Sedation Dentistry In Fort Worth

Categories: Sedation Dentistry

Fort Worth sedation dentistry Many Fort Worth dentistry patients have discovered the benefits of anxiety-free dentistry (sometimes called sleep dentistry). There are three main types of sedation options available in the Fort Worth area for patients to look at:

Inhalation

Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called ‘laughing gas‘ has been used in Benbrook cosmetic dental offices for over a century, because, in many ways, it is an ideal sedative. It begins to work quickly, but then wears off as soon as the Arlington dental patient stops inhaling it. Breathing nitrous oxide helps with creating warm tingling sensations and a feeling of euphoria.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral sedatives take longer to work than nitrous, but produce a calmer state for many nervous Benbrook dental patients. Triazolam and diazepam are common oral sedatives used in dentistry. These sedative medications are routinely prescribed by Fort Worth physicians for anxiety, insomnia, and muscle spasms.

Oral sedation is a good sedation choice for anxious patients who require a lengthy dental procedure. After the dental visit, however, it takes a while for the medication to wear off. It’s essential that a conscious sedation patient not drive home after undergoing oral sedation.

IV Sedation

Like nitrous, intra-venous sedation starts working immediately as the sedative enters the bloodstream. IV sedation usually produces the deepest state of relaxation. IV patients can dream away the entire procedure and wake up quiet.
