How Does Sedation Work?
The methodology for sedation dentistry at Kissable Dental will vary, depending on your level of anxiety, the procedure itself, and the type of sedation that is selected. Nitrous oxide sedation, often called laughing gas, generates mild, calming effects. It is administered via a small nasal covering and allows you to feel more at ease throughout your treatment. For oral-conscious sedative drugs, you will consume a pill orally one hour before your dental procedure, which helps you achieve a moderate level of relaxation. IV sedation is provided through the veins and enables a deeper degree of relaxation. While IV sedation allows you to remain conscious, you will likely feel as though you have snoozed while undergoing your procedure. Localized anesthesia is administered into the treatment area to numb the teeth, gums, and nerve tissues and may be combined with other sedation methods.
Sedation Dentistry Reviews
I rarely ever write reviews but felt compelled to do so after a wonderful experience at Kissable Dental today! From the moment I walked in I was treated like royalty. The front desk associate was very nice and the office was beautiful and clean. He mentioned that they just recently opened a new Dallas location so everything is brand new. I was seated quickly after completing new patient paperwork and didn’t have to wait long to be seen like I have in other dental offices in the past. They have a lot of cool tech in this office, some of which I’ve never seen before, and trust me, I’ve been to all the “trendy” dental offices in town. This place has a luxurious feel to it and I was loving every minute of it. For example, soft classical music plays in your ears as you stand up for X-rays which was a nice touch. Also, the cleaning was honestly one of the best cleanings I’ve ever had. Very thorough and painless, no water spraying all over my face, etc. My teeth felt noticeably cleaner afterwards. I had a few small fillings that needed some work so the dentist replaced those as well, with no numbing or sedation! Their treatment coordinator wasn’t trying to push unnecessary work and explained all of my treatment clearly with before and after pics to justify all treatment recommendations. My favorite part of the experience was the face massage afterwards! Such a nice service at the end with my jaw being a little sore from keeping my mouth open, my only complaint is that I wish that massage lasted longer! These guys are top notch so I will be referring all my friends and family to this office moving forward.
