Anyone that has a little anxiety or a huge amount of dental anxiety, they would want to know about oral sedation or nitrous oxide sedation. We have that in our office. What we do is it's an option for our patients. If you'd like to be able to have the comfort of knowing that you can sleep through it all, we can do that with a combination of pills. You have a loved one, a family member, bringing you in the office, and we help you take the pills and go to sleep, then we do all the dentistry that you have requested prior in the visit before. Then you wake up, and it's all done. Those are our most appreciative patients because most of the time we're improving their smile at the same time.
Now, the ones who feel like they don't have to sleep but want to be able to relax, then the nitrous oxide is ideal. It's something that you're just breathing in while you're here in the dental chair in the dental office, and it helps you feel like you're at a party having a good time, and you don't want to leave. Most of our patients say they want to bring home a doggy bag with them. They want to bring it home. It's so relaxing. It's a wonderful way to ... You don't fall asleep, but you're totally relaxed.
Our dentists offer safe sedation options at Your All American Smile Center for a number of reasons. If you are nervous to visit the dentist, like 75 percent of Americans, this calming solution can:
- Help you relax while receiving the treatment you need
- Allow you to experience improved oral and overall health after receiving treatment
- Ensure you feel better about returning to visit us to receive further dental care
As the statistic above proves, you are certainly not alone when it comes to dealing with dental anxiety. It’s a big deal, and Dr. Oser, Dr. Pickett, and our staff want to make it go away for good. If you’ve had a traumatic experience in the past that’s preventing you from seeking the care you deserve, it’s definitely time to discover how we can change the way you feel about dentists.

Providing The Most Beneficial Sedation Option For You
Our Keller, TX office offers two forms of safe sedation options. While you’re with us, our doctors will discuss your concerns and treatment and then determine the best sedation option for you. These options include:
Commonly known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a quick and easy way to help you completely relax. You simply breathe it in through a comfortable nasal mask. Your anxiety level drops, you feel no discomfort, and because nitrous oxide wears off quickly, you can get right back to your day! Nitrous oxide is also beneficial in soothing younger patients who may be nervous to visit the dentist.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Taken in pill form, this form of sedation helps you become fully relaxed before your appointment. You’ll need someone to drive you, since drowsiness – and total peace of mind – occur quite quickly. The benefits of oral conscious sedation include:
- Zero anxiety or nervousness during your treatment
- Your ability to communicate with our staff if you have any questions, needs, or concerns
- Our ability to perform multiple treatments during a single visit while you remain comfortable
Your vital signs will be monitored throughout your treatment, and we will make sure you remain comfortable after your treatment. By the next evening, you’ll be ready to get back to your regular schedule at our Keller, TX office.
Your All American Smile Center, Dr. Hugh W. Oser, Jr continues his education courses at The Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation to be able to provide the highest quality care for patients when it comes to sedation.
Ensuring Your Comfort In Addition To Sedation
Our doctors will also numb sensitive areas of your mouth before beginning treatment, using either:
- Topical anesthesia, which is simply swabbed on your tooth to numb it and prep you for any restorative dentistry procedures
- Injected anesthesia, which only involves a slight poke to completely eliminate any discomfort you may feel during more involved procedures
