When you have dental anxiety, we understand and won’t minizine your dental phobias. Instead, our team will recommend options to help people feel calm and relaxed, even if they have special needs or dental fears. At our orthodontic office in Mansfield, TX, our team can provide sedation to keep you conscious and comfortable!
When Do You Need a Calming Solution?
We could recommend this for patients undergoing more extensive treatments, such as tooth extraction or dental implant placement, to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the entire process. If you have dental anxiety, which makes undergoing even minor procedures difficult, we can help you enter a calm and relaxed state. This is also helpful for those with special needs too!
Choosing the Right One for You
Our team will take a number of factors into account when we choose the right calming option for you. We will look at your medical history and any medications you’re currently taking. We also take age and weight into account, as well as anxiety levels or special needs. From there, we can choose the best option for you. Both will allow you to stay conscious, even if you have little to no memory of the procedure at all.
The most common form is nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. We administer this through a mask over your nose. You inhale the gas and enter a calm and relaxed state. This state of euphoria lasts throughout the procedure and can be adjusted as needed. Once the treatment ends, so dos the effects of the medication, so you can drive home or even return to work or school afterward.
For a deep state of calm, we have oral conscious sedation, which is administered before the procedure in a pill or liquid form. We will recommend avoiding food and drink in the hours before the procedure. Be sure you wear loose and comfortable clothing too! The deep state of calm will take time to wear off, so be sure you have friends or family members available to bring you home afterward.
If you have any questions about how we keep you comfortable and calm during your treatment, or about our treatment options, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to make sure you can obtain the results that you need to smile with confidence, and that 2024 is the year you enjoy your best smile.
