Pain Management Options:
Options for pain management at Cox Family Dentistry in Plano include nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) and oral sedation. Nitrous oxide is a great way to reduce or eliminate anxiety for the fearful patient. It is safe, effective, and convenient! If you ever have a question about a particular technique or alternatives regarding a procedure, we will be more than happy to answer any questions and guide you through the process.
If you would like to learn more about how nitrous oxide is used in our office, or if you are interested in inhalation sedation at your next appointment, feel free to call us. We are happy to address all of your questions and concerns.
Sedation dentistry involves the use of pharmacological agents to calm and relax the nervous patient prior to dental treatment. All cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments can safely be performed during dental sedation. There are many different types of sedation, including intravenous (IV) and nitrous oxide.
Consult with your dentist before choosing which type of sedation is right for you.
What precautions do I need to take?
Before choosing dental sedation, remember to consult with the dentist. Many types of sedation have lingering effects. For the safety of everyone, patients who receive dental sedation treatment should have a family member or friend present to drive them home from their appointment.
