Why Choose DFW Dental Implant Center for Sedation Dentistry?

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation is the lightest form we offer, and it’s perfect for those patients who need just a little help to relax in the chair. The odorless gas is inhaled through a small mask placed over the nose, and within minutes, a patient should feel warm, happy, and serene. We keep the mask on for the entire appointment and can adjust the amount of nitrous oxide as needed. When the mask comes off, the gas’ effects quickly disappear, enabling a patient to quickly resume their day.
Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Oral conscious sedation is the answer to many people’s prayers because, with this method, all you need to do is take a pill to make those lingering dental nerves melt away. You’ll be prescribed medication and instructed to take it on the day of your appointment. By the time you reach our dental office, you’ll already be deeply sedated (which is why we require that someone else drive you to and from the dental office). You’ll likely remain awake the entire time, but your visit will seem to fly by in a flash, and you’ll probably have only fuzzy memories of it afterward.
IV Sedation Dentistry
IV sedation is ideal for patients with extreme dental phobia, who need extensive dental care, or who want to have multiple procedures completed in one appointment to save time. For this, a sedative is administered directly into the bloodstream, making a patient become fully relaxed very quickly. One of the best parts about IV sedation is that it allows our team to adjust a patient’s sedative level in real time to ensure they are always comfortable.
