Sedation/Comfort

Nervous about your next cleaning? Some patients find it hard to have even a routine dental cleaning performed because of sensitivity. Ask about our nitrous oxide option for your appointments with our hygienist or dentist.

Feel comfortable at your next appointment with sedation dentistry. 

Dental anxiety can keep you from receiving the dental care you truly need and deserve, but this doesn’t have to be the case. If you’re in need of dental care but have been avoiding the dentist because of fear, explore the different sedation dentistry options available at Lovejoy Dentistry near Allen, Texas.

The most common forms of sedation used in dentistry are inhalation, oral, and intravenous sedation. While making dentistry much easier for you, it is important to understand that they are not pain-killers, and regular numbing medications still prove essential. But sedation will make every part of your treatment more enjoyable if you're anxious.

Experience complete relaxation...

Alex Rouse, DDS, FADI, PA studied side-by-side with Dr. Stanley Malamed, the man who wrote the book (literally) on the techniques used today in parenteral (I.V.) sedation. He is one of an elite group of general practitioners who perform this level of sedation, in addition to offering oral conscious sedation.

Please call today to find out about all of the benefits of having sedation incorporated with your dental treatment.


Oral Sedation

Anxiety prevents up to 50% of the population from getting needed dental care. Simple oral medications taken shortly before an appointment can take the edge off, removing the barrier to a healthier you.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, an inhalation sedative, brings one of the safest and easiest sedation techniques to nearly any procedure. Patients from young to old may benefit from a dose obtained just by breathing in and out.

IV Sedation

Sometimes anxiety about dental treatment keeps treatment from being completed, leading to further problems.  If nearly falling asleep during treatment and waking up at the end would make it possible, then IV sedation might work for you.
