Sedation Dentistry - Garland

The Stress-Free Zone Just Got Better

Looking for a sedation dentist and feeling a little sheepish about it? Hey! There’s no need to be embarrassed about feeling nervous. We know that any kind of medical procedure can be nerve-wracking–especially when it involves the vulnerability of holding your mouth open for someone to work in. As important and necessary as it is, for some people it just isn’t easy. The truth is, even dentists and hygienists get nervous when it’s their turn to have dental work. That’s why we think offering sedation dentistry to anyone who needs it is so important. What makes you nervous? What gets your anxiety going? What keeps you from your necessary dental appointments? Do you:

  • Suffer from dental phobia?
  • Have a strong gag reflex?
  • Have difficulty getting comfortable sitting for long periods?
  • Feel like you can never get numb, even with high doses of Novocain?
  • Hate the sounds and smells of the dental office?
  • Have special needs that make getting dental care difficult?
  • Have extremely sensitive teeth?
  • Have limited time to get your dental treatment completed?
  • Have a complex case or need surgery?
  • Deny or ignore your dental problems until you are in pain?
  • Feel claustrophobic in the dental chair?

Whatever makes dentistry difficult, we’ve got you covered. Just ask.

That’s ok. Try us. Pick up the phone and see how it feels. Our super-friendly office staff is so compassionate and kind, you’ll feel more like you are calling a friend than a dental office. We have also made sure our office is so warm, homey, and soothing, that visits never feel scary or clinical. We’ll pamper the nervousness right out of you! But if you need a little something to take the edge off before you even get here, ask us about oral sedation.

Oral sedation involves a prescription anti-anxiety pill. Just get someone to drive you to your appointment, take your relaxant, and by the time you get here, you will feel nice and carefree. You might feel a little sleepy, which is just fine. Ask us for a blanket and a neck pillow and take a nap. If you aren’t all that dozy, ask for a movie or some music to keep you entertained and before you know it, all your treatment is finished and you can be driven home. It’s usually a good idea to take a little time off before you drive to work or operate any machinery. Enjoy the break!

Don’t worry. Really. We have serious help right here with IV sedation. IV sedation is incredibly effective and keeps you completely comfortable so that you can sleep through any appointment. There is never a concern about numbness, gagging, wiggling too much, aching muscles or long procedures. So many of our Garland patients are relieved to find that they are able to sit through even the most extensive procedures with absolutely no discomfort. Even our elderly or disabled patients find that sedation dentistry makes sitting for prolonged periods more comfortable with no lingering stiffness or soreness. Unlike oral sedation or other relaxation methods, IV sedation is easily controlled for optimum sedation. The level of medication can be immediately increased if you are not sedated enough. And of course, we are with you, monitoring your vital signs, to ensure that you are safe and relaxed throughout the dental procedure.

No problem! The traditional method of relaxation – Nitrous Oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas – is your ticket to ride…or, maybe we should say, your ticket to smile! Nitrous oxide is so gentle and safe, we can even use it with kids and special needs patients. And once your appointment is over, we will administer a little pure oxygen and the effects are reversed! Head to school or work and be productive while you show off your healthy smile!
