Signature Smile

Sedation Dentistry

in Royse City, Texas

People who experience extreme fear and nervousness when it comes to dental procedures may avoid going to the dentist altogether, which can harm their dental health. To ensure that everyone gets the necessary dental care they need, Signature Smile offers sedation or sleep dentistry services in Royse City, regardless of their anxiety about dental procedures or dentists.

What to expect at your appointment?

When you come in for a visit to our Royse City clinic, you’ll first have a consultation. Our dentist will thoroughly check your mouth and find out what treatments you need. You won’t need any kind of sedative for simple jobs like fluoride or teeth whitening. But if the work is more intense, like root canal treatment, there are different types of sedation such as oral or IV drugs and even general anesthesia if needed for those who get anxious when they go to the dentist. Our doc will talk to ya about all the options and what’s best for your situation. Sometimes it depends on how tricky the procedure is too. If you got some really sensitive teeth that need more time or tough loving, they may put you under general anesthesia so you can take a nap while they do what needs to be done!

How can sedation dentistry help you?

Sedation dentistry offers numerous benefits to those who seek dental care. Here are a few notable advantages of choosing sedation dentistry during your next dental visit:

People suffering from dental fear can find reliable security in sedation dentistry.

Utilizing the modality facilitates comprehensive treatment within one appointment, which reduces the burden of future appointments.

The use of sedation enables people with special needs to receive necessary care without complications.

With limited patient memory of these appointments, the likelihood of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is reduced for individuals prone to it.

Anti-Anxiety Pills

There are two different types of Benzodiazepines

  • Sedative-Hypnotics: These drugs induce calm, including drowsiness and even sleep. This sleep state is actually a form of hypnosis which is a form of physiological sleep.
  • Anti-Anxiety Drugs: These are drugs which relieve anxiety and induce a state of calm and relaxation.

Conclusion

Signature Smile provides sedation dentistry to all our clients in Royse City, but our dentist must evaluate your health to ensure eligibility. Additionally, we require patients to have a designated driver to take them home safely as we cannot permit anyone under the influence of sedation to operate a vehicle.
