Millions of people suffer from dental anxiety or phobia. This fear can lead many to avoid the dentist and put their health at risk. Visiting the dentist twice each year helps catch potential problems like tooth decay and gum disease early, both of which can result in tooth loss if left untreated.
At Kings Dental, We understand that anxiety can be overpowering, and we want all of our patients to be relaxed enough to come into our office and receive the treatment they deserve. We offer the residents of Mesquite, TX and the surrounding areas several options for sedation dentistry to allow them to get back into the dentist’s chair.
Sedation is a safe and effective way for many patients to handle dental phobias. Anxiety can stem from a variety of sources. It could be from a previous negative experience, a fear of the unknown, or fear of facing extensive work. Regardless of the reason, more and more patients are turning to sedation to calm their nerves and receive necessary treatment.
Nitrous oxide or laughing gas produces a calming effect that allows patients to relax. A mask placed over the nose will deliver both the nitrous oxide and oxygen to the patient. The effects of the gas wear off almost immediately after your procedure and you are free to drive yourself home.
We strive to empower you, to make well-informed decisions about your oral health through individual consultation.Request an Appointment
