Safely Relax in the Dental Chair

Millions of people in the United States put off their dental appointments for far too long due to anxiety. Fear of the dentist is common, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for unhealthy teeth. To get the care your smile needs in order to thrive, simply call Taylor Choice Dental and talk to our sedation dentist in Taylor, TX about your relaxation options. We offer several solutions to help you safely relax in the dental chair.

Why Choose Taylor Choice Dental for Sedation Dentistry?

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

For patients who have particularly powerful dental anxiety or need to complete a lengthy procedure, we often recommend oral conscious sedation. With this method, you’ll take a prescribed pill a certain amount of time before your procedure is scheduled to begin. By the time we start your treatment, you’ll feel deeply calm, enough so that performing the dental work you need will be a breeze. You’ll remain awake throughout the appointment, but the sedative’s effects may last for several hours, so you’ll need a ride home.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

If you just need a little something to “take the edge off” your dental anxiety, then you may be interested in nitrous oxide sedation. Within minutes of inhaling this clear gas through a nasal mask, you’ll feel light and euphoric enough to feel comfortable undergoing your treatment. Afterward, the effects should wear off just as quickly as they came on. You should be alright to drive yourself home following your appointment.

IV Dental Sedation

We might suggest IV sedation in cases of debilitating dental anxiety or phobia. This potent sedative is administered directly into a vein in your arm or hand, allowing our team to adjust the dosage at any moment to maximize your comfort. Although you won’t actually fall asleep, your memory of the appointment will likely be foggy. Since the effects of the medication can linger for the rest of the day, plan on having someone drive you home and monitor you afterward.
