Sedation Dentist in Marble Falls Can Ease Your Anxiety

Sedation dentist Marble FallsHumans have a lot of fears. Many of them keep us alive, like our fear of spiders (poison) and the dark (monsters). But what about the other common fear, the dentist? Too many adults avoid visiting the dentist based on their fear, waiting until the pain is unbearable to make the call. That’s a bad cycle, and it needs to stop — and with sedation dentistry in Marble Falls, it can. Learn more from the doctors at Ritchie Dental Group today.

Sedation Dentistry Eases Anxiety for Healthier Teeth

Few dentists in our region offer sedation to the extent that the Ritchie Group does. We understand our patients, and we think almost everyone could stand to be a little more relaxed in the dental chair. It makes our job a little easier, and your life a lot better.

We offer two options in sedation dentistry in Marble Falls. The one you choose will depend on your level of anxiety and the treatment being performed.

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a wonderful option for those who experience mild dental anxiety and those who are undergoing simple, quick procedures, like a dental cleaning or small filling. Nitrous oxide is administered through a nasal mask, and it produces a warm, euphoric feeling that will totally separate you from your fear. Many patients prefer this option because it allows them to relax in the dental chair, but its effects wear off as soon as the mask is removed.

Oral Sedation

Now one of the most popular forms of sedation dentistry, oral sedation is good for those suffering from more intense dental anxiety or patients undergoing longer dental procedures. When you choose this form of sedation, your Marble Falls dentist will prescribe you a pill you’ll take orally about an hour before your procedure. Once the effects have begun, you’ll feel totally relaxed and at-ease in the dental chair. You’re still conscious and can respond to your dentist’s questions, but we promise you’ll be totally removed from your fear. Oral sedation will also be combined with a local anaesthetic, to ensure you feel no pain in the treatment area.

Because this is a slightly stronger form of sedation, patients who choose it should plan to have a loved one drive them home from their procedure. Side effects are generally mild, but may include slight nausea or having no memory of the dental procedure — something most patients suffering from dental anxiety consider to be a good thing.
