Coleman Sedation Dentistry by Dr. Lawrence Thompson
Sedation dentistry is used to help fearful or anxious patients relax before a dental procedure. Dr. Thompson offers sedative medications from his Coleman, TX dental office to create an easy and efficient dental care experience for his patients. In addition to dental sedation, we also provide a local anesthetic at the targeted treatment location to maximize patient comfort during care. Dr. Lawrence Thompson uses oral conscious sedation as well as nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” as methods of dental sedation, so patients can feel confident and comfortable when visiting the dentist.
Why Choose Dental Sedation?
Sedation dentistry is a safe procedure that puts anxious patients at ease. Dental sedation provides for a relaxing dental experience and even allows for the completion of multiple dental treatments in one visit. In order to provide you with the best results from dental sedation, we collect your medical history during an exam to determine the sedation method that will work for you.
Dr. Lawrence Thompson's Coleman, TX sedation dentistry services ease the fear that some patients associate with visiting the dentist. We greatly desire that everyone, regardless of their fears, receive the dental treatment they need for their overall health and self-esteem.
Types of Sedation Dentistry
We offer both oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide as sedation methods for patients.
• Oral conscious sedation involves taking medication in pill form to achieve the appropriate level of sedation. By using oral sedation, patients remain conscious and are able to respond to commands without experiencing any pain. Oral medication for sedation may remain in your system after your dental treatment is complete. It's important to make sure that you have a trusted adult take you to and from our dental office, if you choose this sedation method.
• Nitrous oxide sedation , also known as laughing gas, is a form of conscious sedation that involves inhaling a scentless gas that eliminates pain within five minutes of its use.
Dr. Thompson uses proper monitoring equipment at all times during the procedure. A responsible adult will be required to bring you to the office and then back to your home after the procedure.

He is approved by the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners to administer level 1 minimal enteral sedation. This means that Dr. Thompson can prescribe a sedative drug that is right for you and then add nitrous oxide gas if needed.
