At Crown Dentistry, we’re not shocked when people tell us they feel anxiety and fear when it comes to dental visits—we’re understanding and prepared. We love what we do not just because we’re part of smile transformations, but because we see the way people feel about going to the dentist transform, too. When you visit us, we want it to feel like a second home and be a highlight of your day, week—why not your whole life? That’s how long we want your smile to be healthy, and if the amenities in our office are helpful, but you still need assistance feeling soothed in our care, sedation may be just the ticket.
Sedation dentistry is a great option if you:
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a fixture in dental offices all over the world. That’s because it’s easy to use, works for most people, and its effects can be felt within minutes. Once the mask is removed, the effects wear off quickly, too, which means you can drive safely after your appointment.
Oral sedation can be an ideal calming solution if your treatment plan includes a procedure that’s a bit more time consuming and invasive.
Oral sedation is achieved with a pill prescribed to you by Dr. Hawkins after a discussion of your health history. It’s important for us to know about allergies to other medications, food items, and conditions that may interfere with the effectiveness of the prescription. With oral sedation, you will remain conscious and able to communicate throughout your treatment, but you’ll need to arrange transportation to and from our office to ensure safety.
If you have any questions about our sedation dentistry services, or you’d like to schedule a visit with your Arlington sedation dentist, Dr. Kasey Hawkins of Crown Dentistry, we’d love to hear from you!(817) 587-8803
