Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Sedation Dentistry

How can we help you?

We understand that patients have many questions about their dental care, and we never want you to hesitate to contact us with your questions or concerns.

Here are some of the questions we hear the most. If you don’t get your question answered here, you can speak to any one of our staff members.

Sedation Dentistry

Modern dentistry has made so many advances in pain management!

Your comfort is our top priority. Our dental anesthetics ensure that you don’t feel anything during your treatment, and Dr. Boren is gentle and highly skilled at administering them. You can rest assured that you will feel very comfortable during your procedure.

Dr. Boren is also licensed and experienced in utilizing dental sedation to help patients feel more relaxed and at ease during their procedure. Nitrous oxide will help “take the edge off” and make you feel more at ease during your treatment. It's also safe for children who may feel anxious about the dentist.

We also offer oral sedation, which is administered through a pill, and IV sedation, in which medication is given intravenously. Both of these techniques work well for patients who may have larger treatment plans or multiple procedures they'd like to complete at one time. You'll be able to get the dental care you need, while feeling relaxed and comfortable with little to no memory of what happened during your procedure. Dr. Boren is happy to discuss oral sedation with you to determine which option will best suit your needs and goals for your oral health.

It is our mission to ensure that our patients are comfortable during their treatment. At Rowlett Smiles, we offer different levels of sedation for our patients to help them feel more comfortable during dental procedures.

Nitrous oxide (laughing gas), can help you feel relaxed during any type of dental procedure from a cleaning to a more complex root canal. It works quickly and also leaves your system quickly, which means that it doesn't interfere with your normal daily activities after your appointment. It's also safe for children.

Oral sedation and IV sedation work well for patients who may have special needs, strong gag reflexes, severe phobia, or many dental procedures to complete at one time. You'll need a ride to and from your appointment with both of these options, and you should plan to limit your activities after having these types of sedation. You'll appreciate being able to have your dental work done without fear or discomfort with little to no memory of what happened during your treatment.

Dr. Boren is licensed by the American Dental Association and has had over 30 years of experience in providing dental sedation and helping patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their appointments. We would be happy to talk to you about the different options of sedation that will meet your needs.
