Get Comfortable

Get Comfortable

For your comfort, we offer sedation dentistry in order to relieve your fears.

At Southern Oaks Family Dental Care we use nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Depending upon a number of variables our highly trained dentists will choose and deliver the method that is best suited for your health and comfort.

Our Dentists have received extensive training effectively to deliver the medication used in sedation dentistry. We can comprehensively state most of our patients are amazed at how quick we manage to complete the procedure making it look extremely easy.

THE SEDATION PROCESS

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation, also known as “laughing gas,” is quick, easy, and involves no needles or injections. If you choose to undergo this type of sedation you will be instructed to inhale a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a comfortable face mask. You will feel calm and relaxed in just 3-5 minutes of inhalation. This sedation method is mild and very safe, with virtually no side effects. Patients return to full alertness within minutes, allowing them to safely drive and go back to work without any type of “hangover” effect.

Pain Management After Treatment

Pain Management After Treatment

We take great pride in providing meticulous care for our patients before, during, and after your treatment. After you leave our office, you will be given all the necessary tools for successful pain management. Patients who have undergone more intensive procedures like a root canal, implant surgery, or extraction will often need to take anti-inflammatory and prescription pain medications. Please contact us today to learn more about our pain managements plans and available sedation options.

Anesthesia During Treatment

Anesthesia During Treatment

Our entire staff is focused on creating a pleasant, enjoyable experience for each of our patients. Whether you visit our office for a simple cleaning or surgical procedure, we have a variety of local and topical anesthetics that ensure your comfort. Topical anesthetics are applied directly to the treatment area, resulting in temporary numbness. After the injection site has been sufficiently numbed, local anesthetics can be injected into tissue inside the mouth, like the gums, resulting in numbness for one to two hours.

Real Stories

Patient Reviews

  • They are so compassionate. I usually hate going to the dentist, its always a scary thing for me. Anxiety sets in and I usually chicken out and not go. Glad I didn't this time. They are so patient and very thorough in explaining everything to you. I would definitely recommend them highly.
