They can arise from bad past experiences, overstimulation, and a fear of receiving “bad news,” but fortunately, our team can help you have a more enjoyable visit. We offer multiple forms of sedation dentistry in our Southlake, TX dental office to help calm your mind and allow you to feel more comfortable in the treatment chair.

Nitrous Oxide
Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation dentistry administration system

Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting form of sedation that is administered in-office, once you get comfortable in one of our treatment chairs. We’ll place a small nose mask on you that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. Within a minute, you’ll feel a calming, euphoric wave wash over your body, and we’ll begin your procedure. Whenever our team finishes, we’ll remove the nose mask and have you wait until the effects have completely worn off before sending you on your way.

Dental Sedation

IV sedation is administered directly into the bloodstream, so patients feel the effects immediately. Even though you’ll remain conscious throughout the entire procedure, so you’ll be able to respond to our team, you likely won’t remember a any details about your visit. You’ll also need to have a trusted friend or family member drop you off and pick you up from your appointment.

General anesthesia is administered by our in-house medical anesthesiologist. Before a surgery, our anesthesiologist will administer a combination of medications intravenously, putting you in a sleep-like state. Because you’ll be unconscious, you won’t feel any pain, unlike nitrous oxide and IV conscious sedation.
