Treat Dental Anxiety in Dallas, TX
Our office and dental staff are passionate about helping patients get the dental care they need. We understand that it can sometimes be difficult for patients to visit the dentist. Whether patients have a negative past experience or a fear of dental treatment, we are here to assist them.
Routine dental care is important. We encourage our patients to visit our dental office once to twice a year. At routine dental visits, we clean and examine the smile for any emerging dental problems. Patients who do not visit the dentist regularly may be anxious about their oral health and may think that their dentist will judge them. Our entire team is here to help patients maintain and restore their health, no matter the severity of their dental concerns. Our dental office is a judgment-free space where patients can feel comfortable and confident. We aim to create a friendly office environment where patients feel free to ask us any questions or voice their concerns.
What is Dental Sedation?
Sedation dentistry is a treatment option that helps patients feel calm and relaxed. Dental sedation may be used for lengthy surgical procedures. However, we also recommend sedation for patients with dental fear or anxiety.
Dr. Huckin offers oral conscious sedation to his patients. This form of sedation comes in a pill. Patients take their sedative prior to treatment. Under oral conscious sedation, patients may be conscious but they will feel relaxed and calm. In addition, patients will feel sleepy or drowsy under sedation. Dr. Huckin will also use an anesthetic to numb the treated area, which also assuages pain during the procedure.
Sedation is a safe and comfortable way that patients can get their dental care. Dental sedation also benefits patients who have a gag reflex, a low pain tolerance, or even sensitive teeth. Special needs patients, anxious patients, or patients who struggle to sit still also benefit from sedation. Dental sedation also allows our dentists to work efficiently without distractions.
