What Types of Sedation Do You Offer?
At Dripping Springs Family Smiles, we are proud to offer a variety of options for patients that might be a bit nervous during their visits. For example, we offer nitrous oxide (N2O) gas. This is also known as laughing gas, and it smells a bit sweet. This could be the best option for you if you have mild anxiety, as it will allow you to relax as we provide you with the care you need. One of the biggest benefits of laughing gas is that it starts quickly and dissipates quickly, meaning that you can still drive yourself home after the visit.
In addition, we provide oral and intravenous sedation. If you are particularly nervous about your dental visit, we can use either oral or IV sedation to help you achieve a deeper state of relaxation. When you are under oral or IV sedation, we will monitor you carefully to ensure you do not have any adverse effects. Oral and IV sedation offer a deeper level of sedation than nitrous oxide gas, so you will need someone else to drive you home after your visit.
When Is Sedation Necessary?
So, when is sedation necessary? Some types of procedures are more invasive than others, but we will consider the procedure you require and your level of comfort. There are some patients who are fine with local anesthesia, and there are other situations where deeper sedation might be needed.
We will talk with you in-depth before any procedure, reviewing all of your options with you. We will also make sure that you are not at risk of developing adverse side effects due to sedation. If you have questions about how we can make you more comfortable during your visit, reach out to our team today.
