Do you feel nervous or anxious about visiting the dentist? Do you suffer from dental phobia? Have you avoided going to the dentist because of negative dental experiences in the past? Come to Family Dentistry of Rockwall for a comfortable, relaxing dental experience like you have never experienced before. To help our patients who suffer from dental anxiety and phobia, we offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation dentistry involves using mild sedatives to help you feel more calm and at ease during your dental visit. Dr. Lisa K. Attaway offers two main forms of sedation dentistry:

  • Oral sedation: For this type of sedation, you will take a pill about half an hour before your appointment. By the time of your visit, you will feel relaxed and comfortable. Be certain to have a family member or friend available to drive you to and from your appointment.
  • Nitrous oxide: Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a gas that you can inhale during your dental treatment to help you feel more comfortable. This often produces a light, euphoric feeling, and the results will wear off within minutes of the end of the treatment.

If you believe you may benefit from sedation dentistry, we welcome you to call or visit our office today for more information. We are eager to care for your smile!
