Sedation Dentistry

Everyone Deserves A Comfortable Dental Experience

Calm.  Serene.  Relaxed.

That’s how we want you to feel every time you visit us. But we’re people too, and we understand that going to the dentist is not something every person looks forward to or commits to regularly. And that’s OK. We’re here to change the way you feel about going to the dentist with soothing sedation dentistry in the comfort of our Richardson, TX dental office.

How Can Sedation Dentistry Help Me?

When you’re nervous about or afraid of seeing the dentist, you and your smile aren’t going to get the care you need to stay healthy. Over the decades he’s been helping dental patients with sedation dentistry in Richardson, TX, Dr. Jack Bodie has worked with so many different people with a variety of needs and concerns.

He’s helped these types of patients realize and experience the many benefits sedation dentistry has to offer:

Elderly Patients — As we grow older, seeing the dentist becomes even more important to help keep our natural teeth and our gums as healthy as possible, so we can continue to enjoy the food and active life we love. However, sometimes elderly patients avoid the dentist due to:

  • More pressing medical concerns
  • Anxiety about dental work
  • Transportation issues
  • Fixed incomes

Sedation dentistry for elderly patients with Dr. Bodie gives you the opportunity to have the work you need completed while you’re calm and relaxed. You wake up to an enhanced, healthy smile.

Special Needs Patients — For patients or parents of patients with special needs, going to the dentist can become a challenge. They need a compassionate dentist like Dr. Bodie,  who has the education, experience, and state-of-the-art technology to assist special needs patients and their smiles. Dr. Bodie uses safe, sedation dentistry and anesthesia administration to help patients who struggle with a severe gag reflex, dry mouth, or overall fear of dental work.

Fearful Patients — We understand that dental phobia is very real for millions of Americans, making going to the dentist a negative experience they just avoid altogether. Fear no more, Dr. Bodie is here with sedation dentistry options that allow you to do nothing but relax while we take care of you and your smile.

What Kind of Sedation Dentistry Should I Use?

It’s always best to talk to Dr. Bodie about your concerns while we’re creating a treatment plan for you. We can figure out what sedation dentistry solution will be the most effective and soothing for you and your anxiety.

We’re proud to offer patients:

Intravenous Sedation (“Twilight Sedation”) — Our office offers our patients the option of Intravenous Sedation, also referred to as Dental Intravenous Anesthesia, or “Twilight Sedation,” for their dental treatment. This is what sets our office apart from other dental practices; it’s our niche.

If you choose the option of intravenous sedation your IV sedation/anesthesia is administered and monitored by an anesthesiologist in our office with the team you know and love, eliminating the costly expense of having your treatment carried out in an operating room or same-day surgical facility.

Oral Sedation — Along with IV sedation, there are also different “levels” of sedation available to you in our office. You can opt for nitrous oxide anesthesia, oral sedation, or nitrous oxide in combination with oral sedation. We can truly tailor your anesthesia needs for a treatment that’s safe and soothing.

We know that sometimes, no matter how hard you try, it’s impossible to pick up the phone and see a dentist because you’re just too nervous, downright afraid, or have other issues you need help with. Maybe it’s time you talked to us about how sedation dentistry can end all of this and change your life.

We’ve got a sedation dentistry solution for you.
