Nitrous oxide is offered in addition to local anesthetics to ensure patient comfort. Just imagine undergoing a complicated dental procedure like root canal treatment, dental implant placement, or oral surgery. When your treatment is done, you have no recollection of the time it took, the pain, the noise, or the discomfort you were anticipating. At Precision Dental Center, we are pleased to offer our clients the option of comfortable, safe, and efficient sedation dentistry.
We provide sedation services so that our patients don’t feel the need to delay or prevent treatments because of dental phobias, stress, and/or anxiety. We also provide these services to clients who undergo prolonged procedures or who just want to enter a relaxed state so that they’re less aware of the treatment being carried out.
The first step on your course to worry-free dental treatment is to understand what sedation dentistry is and how it can benefit you. You can trust that our dental practitioners are there to help you handle your dental fears and advance the dental health of you and your family.
At our Oklahoma dental practice, we offer various types and levels of sedation depending on your requirements. For some, a light sedation to help with mild anxiety works just fine, but for others, who might have a greater level of stress and anxiety or fear, a higher level of sedation is occasionally needed. Our goal at Precision Dental Center is to deliver the care you require in a relaxed, non-threatening environment.
Almost all patients who are in good basic health are appropriate candidates for sedation dentistry methods. Clients with specific medical conditions or who are taking certain medications might not be suitable candidates, but this will be discussed with your dental practitioner at your appointment. It is important to divulge any past drug use or present medical conditions so that our team can choose a suitable sedation dentistry technique for you.
Also, it’s important to note that clients who are getting sedation dentistry treatments should be accompanied by an accountable caregiver who can accompany them home.
