Did you know that over half of our population (almost 145 million Americans) avoids dental care out of fear of pain? If the thought of going to the dentist makes you feel anxious, sedation dentistry can help you feel comfortable.
The most important person in our office is the patient. We want to make sure you get the dental care you need in the most comfortable environment. We offer sedation dentistry to meet the unique needs of our anxious, fearful, or busy dental patients, because your comfort and peace of mind are our first concern.
Our sedation options will help you deal with the fear and anxiety that sometimes accompany a visit to the dentist. In addition to helping you overcome your fear and anxiety, another advantage of sedation dentistry is that it allows us to perform several treatments in a single visit. In most cases, you’ll remember little if anything about the time spent; it will feel like you were in the office for only a few minutes. Sedation could be an excellent option if you have:
- Difficulty overcoming anxiety about the dentist
- A low pain threshold
- Very sensitive teeth
- A very strong gag reflex
- A large amount of work that needs to be done
At the Center for Implant and General Dentistry, we use a personalized, custom sedation plan that accounts for each person’ needs and fears.
We use the latest sedation techniques, including nitrous oxide (known as laughing gas), oral-conscious sedation and IV sedation. The type of sedation you may want to use depends on several factors including the type of procedure we are helping you with, your personal level of discomfort and your safety.
Using these safe sedation techniques, we have successfully treated thousands of fearful, anxious patients.
Sedation Dentistry is ideal for people in Lindale, TX who:
- Have a High Fear of Visiting the Dentist
- Hate the Noises, Smells and Tastes Associated with Dental Care
- Have Had Traumatic Dental Experiences
- Hate Needles and Shots
- Have Difficulty Getting Numb
- Are Afraid or Embarrassed About Their Teeth
- Have a Bad Gag Reflex
- Have Very Sensitive Teeth
Our patients who use sedation dentistry are always amazed by how well it works and how time goes by quickly. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home after your appointment, and the rest of the day, you should plan to relax.
