Arlington Sedation Dentist

Fear of the dentist is a common problem, and one that countless adults suffer with constantly. At Foundation Dental Solutions, we understand this issue very well, but we also want to make sure that people receive the regular care they need to maintain the healthy, beautiful smile they deserve. That’s why Dr. Douglas Baldwin offers multiple sedation dentistry options for mild to severe cases of dental phobia. Your comfort is our priority here in Arlington, TX, and we’re happy to do whatever we can to help you feel truly at ease during treatment.

Our sedation choices include the following:

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a great choice for patients with mild cases of dental anxiety who simply need a little extra comfort. The gas is administered through a mask that fits over your nose, and within minutes, you should be experiencing feelings of warmth and comfort as we work on your smile. Best of all, once the mask is removed, the effects wear off very quickly, allowing you to return to your daily routine without any downtime required.

Oral Conscious Sedation

For cases of more severe discomfort or fear, oral conscious sedation may be the best option. We’ll provide you with a prescription for a sedative to take at a predetermined period of time before your appointment; you’ll also need a trusted friend or family to bring you to our Arlington practice. The effects of the medication help patients enter such a deep state of relaxation that, while they’re technically awake and able to respond to commands during the procedure, they tend to not remember anything about their visit once it’s over. You’ll also need your escort to take you home afterwards and keep an eye on you for the rest of the day. By the next morning, you should be completely back to normal.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is very similar to oral conscious sedation, except that it’s delivered intravenously instead of orally. Patients who undergo IV sedation will achieve a strong feeling of peace and detachment that still allows them to respond to our team, and we’ll be sure to monitor your pulse and oxygen levels through the whole procedure so that we can be sure you’re as comfortable as possible. You’ll most likely not remember anything about your procedure, and you’ll also need an escort to bring you to the appointment and take you home afterwards.

What Our Patients Say About Us

“For the last 10 years, I had a denture that never fit right. I only wore it when I had to. After visiting Dr. Baldwin, I got a new denture that is very comfortable and never moves. I can eat anything, and I smile all the time.”
