Sit Back and Relax: Sedation Dentistry in Richardson TX

April 20, 2018

Millions of Americans cope with dental anxiety. There mere thought of sitting down in a dentist’s chair fills them with dread. In some cases, it’s so intense they’ll avoid the dentist altogether. If this sounds at all like you, you should know that Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry can provide you with sedation dentistry to get you through your procedure.

For a patient with anxiety, avoiding the dentist seems logical enough. Common causes of dental anxiety include fear of pain, fear of injections, and a loss of control as you sit in the chair.

Fair enough. But avoiding the dentist is never a good idea, because it puts your dental health at risk. There’s a good reason that we recommend seeing the dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup: no matter how good a job you do at home, brushing and flossing simply cannot do it all.

Sedation dentistry is a safe and simple way of getting your dental work done without sending your anxiety level through the roof. We provide three types of sedation:

  • Nitrous oxide, commonly called laughing gas. It may not make you laugh, but it will make you very relaxed. It is safe and effective and has been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation. This involves taking a sedative about an hour before your appointment. You’ll remain awake but be very sleepy, and not very aware of what’s going on around you. You’ll need to have a ride home afterward.
  • IV Sedation. Administered intravenously, it will make you very drowsy. You probably will not sleep, but you will be mostly unaware of what is going on. You will need someone to drive you home.

If you have been neglecting your teeth because of fears or concerns, talk to us at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry about sedation dentistry. We don’t want anyone putting their dental health at risk. We also provide general dentistry, and popular cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
