Sedation Dentistry for Spring, TX Families
Do you struggle with dental anxiety? For many patients, this very real condition is the primary thing standing between them and a healthier smile. Thankfully, there are ways of helping patients overcome anxious feelings. With sedation dentistry, we make your trip to the dentist a surprisingly comfortable and even enjoyable experience.
Eliminate Dental Fear & Anxiety with Sedation Dentistry
To provide our patients with the best possible care, we offer three great sedation options:
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
More commonly known as laughing gas, this popular solution has been helping patients enjoy anxiety-free care for generations. It's breathed in through a mask and goes to work quickly. It also wears off quickly, allowing you to resume normal activities immediately after leaving our office.
Oral Conscious Sedation
For patients with mild to moderate anxiety, oral conscious sedation is another great option. This method uses a safe and commonly prescribed prescription to help patients manage anxious feelings. You'll simply need to take the medication a predetermined amount of time before your procedure is scheduled to begin. Once your prescription has taken effect, you'll be able to relax comfortably in our dental chair while Dr. LeBlanc helps you with your smile. We are able condense several dental appointments into one well managed single appointment. We routinely see 2-3 sedated patients per week. This type of treatment gives the patient amnesia from the appointment and people remember very little.
Because the effects of oral conscious sedation take time to wear off, you'll need to have a friend or family member drive you home from your appointment. You'll be able to resume normal activities by the next day, if not sooner. It will be the best sleep of your life!
I.V. sedation stands for intravenous sedation and is a great solution for anyone with moderate to severe anxiety. With I.V. sedation, we have greater control over the depth of your sedation, ensuring a comfortable experience every time. I.V. sedation takes time to wear off, though. As with oral conscious sedation, you'll need to have a friend or family member with you.
