Sedation Dentistry

Dentist McAllen

Did you know that many people avoid going to the dentist simply because they get too nervous in the dental chair? If you feel this way, just know that you are far from alone. Even though they understand the importance of oral health, patients will often skip their routine checkups and cleanings due to anxiety, resulting in a higher risk for dental disease overall. Thankfully, sedation dentistry in McAllen, TX from Dr. Tijerina can help. Call his dental office today to start your next treatment in relaxation!

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

For those with moderate levels of dental anxiety or fear, oral conscious sedation can help you melt away those concerns well before you even arrive at the dental office. This sedative comes in pill form and it’s taken several hours prior to your appointment. Once you arrive, you should feel far more relaxed than you would typically during treatment. Because of the strength of this particular sedative, you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from the dental office.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

For those with more mild forms of anxiety, nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) may be the perfect option. This sedative is administered through a nasal mask that is worn throughout treatment. As you inhale the gaseous mixture, you’ll slowly become more relaxed and ready to receive care, whether it’s a basic cleaning, a crown placement or gum therapy. Since the effects quickly wear off after the mask is removed, you can continue your day without any interruptions.

We're Here for You!
