Sedation Dentistry in Pembroke Pines
Patient comfort is a critical aspect of any dental visit, as Dr. Hugh Allen wants every patient to have a positive experience at our practice. We offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to help you relax when you visit us. Allen Dental provides dental sedation in Pembroke Pines, Miramar, and the surrounding communities.
One of the options for sedation that we provider is nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. This treatment creates a mild sensation of euphoria, allowing patients to relax during their dental appointment without having their motor skills, consciousness, or other faculties affected.
As a lighter form of relaxation, nitrous oxide offers a few advantages for most patients. First, laughing gas wears off quickly. Patients finish their appointment while relaxed and are able to drive themselves home only a few minutes afterwards. Second, there are very few side effects associated with this analgesic, allowing us to use it with both adults and children. Third, nitrous can be supplied consistently throughout a dental appointment, enabling patients to maintain a stable state of euphoria. Our Pembroke Pines practice makes sure you are comfortable throughout the whole appointment.
Oral Conscious Sedation
For patients who require a deeper state of relaxation, we provide oral conscious sedation. This form of sedation involves taking a relaxant in pill form before your appointment, causing you to enter a deep state of relaxation from the time your appointment begins.
This relaxation is meant to last throughout the dental appointment, but often lasts for a little while longer afterwards. As such, patients will need someone to drive them to and from the appointment.
Easing Dental Fears
Sedation also helps Dr. Allen see patients with dental anxieties and phobias.
The unfortunate reality is that dental anxieties and phobias are a very common occurrence, often caused by poor previous experiences. These fears are then triggered by any visit to the dentist, causing hesitation to receive vital oral health care. By using the appropriate sedation to overcome these negative reactions, Allen Dental helps patient get the care they need and experience dentistry in a positive light.
