Oral Sedation Dentistry
Relaxed Visits To The Dentist With Oral Sedation Dentistry in Amarillo, TX
Oral sedation requires taking a pill to achieve relaxation during treatment. You will take the medicine approximately an hour before your treatment. The oral sedation will be combined with laughing gas so that you will feel more relaxed. Patients who opt for oral sedation are very lightly sedated and more awake than with IV Sedation. We typically reserve this for limited use.
Relax During Your Dental Treatment With Oral Sedation in Amarillo
According to the Academy of General Dentistry, dental anxiety is common as 40 million Americans experience it. Dental phobia keeps you from going to the dentist and getting the procedures you need to keep your mouth healthy. Sedation dentistry uses medication to sedate you during your dentist visit. This puts you in a relaxed mood, so you can get your dental work done without the stress and fear.
