You Have More Than One Sedation Option For A Soothing Appointment

We understand that different patients require different approaches to eliminating their dental anxiety. That’s why we offer you not just one sedation option like many dental offices do, but three sedation options. We’ll discuss them with you and help you decide the one that’s right for your situation:

  • Inhaled Sedation – We’ll administer this sweet-smelling gas through a comfortable mask. In moments, you’ll begin to feel relaxed from head to toe as the sedative takes effect. Your anxiety will vanish, and you’ll be able to lie back comfortably in our dental chair.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – Your dentist will prescribe a small pill that you’ll take as directed before your exam or procedure. It will give you a feeling of complete relaxation, and your cares will drift away. You should remain awake; however, some patients do become so relaxed that they doze off.
  • IV Sedation – This deep level of sedation takes effect quickly. It will put you in a sleeplike state in which you won’t experience any of the sights, sounds, or smells of your procedure. A trusted friend or family member will need to drive you home afterward, as you’ll remain groggy for a while.

Get the relaxing dental care you deserve from the experts at relieving dental anxiety in Hurst. Call Dossett Dental today at 817-270-9217 to schedule an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

How common is dental anxiety?

Dental anxiety is quite common. Nearly everyone feels uneasy at the dentist at least occasionally. Millions of people suffer from more chronic anxiety, or even outright fear. We encourage you to let us know about your anxiety when you schedule your first appointment with us. We’ll work with you to help you become more comfortable at the dentist.

How can I overcome dental anxiety?

Our compassionate team, welcoming environment, and patient-centric approach to care have helped many of our patients overcome anxiety. We take the time to get to know you. We address all your questions and concerns, so you feel more comfortable working with us. Many of our patients also find it helpful to receive sedation for at least some procedures.

Is dental sedation available?

We offer three kinds of sedation to ensure you’ll be able to select one that is appropriate for the level of anxiety you’re feeling. Fast-acting laughing gas works well to take the edge off and keep you relaxed. An oral sedative provides a deeper level of relaxation, and IV sedation will keep you largely unaware of your surroundings. All three methods are completely safe.
