For a Calm, Stress-free Dental Experience, Consider Conscious Sedation

Monday June 27, 2022

If fear or anxiety is keeping you from seeing a dentist for much needed dental treatments, talk to Dr. Spencer Hoyt, your Fort Worth, Texas dentist, about conscious sedation dentistry. At Fort Worth Dental Arts, we want you to have a positive, stress-free dental experience every time you visit. By offering the option of conscious sedation, we make it possible for you to get the dental care services you need without fear, worry, or anxiety. 

How Conscious Sedation Works 

At Fort Worth Dental Arts, we offer several forms of sedation to help you relax during your dental treatment. For most patients, nitrous oxide gas is a good sedation option. This gas is inhaled during treatment to produce a euphoric effect that puts you at ease during your procedure. Nitrous oxide sedation is safe and effective and wears off quickly, so you can drive yourself home after your treatment. Oral conscious sedation medication is also available, which may put you into a light sleep or cause drowsiness, requiring that you have someone drive you home upon completion of your treatment. 

Is Conscious Sedation for You? 

If the thought of visiting a dentist produces stress, fear, or anxiety, conscious sedation dentistry could be a solution to meeting your dental care needs. Conscious sedation is recommended for people who: 

  • Suffer extreme anxiety prior to dental visits
  • Have suffered traumatic dental experiences in the past
  • Have very sensitive teeth
  • Require extensive dental treatments
  • Have a hard time staying still in the dental chair
  • Gag a lot during dental treatment

For many people, conscious sedation takes the stress and anxiety out of seeing a dentist so they can get the dental services they need to maintain good oral health. At Fort Worth Dental Arts, we have ample experience with conscious sedation dentistry to ensure you receive the safe, effective services you need.
