Just as there is no single restorative treatment suitable for every patient, there is no single sedative approach that is right for every individual. There are different levels of dental fear, ranging from the merely nervous patient to the patient who has developed a debilitating phobia.
Knowing differences exist, Frisco Elm Dental offers options for sedation to calm slightly nervous patients as well as the most anxiety-prone. Thanks to advances in the medications used, even younger patients can safely benefit from Sedation Dentistry in Frisco TX.
Nitrous oxide is probably what you think of when sedatives at the dentist’s office are considered. Commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide combined with oxygen is delivered through a nasal mask. While the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly and the gas induces a state of calm or even joy, this commonly-used approach may not be sufficient for some patients.
During a consultation with you, Dr. Suri will determine if nitrous oxide sedation is fit for you based on factors such as your medical history. Call (214) 705-7100 to schedule an appointment and experience just how worry free the dental procedure can be!
