You can relax knowing that your dental care is in the best hands possible.

Dental anxiety is common in many patients. At South Shreveport Dental we want to make sure you’re relaxed and comfortable during your visit.

Oral Sedation

If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Simpson may recommend oral sedation. These anti-anxiety pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid.

Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Bring a friend or family member with you to make sure you arrive and get back home safely following your appointment.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Unfortunately, dental anxiety can keep many patients from visiting the dentist for checkups and much-needed dental work. If dental appointments make you anxious, Dr. Simpson can administer nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) to help you feel more at ease during your visit.

At South Shreveport Dental, laughing gas is administered using a mask, allowing you to feel more at ease within minutes. If you are feeling anxious about an upcoming visit, ask about nitrous oxide. Most of our patients are good candidates for this treatment.

Don’t let the fear of the dentist keep you from getting the smile you want. Give our Shreveport dental office a call to schedule your appointment today. Dr. Simpson and our entire staff are happy to answer any questions you have about sedation dentistry.

Do chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth keep you from smiling? Dental veneers are one of the simplest, most effective ways to help transform your smile!
