Sedation Dentistry Relieves Anxiety And Helps You Relax During Treatment

McKinney Dentist goes the extra mile when it comes to patient comfort.  Ask us about sedation dentistry when you come in.

Do You Fear the Dentist?

Are you one of the millions of people who fear the dentist? If so, you are not the only one. Dental anxiety and fear is one of the leading factors that keeps people from receiving the dental care they need. Whether it be from a bad past experience, fear of needles or embarrassment, it is never a good idea to put off dental care as problems can worsen and require more extensive treatment.

 

To help more patients receive the dental care they need, we offer effective sedation, including advanced IV sedation and general anesthesia performed by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Patients who choose sedation dentistry enjoy calming and nearly painless dental appointments, helping them to get the care they need to enjoy the smile they deserve.

The Quality of Care You Deserve

Patients who experience sedation dentistry often enjoy an improved experience at the dentist. When you no longer have anything to fear from dental procedures, you can more easily get the quality of care you need and enjoy a healthier mouth that is free of pain. Many times, patients with tooth pain due to an infected tooth try to live with the pain until it becomes unbearable due to dental anxiety. But with sedation, you can experience a virtually painless treatment that will alleviate the source of tooth pain or allow you to achieve the dream smile you have hoped for.

Our Sedation Options​

Nitrous oxide

This form of sedation involves the patient wearing a mask over their nose during treatment. Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting gas that will quickly put patients at ease. The effect quickly wears off once the mask is removed from the patient.

Oral sedation

Oral sedation is administered via a pill taken before your procedures begin. Once the pill takes effect, patients typically feel very relaxed. You will be able to respond to commands from our doctors, but many patients do not remember their procedure afterwards. With this type of sedation we require that a family member or loved one be present with you at this appointment to safely take you home.

IV sedation

IV sedation is an advanced form of sedation that puts patients into a deep sleeping state where they will not remember any of the procedure. We contract with a board-certified anesthesiologist to perform IV sedation, which is often used when you are undergoing a more extensive procedure such as wisdom teeth extraction or full arch dental implants. With this type of sedation we require that a family member or loved one be present with you at this appointment to safely take you home.
