Are you, or is a family member, anxious about going to the dentist? Has a past experience with pain or discomfort caused you to start panicking when you think about having your teeth worked on? Does this make you avoid the dentist? Sedation dentistry from The Lewisville Dentist may be right for you.
Millions of Americans have dental anxiety to one degree or another. Sedation dentistry has helped countless people get the dental treatment they need. It is not an experimental procedure; in fact, some form of sedation has been used safely since the 1800s.
At The Lewisville Dentist in Lewisville TX, we offer:
- Nitrous oxide. Better known as laughing gas, it’s been used as a dental sedative for more than a century.
- Oral conscious sedation. This involves taking a sedative that won’t put you to sleep, but will make you very relaxed.
- IV sedation. As the name indicates, this is administered intravenously. It won’t make you sleep, either, but will put you in a deep state of relaxation.
Nitrous oxide takes effect quickly and wears off quickly. With oral conscious sedation and IV sedation, however, you will need someone to drive you home afterward, and you should plan to take the rest of the day off.
Regardless of the type and level of sedation you decide to use, we proceed with patience and understanding. Sedation dentistry helps with making your dental visit peaceful so we can treat all of your troubles. Taking care of cavities, infections, and other pressing problems brings peace of mind and reduces the risk of further damage including tooth loss.
