Nitrous Oxide

For patients who want a soothing and relaxed dental experience, Dr. Durga Devarakonda offers inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide. We give it to patients who want to stay awake during the procedure so that they can respond to requests and directions during the treatment. We monitor the sedation level during your treatment and the effect of nitrous oxide usually wears off within a few minutes after the mask is removed. Patients are generally able to drive home after their appointment.

Oral Conscious Sedation

People skip their dental appointments more often than you’d think because of dental anxiety or fear. At DD Family Dentistry of Carrollton, we want nothing more than to make your visits as comfortable as possible. If that means seeing a sedation dentist in Carrollton to complete your treatments, so be it! It’s one of the reasons why we offer oral conscious sedation, ensuring no one in your family has to feel anxious just to protect their oral health.

IV Sedation

If even the idea of going to the dentist makes you freeze up in fear, then IV sedation might be just what you need. With this method of sedation dentistry, the sedative is administered intravenously, or through a vein, usually on your arm. You will technically remain conscious throughout the procedure, but time will seem to pass very quickly, and you will very likely not remember a thing, much like with oral conscious sedation. Our team will adjust the medication accordingly throughout the treatment to help you achieve optimal relaxation. Once the procedure is done, you will need someone to drive you home, as you will likely be groggy for the remainder of the day.
