With the advances in modern dentistry many people have become comfortable with going to the dentist, but there still remains a large number of people who have fear with dental visit. Some people fear the idea of getting a shot, while others fear the sound of the drill. The list goes on and on, but thankful there is a solution to that fear regardless of its source. At Dental & Implant Center of Fresno we are among a handful of local dental offices qualified and certified to provide you with nitrous oxide, oral sedation or IV sedation. Regardless of the type of procedure or your leave of anxiety, we have an option that will best fit your need.
Who might need or desire sedation?
- Have you had a bad experience in the past that has been keeping you away from the dentist?
- Do you have a hard time sitting still for a long time?
- Is the idea of dental work just stressful?
- Do you need a lot of dental treatment at once?
Many people fear a visit to the dentist. Some fear it because they cringe at the thought of being lectured regarding the state of their teeth. Others would simply prefer to endure the aches and pains of a cavity or toothache rather than experience what they expect to be unbearable pain while undergoing even a simple cleaning.
If you find yourself overcome with that sort of fear, know that you’re not alone. Many people experience those same anxieties regarding trips to the dentist. The good news is, the team at Texas Sedation Dental & Implant Center have precisely the expertise to put your mind (and mouth!) at ease.

Your Dental Sedation Options
Sedation dentistry offers you a safe and convenient way to relax in the dental chair during any procedure. Whether you need to catch up on years of missed treatment, or need multiple restorations, oral sedation can help you relax, which makes your treatment faster and safer. We understand every individual is different, so we offer a variety of sedation options to personalize your care. Our options for sedation include:
Oral Sedation- This medication is taken orally before your scheduled procedure to encourage relaxation. You may experience minor forgetfulness and will need to arrange transportation after their procedure.
Nitrous Oxide- Commonly known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask and is very calming. The effects wear off quickly, and you can return to normal activities right after treatment.
IV Sedation- Provides conscious yet deep relaxation. We carefully monitor you throughout your treatment, and our team recommends you have a trusted friend or family member to bring you to and from your appointment.
Creating More Confident Dental Patients with The Help of Sedation
Whether you experience fear due to a previous traumatic encounter, are afraid of needles, or are anxious about the noises during dental treatment, our top priority is to ensure you feel secure and comfortable during your dental care. When you feel confident, we can complete your treatments quickly and easily, reducing the duration and frequency of your appointments.
