Do you need some dental work done on your smile? Are you really nervous? We at Smiley Dental and Orthodontics in Fort Worth, Texas can totally understand and are here to support you. We want to do everything possible to make you feel comfortable and secure.
How do we do this, exactly? Well, we have some pretty amazing resources at our fingertips. First of all, we have anesthesia. This is typically used for less intensive treatments – such fillings, crowns and periodontal care.
More intensive treatments, such as wisdom tooth extractions or root canals, will likely require sedation. We also treat many patients who experience significant dental anxiety who request sedation. We offer three forms in our office. The first is called oral sedation. This is an oral medication, prescribed and taken before your appointment begins. We also offer nitrous oxide – laughing gas – a nitrogen gas which is mixed with oxygen. Finally, IV sedation is administered through the veins, which helps Dr. Lynh Pham to easily control sedation levels. For all three options, whether you are conscious or not depends upon the amount of the sedative that we give you.
When you call to make your appointment, please tell us about your personal concerns and desires. We’ll make the necessary preparations for your visit. We’ll also tell you about any other key details appropriate to your personal needs. Call us at 817.927.1877.
