Sedation Dentistry – Odessa, TX

Relax and Achieve Your Most Beautiful Smile

Relaxed woman in dental chairAt Boyles General Dentistry, Drs. Franklin and Stephen Boyles go above and beyond to deliver an outstanding experience for each of our patients. We work hard to make them comfortable from the moment they arrive at our dental office, and we’re passionate about making sure every patient feels welcome and relaxed. However, we know that whether due to anxiety, stress, fear, sensitive tooth or gum tissue, or other reasons, patients may need a little extra help remaining calm and comfortable during care. In these cases, we may recommend oral conscious or nitrous oxide sedation dentistry. Contact our team to find out more about sedation dentistry or schedule an appointment today.

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

For those patients who experience dental anxiety or phobia, oral conscious sedation is an ideal option. At a predetermined time prior to their appointment, patients take an oral sedative prescribed by the dentist. Within an hour, the sedative takes effect soothing patients and allowing them to enter a state of deep relaxation. Because the sedative takes effect before patients arrive at our dental office, they should plan to have a trusted friend or family member drive them to and from our dental office. During treatment, patients remain awake but most are so relaxed that they feel like they are on vacation. Following treatment, most patients report not remembering any part of their appointment.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

One of the longest used sedative methods available, nitrous oxide sedation is still the most effective option. Sometimes referred to as “laughing gas,” this sedative probably won’t make everything funny, but it usually makes the patient feel lighter, more content, and more relaxed. It is gentle enough to use on basically anyone, including children, and it is fast acting, which means that within a minute or so, you’ll start to feel its effects and feel less stress about your dental visit.
