Frequently Asked Questions
Is sedation dentistry safe?
Sedation dentistry is a safe procedure administered by our experienced team at Lake Country Dental. We offer three types of dental sedatives – nitrous oxide, oral, and IV.
Each member of our team is highly trained to safely deliver and monitor each form of sedation to our patients. You’ll feel completely relaxed and stress-free during your dental treatment.
How does sedation dentistry work?
Sedation dentistry can be delivered in three different ways here at our Fort Worth office. Depending on the procedure you undergo, we will offer you a sedative that best suits your needs.
With nitrous oxide, you will breathe in a gas that relaxes you in just minutes, but you will still be conscious the entire time. When we give you an oral sedative, you will need to take it an hour before your appointment so you can feel calm by the time your procedure starts.
IV sedation is administered through your veins and you will gradually start to feel relaxed. Some patients will even doze off and many won’t remember much of the treatment.
How long will I feel the sedatives?
If you receive oral or IV sedation, you will still feel the effects for thirty minutes to an hour after your procedure. You will need to have a friend or family member drive you home to be safe.
If you had nitrous oxide for your dental procedure, the gas will gradually leave your body within minutes after we complete treatment. If you still don’t feel comfortable driving, please have someone drive you home.
