Sedation dentistry has been a great solution for patients who suffer from differing levels of dental anxiety or fear. This is great news because at Hudson Oaks Family Dentistry, we never want a patient to turn away treatment due to dental phobia. There are some common questions that we hear about sedation dentistry that we’d like to address here.
What are my sedation options?
At Hudson Oaks Family Dentistry, there are two sedation options for you. Nitrous Oxide (“laughing gas”) has been used for decades for calm dental fears. Nowadays, oral sedation is a popular choice for patients. Oral medications are provided to give you a deep and relaxing calm that enables you to get the dental work that you want and/or need.
Which sedation method should I choose?
The good news is that you will not need to be the one to decide which sedation method that is used. Along with Dr. J.C. Reagan, you will determine together which method is right for your needs.
Will I be able to make one of those funny videos afterward?
If capturing a funny video of you while under sedation is your goal, then we have some sad news for you. There is no guarantee our sedation method will affect you in a way for you to act goofy. Patients mostly are groggy and tired when coming out of their sedation.
If you have more questions, or want to explore the possibility of sedation for you or one of your family members, call Hudson Oaks Family Dentistry today!
