Take the Stress Out of Dental Care with Sedation

Sometimes, patients may feel nervous or anxious regarding a specific treatment that they must undergo. For some, just the thought of visiting the dentist is enough to trigger higher levels of anxiety and fear. We want to make everyone to be comfortable, so we offer patients a choice of personalized dental sedation options. That includes nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. We can administer a mild to moderate sedative as a gas that you inhale through a comfortable mask (nitrous oxide). You can also take sedation as an oral medication, which comes in liquid or pill form. After a careful examination and personal consultation, we’ll help you determine which option is best for you.

When Sedation Is Appropriate

Patients who experience dental phobia often benefit most from dental sedation. Their anxiety can make it difficult to maintain a regular schedule of preventive visits, which increases their risks of developing a dental disease. Sedation can help make each visit more comfortable and encourage patients to attend every appointment, improving their long-term oral and overall health. Sedation can also be an advantage for patients who require extensive restorative treatment. The ability to remain calm and relaxed for longer periods of time helps your dentist complete more of your procedure at one time, reducing the overall amount of time it takes to complete your treatment.

Relax with Personalized Dental Sedation

Dental sedation is tailored for your specific level of anxiety and extent of treatment, and it’s safe enough for patients of all ages to enjoy its benefits. For more information, schedule a consultation by calling Family Dental Corner in Richmond, TX, today at 832-980-9111.
