Are you worried about seeing the dentist? You’re not alone: millions of Americans cope with dental anxiety. In some cases it’s so severe, people avoid the dentist entirely. If that sounds like you, then sedation dentistry from Shwarts Family Dentistry in Richardson may be the answer to your needs.
There are lots of reasons why people develop anxiety or phobia over dental care. It often stems from a bad experience they had with a dentist as a kid. Fear of pain may be involved, as well as a fear of anesthesics and possible side effects.
Whatever the cause, sedation dentistry has helped millions of people get through their dentist appointments. We offer two types:
- Nitrous Oxide. More commonly known as laughing gas, it may or may not make you laugh, but it is very effective. It works quickly, wears off quickly, and puts you in a very relaxed state.
- IV Sedation. Administered intravenously, it is one of the strongest methods available. It puts you in a state of deep relaxation. You will need to have someone drive you home afterward.
