If you are putting off much needed dental treatment because of dental anxiety, our Dentistry in Frisco team can help! Thanks to sedation dentistry, you never have to put off dental care because of the fear of discomfort. Today’s sedation dentistry options can help you feel calm, relaxed and comfortable while you are undergoing any kind of dental care.
Nitrous oxide (N20) sedation is also known as laughing gas. You simply inhale this nitrogen-oxygen mixture while wearing a mask. As you calmly breathe in and out, you will feel relaxed, comfortable, and might even notice a feeling of euphoria. The effects of this sedation method wear off within minutes of taking off the mask, and you will be able to drive yourself home as usual after your treatment.
This conscious sedation method is easy to take, you just take a pill before you get here, and you’ll still be awake during your treatment. The pill creates an amnesic effect so you feel calm, relaxed and great during your treatment. You will have to bring a driver to take you to and from your appointment, and you may not remember much during your time in the dental chair.
IV (Intravenous) Sedation
Considered a conscious sedation treatment, you will be awake, aware of your surroundings and able to follow our dentist’s instructions. Before choosing this option, you will meet with Dr. Paresh B. Patel to review your medical history and other information to make sure this choice of sedation is a good one. Since this medication is administered directly into your bloodstream, you will be made comfortable and will be monitored throughout your treatment. You may not remember much about the treatment and will need a driver to take you home and stay with you until the sedation has worn off.
If our sedation dentistry options give you hope to finally have needed treatment done, we invite you to call Family Dentistry of Frisco at (469) 362-3150 today. Dr. Patel and our team are excited to provide you with the high-quality dental care you deserve with the dental sedation of your choice in Frisco, Texas!
