At Worden Dentistry, we do everything we can to help our patients enjoy their time with us. If dental appointments make you nervous, if you’re sensitive to sound or light, or if you have special healthcare needs that make it difficult to receive treatment, we’re here to help make your experience more comfortable with a selection of sedation dentistry services.
Worden Dentistry offers the top sedation dentistry services near Tyler, TX and beyond because ours are always tailored to each patient's individual needs. No matter your anxiety level, we'll assess your health history and work with you to determine the safest, most appropriate level of sedation for you!
Your Sedation Dentistry Options
We offer the following levels of sedation at our Tyler, TX dental office:
- Oral Conscious Sedation
- Laughing Gas Sedation
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation can be provided to help our anxious patients relax during treatment. Taken as a pill prior to the procedure, this form of sedation can be used as either a mild and moderate sedative. With mild sedation, patients feel drowsy, while with moderate sedation, patients may even fall into a light sleep.
Laughing gas, or inhalation sedation, is a form of light sedation and is typically offered to young patients or those with mild anxiety in the dental chair. Laughing gas, also called nitrous oxide, is a colorless, odor-free gas that is administered through a comfortable breathing mask.
Dr. Worden continually controls the amount of gas during your procedure to ensure maximum safety and comfort. With this form of sedation, you can expect to be fully relaxed while still fully awake and able to follow instructions.
Additional Comforting Amenities
We offer sunglasses, blankets, headphones, and pillows to every patient to help them feel at ease in the dental chair. If you're looking for further comfort measures, we also have heated massage chairs available in our operatories for any surgical procedure!
