Don’t Put Off The Care You Deserve
Trust us, you’ll need a dentist you can trust to keep your mouth clean and your smile looking its best at every stage of life. Because, believe it or not, things can get out of hand quickly. And oral health can impact your overall well-being, not just your teeth and gums. As such, we want to make sure that you aren’t subjected to any unnecessary pain and expense. It is also worth mentioning that if you are experiencing any anxiety whatsoever, we know just how to put your fears to rest with our gentle approach to dental care, along with those aforementioned sedation techniques. Let’s take a minute to elaborate on those (and differentiate between our offerings) because they are so very important to so many of our patients.
Laughing gas is the kind of sedation that is so safe that even young children can receive it while they are here. It takes effect quickly (you just breathe it in through a mask) and also wears off quickly. You can actually drive yourself home after a procedure involving this method if you so desire. But that’s not the case with our deeper level of dental sedation.
If you suffer from more intense levels of anxiety or you have a major dental procedure looming, you can take a sedative in pill form (that we prescribe) before your appointment, so you’ll arrive at our office already relaxed and primed for whatever comes next. It offers a deeper level of relaxation than laughing gas. It takes a while to fully wear off. So, plan to Uber it home, or bring a friend to drive you!
No-Fear Dentistry Is Here
We know all too well that fear often results in a flight reaction. But if you have been avoiding the dentist on account of anxiety, it’s time to come back and get your health on the right track in 2019. Working together, we can minimize your discomfort and expense while delivering the kind of care you’ll need to keep smiling day after day. Our caring staff will be close by to monitor you throughout your treatment, no matter which form of dental sedation you choose. If you like what you’ve heard so far, or even if you still have some questions, you can call us at 214-360-7261 today to talk to someone knowledgeable and to request your next dental appointment in Dallas, TX. We promise to go easy on you!
