An estimated 1 in 7 Americans experience some extent of anxiety or fear of the dentist, and for many, it prevents them from receiving regular care that is vital for their dental and overall health. Dr. Daniel Strader is helping his local Dallas, TX patients overcome their fear and anxiety of the dentist by now offering oral conscious sedation during office visits. With oral conscious sedation, patients can now enjoy a relaxing, comfortable dental visit with little memory of the treatment after it is completed.
“Dental anxiety or fear is a very real thing for many of our patients, but oral conscious sedation is helping to change their perception of dental care and best of all, encouraging them to show up for treatment rather than putting it off,” said Dr. Daniel Strader, sedation dentist in Dallas, TX. “This treatment is helping us provide better smiles for more patients, even if they once had a fear of the dentist.”
Patients who are good candidates for oral conscious sedation are given a sedative prescription by the dentist prior to their scheduled appointment. The sedative can be picked up at any local pharmacy and taken one hour prior to the office visit. During treatment, patients under oral conscious sedation are still responsive, but are in a deep state of relaxation and are not as aware of sounds, sights, and smells of the dentist office. The sedative lasts for the duration of the appointment and patients are generally drowsy for a few hours after treatment. However, once the effects of the sedative have worn off, patients remember little about their dental treatment.
Oral conscious sedation is a great option for patients with dental anxiety or fear, but also for those who have difficulty getting numb, a sensitive gag reflex, or for those who need multiple procedures completed in one office visit.
In addition to providing sedation services and various restorative procedures, Dr. Strader also provides a variety of cosmetic procedures. He is a preferred Invisalign dentist in Dallas, TX for patients who seek a straighter smile without traditional metal braces. Dr. Strader is also a Dallas, TX dental implants dentist for patients seeking a more permanent solution for missing teeth. For those who experience jaw or facial pain, Dr. Strader is a qualified TMJ dentist as well.
Dr. Strader is proud to be a third generation dentist in his family who serves patients in the Dallas area. He has been practicing dentistry for more than 35 years and is a graduate of Baylor Dental School. Beyond his formal dental degree, Dr. Strader is highly involved in continuing dental education, and makes it a point to receive additional skills and training each year. He has completed credits at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, the Las Vegas Institute for Dental Studies, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the Pankey Institute. Dr. Strader has received numerous awards and recognitions for his expertise in dentistry, having been bestowed The Honorable Order of Goodfellow by the Texas Dental Association, and also being nominated as one of “The Best Dentists in America” by The Consumer Research Council.
