What is Sedation Dentistry

Are you afraid to go to the dentist? When you think about having your teeth cleaned, do you tense with fear? Does a past dental experience cause you to endure the agony of a toothache rather than getting your much-needed dental work? If so, you want to visit Titensor Dental. We provide a comfortable, exceptional dental experience for you by offering sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry may alleviate some of your anxiety, depending on your level of fear, and you can request sedation dentistry for any dental treatment ranging from a simple tooth cleaning to more invasive procedures.

Titensor Dental understands that going to the dentist may be stressful for you. If you are nervous about your dental visit, let us know. We want you to be as comfortable as possible during your dental treatment.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation is a method used to put you in a relaxed, easy, and calm state-of-being by the use of sedatives. Dr. Titensor uses some of the most relaxing sedation and anesthesia techniques available in dentistry today: nitrous oxide (laughing gas), local anesthesia, oral sedation, and IV sedation.

For IV sedation, Dr. Titensor routinely works with Dr. Ben Quenzer, M.D., who specializes in dental sedation. Dr. Quenzer is a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and President of North Dallas Anesthesia. He is available for all types of dental procedures.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

  • Less fear or anxiety during your treatment

From A Patient

First Class! Today was my first visit to Dr. Titensor's office and it was great. The staff was friendly, inviting and informative. The technology at this office is also amazing. Full panoramic x-rays AND this tiny little camera that took pictures of each tooth and was displayed on a screen for my viewing pleasure. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure my experience was top notch! Too many good things to say...!!
