Do you dread calling and scheduling a dental appointment? At Parkway Vista Dental, one of our highest priorities is making sure that every patient that steps into our office receives the dental care they deserve in a pleasant, relaxed office—free of dental fear and anxiety. That’s why your dentist in Plano. Dr. Bita Kamali, proudly offers sedation dentistry. By visiting an office that’s equipped with the knowledge and resources to provide sedated dental work, you can be confident that our office team will make each appointment a comfortable experience.
What sedation options does Dr. Kamali offer?
Dr. Kamali and the rest of our dental team truly want each dental experience to leave a positive impact on our patients. We understand how one bad dental experience can alter your opinion on receiving necessary dental work. We also believe that one great dental experience can also change how patients view visiting the dental office. Our office offers two types of sedation for suitable candidates. When it’s time to make your next dental appointment, consider asking about these two forms of sedation: nitrous oxide sedation and oral conscious sedation.
Nitrous Oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas, is a light form of sedation that we offer. This sedative is great for all ages that may get butterflies in their stomach when someone mentions visiting the dentist. Our patients are safely administered the sedative through a fitting face mask and safely monitored during their dental procedure or treatment. Dr. Kamali can perform the dental work each patient needs while they’re in a relaxed state.
Oral conscious sedation
Oral sedation relieves more severe anxiety with a safe, doctor-prescribed sedative. This helps patients to deeply relax even before they must sit in the dental chair. Simply take your sedative orally about an hour before your appointment. By the time you sit in the dental chair, you’ll feel completely at ease. In some cases, patients become so relaxed that they gently drift off into a gentle sleep during their appointment. After the dental work is completed, patients tend to recall little to nothing about their dental appointment.
Would I benefit from sedation dentistry?
Avoiding visiting the dentist will only worsen your condition. It’s important to keep your dental appointments to maintain good oral health, even if visiting the dentist isn’t your favorite pastime. Sedation is also a viable option for patients with disabilities or special needs that may interfere with their dental work. You may be a suitable candidate for sedation dentistry if you:
- Have a low pain threshold and extensive dental work.
- Can’t sit still in the dentist’s chair.
- Have very sensitive teeth and gums.
- Have a bad gag reflex.
- Need multiple dental treatments to be completed.
- Have mild to severe dental anxiety.
