The Marshall Family Dentistry team is dedicated to helping patients feel comfortable and relaxed in our office. We start by offering care that is gentle and attentive and taking time to answer questions to help patients understand all their necessary treatments. For those patients who need extra help numbing, those who need numerous or complex treatments, and those who experience dental phobia, we also offer sedation dentistry services. Contact our Tulsa, OK dental team to find out more or schedule an appointment.
If you’re one of the millions of US adults or children who experience severe dental phobia or anxiety, oral conscious sedation may be your best option. Taken in pill form at a predetermined time prior to your visit, this sedative method allows patients to achieve complete relaxation before they ever leave home for our practice. Because of the long lasting effects of oral sedation, patients will need to have a friend or family member drive them to and from our office.
Nitrous oxide is frequently referred to as laughing gas, and it is one of the longest used forms of sedation available. Patients will inhale the nitrous oxide through a nasal mask during treatment. The sedative takes effect quickly, so we can adjust the dosage to ensure patients remain completely comfortable. Best of all, nitrous oxide sedation wears away as quickly as it sets in, so patients are able to drive themselves to and from our office and resume daily activities right away.
