We understand that fear can hinder a patient's trip to the dentist and even make them cancel it entirely. Dental fears and anxieties affect tons of potential patients who truly need professional care so their smile and their health won't have to suffer any longer.
Here at Golden Crescent Dental, we offer sedation dentistry so patients can feel at ease and comfortable during their appointment. This can be used for both adults and kids that have a severe fear of the dentist, where we will administer the correct and safe amount of sedation in order for you to feel relaxed.
There are several different kinds of sedation dentistry:
• Nitrous Oxide: Also known as laughing gas, this type of sedation is a mixture of gas and oxygen that's calmly inhaled through a mask. This is carefully administered for the correct amount that will help you relax while your Victoria TX dentist performs your service.
• Oral Sedation: With this option, you will receive a pill that's to be taken an hour prior to your appointment. A specific dosage will be given to you that has been previously determined and will have drowsy, but calming effects on you. It's not uncommon for patients to fall asleep or feel extremely tired.
• IV Sedation: This has the ability to put you in a state of unawareness or unconsciousness with the level of your sedation closely monitored by your dentist. Typically, patients have no recollection of their procedure, but sometimes that is preferred.
