When Mommy is Scared of the Dentist

sleep dentistry Dallas

Do you have dental anxiety?

If you are dreading some upcoming dental treatment, you may want to consider sleep dentistry.

Sedation is safe

The most important thing to know is that oral conscious sedation or sleep dentistry is perfectly safe.

At The Carrollton Dentist, we have been providing sedation since 2003. We offer different levels of sedation and a choice of medication including oral analgesics, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation.

When choosing a type of sedation, it is helpful to consider the type of anxiety (fear of immobility, fear of loss of control, fear of pain, etc), the specific procedure(s) you will undergo, the length of time needed to complete the treatment, past experiences during treatment, and any complicating health issues. Call 469-708-2049 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Melissa Rodriguez to discuss your options.

We are sensitive to patients with dental anxiety

Perhaps you have a dentist-wary child who needs. For simple dental treatments, topical anesthetics are applied to the gums and other tissues reducing sensation. If your youngster requires more sedation, nitrous oxide and general anesthesia are both safe options.

We provide compassionate care

Perhaps Mommy is the one who is apprehensive about her child undergoing dental work. Sorry–we can’t sedate you while your child is being treated–but you can take comfort in the fact that we take excellent care of our youngest patients. We make sure they are calm, and understand exactly what is going to happen. Our team of child-friendly dental professionals have been putting children at ease since 2003.

Make sure your everyone in your family sees a dentist regularly

Regular dental check-ups are important for your child’s lifelong oral health, so it is important that your child has a positive experience during dental visits. If possible, don’t let your youngster know that you are uneasy.

If he/she already knows, explain why your fears are unreasonable and why you are having treatment regardless of your anxiety. Show them how brave Mommy is because she wants her child to have dental health.
