Anxiety-Free Endodontic Treatment

Why We Would Recommend Sedation During Your Appointment?

We know that the prospect of getting dental work done can be frightening for some individuals. It’s called dental phobia, and it’s something millions of Americans experience. At our practice, we use sedation to help our patients feel anxiety-free and relaxed during their treatment. If you suffer from dental phobia, we may recommend one of several types of sedation after reviewing your medical history.

Types Of Sedation Dentistry At Advanced Endodontics of Texas

Nitrous oxide is commonly called laughing gas. There are several reasons to use nitrous oxide rather than complete sedation. It has been the primary way that doctors have helped relieve patients from anxiety. The gas is inhaled through your nose and will help you feel more comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment. Patients who choose to use nitrous are able to resume normal daily activities by the time the treatment is finished.

Oral sedation involves taking a medication at our office prior to your scheduled treatment time.  There are a variety of different medications that we may use to provide a comfortable level of sedation. It will be up to your medical history and the recommendation of our doctors to decide which one will be your best choice. Oral sedation requires that you have a ride home from your appointment. You’ll want to have a trustworthy family member or friend take you home. If additional or alternative sedation needs are required, be sure to let your doctor know so that we may better help you feel comfortable.
