Leave Dental Fear Safely In The Past

Many children and adults suffer from varying levels of dental-related discomfort, anxiety, and outright fear. In the most severe cases, these negative emotions can lead to skipped appointments and worsening dental problems that could have been alleviated at earlier, less damaging stages. At Cimarron Family Dentistry, Dr. Saremi and Dr. De Vincenzo want to offer a helping hand. Patient comfort is one of our team’s top priorities, and we offer sedation dentistry as a way to calm frazzled nerves and create a genuinely relaxing environment for your next appointment. Please contact us today if you would like to learn more or start planning a first visit here in Hurst, TX.


Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation can help patients with mild to moderate feelings of dental fear and/or discomfort achieve a genuinely calm state throughout their procedure. We’ll prescribe an anti-anxiety medication, and you will need to take it around an hour before your scheduled appointment. While you won’t be rendered fully unconscious and will still be capable of responding to our questions, many people who take oral conscious remember very little about the experience once they’ve recovered.

Please keep in mind that you will need a trusted friend or family member to drive you to and from our Hurst location when using oral conscious sedation – for your own safety!

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide can be paired with oral conscious sedation for a stronger effect or used alone for children and adults with mild dental anxiety. Most people know this substance by another, far sillier name – laughing gas! It’s administered through a mask that fits over the nose, and feelings of lightness and contentment should set in after a few minutes of exposure. Many patients prefer nitrous oxide because it provides a noticeable effect on their mental state during dental treatment without requiring a lengthy recovery period afterward. You should be able to return to your normal routine and even drive yourself safely following the procedure.
