Sedation Dentistry Services

Does the thought of going to the dentist make you nervous or apprehensive? At Cross Timbers Dental, we offer a variety of sedation dentistry services to ensure you feel comfortable and safe during your appointment. We provide services such as nitrous oxide (otherwise known as “laughing gas”), oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation. We understand that a lot of people are nervous about going to the dentist, so don’t be afraid to reach out and give us a call. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have so that we can make your experience at Cross Timbers Dental comfortable.


Services We Offer

Level 1 - Nitrous Oxide

Otherwise known as "laughing gas", nitrous oxide is inhaled by wearing a comfortable mask over your nose. The gas helps you relax, and by simply breathing normally, you will absorb the anesthetic and quickly feel the sedative effects. It is completely safe, and the dentist has complete control over the amount of sedation you receive. When you're done, the gas wears off quickly and you’re good to go!

Level 2 - Oral Conscious Sedation

As the name suggests, you swallow this type of medication. It may be a pill, a combination of pills and/or a liquid syrup. This type of medication will make you quite drowsy, but you're still alert enough that we can ask you to bite down, turn your head, etc. However, we've found that most patients drift off to a nice nap during the procedure. This is the more popular form of sedation.

Level 3 - IV Sedation

This sedation is delivered through a vein and goes to work very quickly. Within minutes, you will fall into a peaceful sleep and feel zero pain or problems during the procedure. Once you wake up, you will feel a bit loopy, so you will need a family member or friend to drive you home. An IV is the deepest form of sedation and is typically performed for more extensive procedures (wisdom teeth, root canals, etc.).
