We are pleased to provide sedation dentistry at Georgetown Dental. Sedation dentistry is perfect for our patients who feel anxious or nervous about visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry can help you feel more relaxed during your visit to our dental office. We offer two types of sedation dentistry:
- Nitrous oxide – Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a gas that you inhale during your dental treatment. Nitrous oxide can help you feel at ease during your dental treatment. Because the effects of nitrous oxide wear off within minutes of the end of the treatment, you can legally drive after your dental appointment.
- Oral sedation – Oral sedation involves taking an oral medication by mouth before your dental appointment. This will help you feel more comfortable and calm during your dental visit. You should plan on having someone available to drive you after your appointment.
Both nitrous oxide and oral sedation are safe and effective. If you suffer from dental anxiety and would like to learn more about how sedation dentistry can improve your dental experience, we welcome you to call or visit our Georgetown, Texas dental office today. We are dedicated to helping you have a pleasant, positive dental experience!
