Sedation dentistry is making it easier than ever before for patients to get the dental care they need without unnecessary stress and discomfort. Even if dental anxiety has kept you out of the dentist’s chair for years, we can help you take control of your dental health.
All kinds of people benefit from sedation dentistry, including:
- People who have an intense fear of dental treatment
- Patients who had prior negative experiences in the dentists chair
- People with strong gag reflexes
- People who are needle phobic
- Patients prone to dental sensitivity, or for whom Novocain is not effective
- People who want to complete multiple dental treatments in a short period of time
Our dental team offers a number of different sedation treatments to meet a wide variety of needs.
- Nitrous Oxide (commonly called “laughing gas”)
- Oral Conscious Sedation
- Intravenous (IV) Sedation
At Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry we also utilize non-pharmacological, environmental strategies to promote patient relaxation. Soothing amenities in our office include:
- Comfortable blankets
- Warm towels
- Calming lighting
- Movies that you can watch during treatment
