Going to the dentist is a source of anxiety for many people, especially when it comes to pain management. Our dental anesthesia services at Lovett Dental Meyerland Plaza include local anesthesia, general anesthesia, and sedation for dental anxiety.
Many people may not feel relaxed at the dentist, and we understand the nerves that can come with receiving oral care. However, oral hygiene plays a major role in your overall well-being. By exploring your anesthesia options, you’ll understand how we help our patients feel calm and relaxed during treatment while putting their health first.
Types of Dental Anesthesia Available at Lovett Dental Meyerland Plaza
We use several types of sedation and dental anesthesia in our offices. Our dental specialists provide sedation. Our team has skills in providing specialized care to both adults and children, as well as those with special needs and chronic health conditions.
When it comes to treating dental anxiety, three primary types of sedation exist: nitrous oxide, aka “laughing gas,” IV sedation, and oral sedation. These types of anesthesia do not cause the patient to lose consciousness but instead put them at ease and in a more comfortable state of mind. Our specialists use them for general dental procedures, root canals, or tooth extractions at Lovett Dental Meyerland Plaza.
When it comes to general anesthesia, our oral surgery specialists have the training not only to administer anesthesia but also in procedures like airway management, intubation, maintaining intravenous lines, and anesthesia first-aid and emergency response.
Our team often recommends anesthesia in cases of extensive oral surgery, such as wisdom teeth extraction, bone grafting, dental implants, and pre-prosthetic surgery. Some patients even request anesthesia services and general sedation because they have a difficult time staying calm during their procedure. Patients with a weak gag reflex may also benefit from some type of local anesthesia. This can prevent them from feeling the dentist’s work in their mouth and relax them during the procedure.
