 Sedation Dentistry

Are you nervous when you go in for a dental procedure? You’re not alone – and in the office of Dr. Charles McCluer in Fort Worth, we understand and do our best to make patients comfortable and calm before all dental procedures. That’s why we offer oral sedation and laughing gas to calm anxiety.

Why use sedation meds for dental procedures?
Fear of visiting the dentist is very common, and some people stay away even when the pain in their mouth is sounding the alarm about a cavity or other dental problem that needs to be corrected. The use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral sedation medication can help nervous patients get the dental care they need in a less stressful way.

Sedation dentistry is the term for using special medications that calm the patient while leaving him or her conscious, alert and able to answer the dentist’s questions. A sedation dentist is a dentist who has undergone additional hours of training to learn how different commonly-prescribed sedation medications work, how they interact with other medications the patient is taking, and which sedation medications are likely to produce the best anti-anxiety effect for each individual patient.
