Sedation Dentistry – Pampa, TX
Proof You Can Relax
at the Dentist’s Office
Being anxious about your dental visits is nothing unusual. In fact, it has been estimated that almost three-quarters of adults in the United States experience some level of fear when it comes to dental care. But that doesn’t mean that every appointment has to be an unpleasant, stress-inducing experience! To help you stay calm, Dr. Arrington can administer a form of dental sedation so that you can have your smile cleaned and treated without discomfort or worry. If you get in touch with Arrington dental to schedule an appointment, don’t forget to ask about our sedation options!
Why Choose Arrington Dental for Sedation Dentistry?
- Gentle Dentist and Team Members
- Different Levels of Sedation Depending on Your Needs
- We Make Every Effort to Keep You Comfortable
Oral Conscious Sedation
At a set time before your appointment (often the night before), you’ll take a special kind of medication. By the time someone else brings you to our office, you’ll be in a highly relaxed and rested state. We can’t adjust the level of sedation during the procedure, but we will closely monitor you to make sure you stay comfortable. Once the medication wears off, you might find that you don’t remember the treatment or visit at all!
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Some people only need a mild sedative to stay calm during their appointments. For these patients, we’ll normally recommend nitrous oxide. You’ll breathe in a special gas that will put you in a euphoric state where you won’t care about what’s going on around you. Once we’re done and the mask is removed, the effects of the gas will wear off very quickly, and you’ll feel normal enough to resume your regular routine.
