Overcome Dental Anxiety With Sedation Options in Fort Smith

Like an untreated cold that gets into your lungs and turns into pneumonia, unchecked dental anxiety can become full-on fear that prevents you from getting the dental care you need. For many patients, controlling anxiety is easier with sedation. If you’re ready to put your anxiety behind you, ask about our sedation options in Fort Smith.

For no-stress dentistry, call Dallas Street Dental at 479-668-3109.

Choose the Right Level of Relaxation for Your Needs

Because every dental procedure is different, you can choose from two kinds of sedation:

  • Inhaled Sedation – Also called laughing gas, you’ll relax right away after inhaling this light sedative through a small mask over your nose. It wears off fast too, with no grogginess, so you can drive yourself home after your procedure. Even young children can receive laughing gas.
  • Oral Sedative – We’ll provide you with a safe prescription pill that you’ll typically take at home before your appointment. You’ll arrive at our office already feeling relaxed and stay that way throughout your treatment. You’ll feel groggy for several hours, so you’ll need a ride home.

Sedation Dentistry Helps You Get the Care You Need

In addition to soothing nerves, dental sedation is also useful if:

  • You have a sensitive gag reflex
  • You are undergoing a lengthy procedure, or even several procedures at once
  • You have sensitive teeth or gums
  • You find it difficult to remain still during treatment
