Sedation Dentistry | Adult Sedation Dentistry | Sedation Dentistry in McCordsville


Nearly half of all North Americans don’t go to the dentist every year. 
The number one reason, according to the American Dental Association, is fear.  But fear isn’t the only reason.  People have busy lives and little time for repeated visits to the dentist. Some don't see the importance of keeping their teeth.  And there are a host of other reasons as well. 
Whatever your reason, or the reasons for someone close to you, know this – you are not alone! Sedation Dentistry is here to help you, as it has so many other patients, safely and effectively get the care you need in a safe and comfortable environment for the best dental experience you’ve ever had.
This isn’t a One Size Fits All
Each patient is unique. That means that whatever medications you may be taking, dental treatments needed, or the years away from the dentist – there is a safe and effective way to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Sedatives are given to patients a variety of ways, including by mouth, under the tongue, inhaled through the nose or intravenously (through the veins). The vast majority of those receiving sedation within a dental office will take the medication orally. In fact, millions of oral sedatives are prescribed by doctors every single day.

Nitrous Oxide
Do you just need the edge off?  Nitrous oxide is an odorless and colorless gas. Dentistry has relied upon nitrous oxide since 1844.
Nitrous oxide sedation falls within the mildest category of sedation. Patients may feel tingling or a sense of well-being. However, they remain alert. Once inhalation is discontinued the effects end also, often within seconds. 
Nitrous oxide sedation carries few if any side effects and produces no known allergic response. For these reasons, it makes a nearly ideal form of anxiety relief in the contemporary dental office. 
Patients love the benefits of oral sedation.  You are responsive the whole time.  You can answer questions and open wide!  What patients like most, is the amnesia effect.  You simply don’t remember the sights and sounds that come with a visit to the dentist.  In fact, hours seem like minutes. The teams at our offices take very good care of you too!  You’re never left alone and all of your needs are met. 
You might have heard oral sedation called 'relaxation', 'sleep' or 'anxiety free' dentistry and is quickly becoming the standard of care in dental practices everywhere. 
People used to think IV was the only form of sedation.  A benefit of IV sedation is the faster onset of the sedative medications, meaning you'll be able to feel the effects more quickly.  For those patients who have a fear of needles, IV sedation may not be appropriate unless an oral sedative is provided before the appointment.

Dentist in Geist | LADD Dental Group

Dentist in Geist | LADD Dental Group   Dr. David Geiger is excited about joining  LADD Dental Group  in McCordsville for many reasons. A Geist native, Dr. Geiger graduated from Lawrence Central High School and attended  DePauw University  in Greencastle before meeting his wife Kelsey in dental school at the  University of Louisville  back in 2015. Kelsey decided to join the Air Force and the couple was stationed in California for a year after dental school, followed by Missouri where Dr. Geiger has honed his oral surgery skills. Even while venturing out to the west coast after finishing dental school, Dr. Geiger always had his sights set on eventually returning to the Hoosier state where he grew up. Last summer Dalton Albertin, director of marketing and business development with LADD Dental Group , reached out to Dr. Geiger about joining the LADD team at its McCordsville office , which opened in November of 2017. After Kelsey completed her service in the Air Force, the coupl
