Sedation Dentistry in Oklahoma City
The prospect of dental treatment can leave even the most heroic-at-heart quivering in his bootstraps. Dr. Isaacson always uses gentle methods, and we thoroughly explain treatment options to help alleviate any unnecessary anxiety. However, if you’d still like help relaxing during your treatment, we can provide sedation dentistry.
Oklahoma City Oral Conscious Sedation
This method of sedation involves a prescribed medication taken prior to your visit. The medication we use has been tested and approved by the FDA for your safety. You’ll begin to feel drowsy once you arrive, and we’ll monitor your comfort level throughout the appointment. Oral sedation allows patients to rest comfortably while Dr. Isaacson performs one or many dental procedures.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation in OKC
Also called laughing gas or sweet air, nitrous oxide promotes euphoria when inhaled. You wear a small, nasal mask during treatment, and your fears melt away and pleasant thoughts take their place. Once the mask is removed, you return to normal and can even drive yourself home after the visit. This mild form of sedation can greatly improve routine or complex dental visits.
Consider sedation dentistry if you…
- have mild, moderate, or severe dental anxiety
- are ashamed of the appearance of your teeth
- would like multiple procedures done quickly
- dislike the sights, sounds, or smells of a dental office
- have a sensitive gag reflex or jaw pain
- have trouble resting comfortably in the dental chair
- find it difficult to numb with local anesthetic
Sedation dentistry can give you the peace of mind you need to receive dental care. You may enjoy an improved self-image and better quality of life with a healthy, beautiful smile.
