates in ongoing education to remain current on the latest trends in dentistry.
“Oral sedation allows me to complete more treatments for my patients during one visit because the problems of fatigue and pain are eliminated,” said Dr. Wych, sedation dentist in Irmo, SC. “We can often do work in a single visit that might normally take up to eight visits to complete. This saves our patients time and makes treatment more convenient.”
Patients report excellent outcomes, with many stating that their worries about visiting the dentist have been alleviated with their use of oral sedatives. Dr. Gregory Wych and his team are committed to offering patients the comfort and respect they deserve.
“Everyone on staff is very friendly and professional,” said Elaine H., one of Dr. Wych’s patients. “I have complete confidence not only with Dr. Wych, but with his staff as well.”
For patients who wish to take advantage of the oral sedation option, the dentist prescribes a sedative pill that can be picked up at a local pharmacy and taken approximately an hour before their visit. Patients will have a friend or family member drive them to the office, where dental work is completed during the patient’s relaxed and drowsy state. Patients are conscious for the duration of all procedures but will have little or no memory of their visit.
“While I do my best to make sure my patients are as comfortable as possible during their procedures, I recognize that many people have anxiety about visiting the dentist for a variety of reasons,” said Dr. Gregory Wych. “My staff and I are so pleased to be offering this alternative to those people who may be fearful of having their teeth worked on. We can now provide a comfortable and easy way for our patients to get the beautiful smiles they have always wanted.”
Along with the comfort and convenience of oral sedation, Dr. Gregory Wych and his team provide a full range of dental services such as whitening, cleaning, fillings, implants, crowns, and TMJ treatment. He is also a certified Fastbraces and Invisalign dentist in Irmo, SC. Dr. Wych is a graduate of the Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry and an alumnus of the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. He is a member of the American Dental Association and actively participates in “Give Back a Smile,” a program which restores smiles for domestic violence victims.
