Alvin, TX Dentist
Providing you relaxing dental treatment and eliminating the fear
Does the thought of sitting in a dental chair make your heart race? Do you start panicking during an appointment? For many people, the fear is so much that they endure the agony of a toothache than schedule an appointment with the dentist.
At Alvin Smiles, we want you to know that you do not have to feel embarrassed about dental anxiety. When you are open about how you feel, our dentists can figure out how to give you the proper care you need with minimal discomfort.
We offer Sedation Dentistry that helps you relax during your dental appointments, conquering your dental phobia.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry uses medications and methods to help you relax during the dental procedure for a better dental care experience. Also, you receive the high-quality dental care you need.
We use sedation dentistry for patients who:
- Suffer from dental fear and anxiety.
- Need complex or multiple treatments in a single sitting.
- Undergo oral surgery.
In every case, the sedation is carefully checked by experienced dental professionals to make sure you are safe and comfortable.
Types of Sedation Dentistry We Offer?
We provide three types of sedation dentistry and Nitrous Oxide sedation.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous Oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is a mild dental sedation medication. Once inhaled, it induces a state of mild relaxation. It also reduces sensitivity to pain. Nitrous Oxide is safe for virtually every patient, regardless of age. Following treatment, oxygen is used to neutralize the effects of the nitrous oxide. Once this is complete, you will be fully alert and able to drive yourself home.
