• Is Sedation Dentistry Right For You?

    on Dec 15th, 2016

If fear or anxiety is keeping you from following through on your dental appointment, you are an ideal candidate for sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry can be found in most modern dental offices. It involves the use of an oral sedative pill or nitrous oxide gas to reduce or eliminate anxiety. Sedation dentistry allows patients to receive any type of dental service in a relaxed, carefree state. While some take advantage of sedation dentistry for lengthy procedures or multi-step restorative work, others need it just to get through their routine dental cleaning. At Dentistry of Highland Village, we never judge patients on their severity of dental anxiety – and we certainly don’t take it personally!

Sedation dentistry is used in both children and adults. There are a variety of reasons why patients have dental anxiety or request sedation dentistry, including the following:


If any of the previous situations apply to you, please let us know. We work hard to make each patient comfortable and create a relaxed environment while we care for your smile. There is no shame in asking for sedation dentistry. It is a common and very safe form of sedation with no adverse effects. If dental fear is keeping you from your routine dental care or that root canal treatment you need, your oral health will suffer and the likelihood of needing more invasive treatment increases.
