Sedation Dentistry

Many patients don’t even remember seeing the dentist!

Hood Dental - Sedation DentistrySadly, over 30 million Americans put off going to the dentist until dental pain becomes a real problem. Unfortunately, pain is usually the last symptom of a real dental problem. If going to the dentist is not at the top of your list of things to do, you’re not alone: dental fears and anxieties are shared by millions of Americans who find all sorts of excuses to put off going to see the dentist.

But you don’t need to fear a dentist visit, or put it off any longer. Sedation dentistry allows all the sights, sounds, and smells associated with a dentist office to virtually vanish as you drift peacefully with the aid of sedation. Our sedation patients at Denham Springs and Baton Rouge have described their experiences as calm, soothing, and relaxing. With this process we are able to complete literally years’ worth of dental work in just one appointment, and best of all, you’ll barely even remember it!

At Hood Dental we provide several forms of sedation to choose from:

  • Nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas)
  • Oral conscious sedation

Both are used for different levels of sedation. During your consultation with Dr. Hood, you can determine which treatment is right for you.

Dental fears can disappear, thanks to sedation dentistry at Hood Dental Care. A beautiful, healthy smile can make a huge difference in your life, and sedation dentistry can get you there. Call us at (225) 667-0037 today for your sedation consultation!
