We know that dental anxiety is very real and very debilitating. This problem keeps countless individuals in our community from exploring options for oral health. But there is a way that we can help you if you’re one of those suffering from dental anxiety. Comal Dental offers New Braunfels, Texas and surrounding communities sedation dentistry to make visiting the dentist a comfortable experience.
We offer two types of sedation dentistry: nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Nitrous oxide is commonly used by even those who do not experience severe anxiety during simple procedures like dental cleanings and cavity fillings. Nitrous oxide is a gas that’s been commonly used by dentists for over a hundred years, and this gas induces feelings of warmth and relaxation in patients.
Oral sedation dentistry is a little stronger than nitrous oxide. The effects don’t wear off as quickly, which is why you’ll need someone to escort you to your appointment and provide a ride home. We provide you with an oral sedative, and this pill will put you in a deep state of relaxation. You don’t go to sleep; it’s important that you remain awake during most dental treatments to respond to questions and commands. However, you may find that you don’t even remember the appointment once it’s all over with!
Anyone interested in sedation dentistry can contact Comal Dental for an appointment. Located in New Braunfels, Texas, we serve Seguin, Northcliff, and beyond. Dr. David Earnest and the team are committed to your comfort and your complete oral health, so make your appointment today!
