Does the thought of sitting in a dental chair fill you with fear? Do you feel nervous, or even anxious, leading up to or during dental appointments? To help those with dental fears feel at ease, Drs. Deore and Jones may recommend sedation dentistry in Coppell, Texas. Sedation dentistry is the use of medication to help anxious patients feel relaxed during dental treatments. At Coppell Smiles, we offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation.
With nitrous oxide, our dentists will place a small mask over your nose. Through this, you will breathe a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. You will remain awake, but the gas will help you to feel relaxed. Our dentists can control the amount of sedation you receive. After your treatment, the gas will wear off quickly and you will be able to drive yourself home.
If oral sedation is chosen, our dentists will have you take a pill an hour before your dental procedure. The pill will make you drowsy and you may not remember much of the procedure. The level of sedation depends on the dosage given.
We invite you to contact Coppell Smiles today to learn more about sedation dentistry and to schedule your next visit.
