Whether you suffer from severe dental anxiety or simple nervousness when going to the dentist, you are not alone! Many patients have anxiety when seeing the dentist, and at Family Dentistry of Frisco, we take your comfort and experience in the dental chair very seriously.
Our dentist, Dr. Paresh B. Patel, is pleased to offer IV sedation, Nitrous Oxide and oral sedation for our patients to optimize your comfort level during treatment. Depending on the type of treatment you are undergoing, one of these anxiety-relieving sedation medications may be all you need to stay calm and relaxed to enjoy your visit.
Nitrous Oxide (N2O)
You might know it as laughing gas which calms you when you inhale it. This tranquil effect stops shortly after you stop breathing in the gas, and you can drive yourself home and go about your day normally.
Taking a dentist-prescribed pill helps manage your mild to moderate anxiety and can even help you sleep well the night before your appointment. You will need a ride to and from your dental visit, and while in the chair you will feel lightly sedated and relaxed.
Accessing a vein, this sedation method involves having medication delivered directly into your bloodstream. The effect is immediate and our team will control the flow. You can stay awake during your treatment or fall asleep if you prefer. You will need a ride home after your treatment is complete.
When it comes to sedation dentistry, our team’s goal is to make sure you are relaxed and calm while being monitored for safety. Thanks to sedation, you no longer have to avoid your dental appointments because of dental anxiety! Please call (469) 362-3150 to schedule your next dental visit with Dr. Paresh B. Patel in Frisco, Texas.
