It’s common for people to fear going to the dentist, even when there’s nothing to be worried about. If you avoid going to the dentist because of dental anxiety, sedation dentistry may be the option for you. Dr. Logan Wood and Dr. Radley Robins at Conroe Family Dentistry in Conroe, TX, offer sedation dentistry to ease all of your dental anxiety and get you feeling more confident about going to the dentist again.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry can help you by blocking your pain receptors with local anesthetics or medications that can help you relax and feel totally comfortable at the dentist. When you’re afraid of going to the dentist, every sensation may feel intensified and more concerning than it actually is and sedation dentistry can help you stop stressing about the dentist. First, your dentist in Conroe, TX, will discuss your medical history and determine if you’re eligible for sedation dentistry.

Some forms of sedation dentistry include:

  • Oral Sedation- Oral sedation is applied by mouth and can be taken through pill form. This method is usually preferred because it’s easy, yet effective and doesn’t require the use of needles, and begins to work in a matter of minutes.
  • Inhalation Conscious Sedation- This method has been used in dental offices for years and is a fairly well-known form of sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide is a sedative that you inhale and is administered through a nasal hood, which is a cup-like device that is placed over the nose.
  • IV Conscious Sedation- This form of sedation has an almost immediate effect and sedation is administered through an IV in the veins.
