Sedation Dentistry in Little Elm

Sedation Dentistry Little Elm - A Sleeping Woman

Dr. Suri understands that visits to the dentist can be extremely stressful for some people, and that there are many who avoid getting the dental care they need due to fears related to dentistry. At Frisco Elm Dental, we want our patients to know that we have their best interest in mind. If you have avoided dental care because you have had an unpleasant experience or because dentistry just makes you uncomfortable, contact our friendly office staff to discuss your options for sedation.

Sedation dentistry is a wonderful way for anxious people to feel calm and confident while receiving necessary treatment. The use of a safe, effective sedative makes it possible for many patients to receive pain-free, stress-free dental care. Sedation is also beneficial for those who would like to complete multiple treatments in a single visit. At Frisco Elm Dental, we are happy to offer our patients with nitrous oxide sedation.

Dental Fear can lead to poor oral health

King’s College London Dental Institute conducted a study on adult dental health in order to determine the role dental anxiety plays on oral health. Their Research has shown there are higher instances of tooth decay or missing teeth in individuals who avoid the dentist due to fear or phobia. Regular dental care is a necessary component of oral health. During visits, dentist are able to address both preventable and chronic oral conditions, often treating them before they become advanced and require extensive treatment.

Additionally, individuals with dental anxiety also tend to have other feelings that impact quality of life including depression, exhaustion, and general anxiety.

By receiving necessary oral care with sedation dentistry options such as nitrous oxide, patients not only improve oral health but quality of life.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is one of the oldest forms of sedation in modern medicine and dentistry. This mild sedative has no odor, but many people do report a pleasant taste. Referred to as "laughing gas," nitrous oxide has an effect on the central nervous system that leads many patients to feel not only calm but extremely happy. There are several advantages to this form of sedation. The effects of nitrous oxide are felt very quickly after delivery begins through a small nasal mask. A light sedative, nitrous does not cause patients to sleep through treatment. Should you choose this form of sedation, you will be able to communicate with our staff as needed throughout your appointment. The effects of nitrous subside quickly as we reduce its concentration. After treatment, most patients are able to drive themselves home safely.

You don't have to avoid the dentist any longer, nor do you have to feel anxious during visits. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Suri to discuss your options for sedation.
