What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a blanket term that covers a number of different treatment options. When you speak with your family dentist about your upcoming appointment and your level of anxiety, they will make a determination about which method will be right for you. For mild cases of anxiety, a mild oral sedative may be prescribed, and for other cases, nitrous oxide might be a better choice. You can read more about both of those options in a section lower on this page.

Do You Need Sedation Dentistry?

While it is normal to feel some trepidation about an upcoming appointment, especially if you know that you are undergoing a long or complicated procedure, dental anxiety is a very intense experience. People with dental anxiety may:

  • Notice that their heart races when they think about the dentist
  • Start to sweat or shake when they go to the dentist
  • Have trouble sleeping before an appointment

If you have symptoms like these, or other symptoms that are even worse, you may have dental anxiety or dental phobia. While there is no single way to get rid of these feelings, the gentle care and sedation dentistry available to you at Mesquite Dental & Implant Center will make it possible for you to visit the dentist with as little anxiety as possible.
