Sedation Dentistry in the Highview Neighborhood of Louisville, KY
Make your visit more comfortable
Fear of dental procedures is common and normal. If it’s been a while since you’ve been to the dentist, you’ll be happy to know that dentistry has come a long way in the past several years, including increased levels of comfort. You or a family member no longer need to be afraid of a visit to our office, thanks to our advanced dental sedation methods.
Once you’ve experienced relaxed dentistry with Wigger Family Dental, you’ll never be afraid to go to the dentist again. You’ll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment as if you were snoozing. You’ll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished. Because you are completely comfortable, we can do years of dental treatments in one or two visits. We can replace crowns or dentures, restore sore gums to good health, whiten yellow or stained teeth, fix a chipped tooth, and more. People with very busy schedules can get the dental care they need, easily, and quickly. Imagine being able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. No wonder so many patients say, “Relaxed dentistry changed my life.”
Our sedation dentistry is safe and effective, and you’ll feel nothing!

How Does relaxed Dentistry Work?
You are given a small pill to take an hour prior to your dental appointment. Your companion will accompany you to the office. By the time you arrive, you will be very drowsy.
When you arrive at our office, you will be escorted into the comfort room, covered with a thick, warm blanket and placed on a monitor to watch your vital signs. After you are comfortable, Dr. Wigger and the experienced clinical team at Wigger Family Dental will take care of your dental needs.
When your treatment is completed, your companion will return you home to finish your comfortable, relaxing day.
