Dr. Sara Chen and Dr. Robert Leedy Offer Calming Sedation Dentistry to Abilene, TX

Leedy Dental offers relaxing sedation dentistry in Abilene, TX with or without a referral to calm dental anxiety and fear during the COVID-19 crisis and help patients receive the care they need. Drs. Robert Leedy, Sara Chen, and Albert Park are raising awareness of not only how comfortable dental care can be with sedation treatment, they are also educating patients on the importance of receiving dental care now, more than ever.

If left untreated, seemingly small dental concerns can lead to systemic ones. Bleeding or receding gums can become gingivitis and gum disease. If allowed to develop, the infection and disease-causing bacteria found in gum disease can spread throughout the body causing systemic inflammation and a strained immune system. In order to ensure their patients have proper oral and overall health, Leedy Dental encourages residents in Abilene and surrounding areas to receive the dental care their health requires without delay.

Whether to minimize physical discomfort or to limit dental anxiety, the doctors at Leedy Dental offer a variety of sedation dentistry treatments including nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” is inhaled through the nose using a mask. Patients remain awake but feel calm and drowsy. Once the mask is removed, the effects quickly subside and patients are able to drive themselves home. Oral sedation may be combined with nitrous oxide or used alone. Taken orally, the effects of this treatment depend on the medication prescribed, however, oral sedation is effective in relieving mild to severe feelings of apprehension or dental anxiety.

Those in need of a routine dental cleaning or exam are welcome to receive sedation dentistry during their appointment at Leedy Dental. However, with prosthodontist specialists and a respected general dentist with decades of experience, they can also pair calming sedation with dental implant surgery, a complete smile makeover, gum disease treatment, or a tooth extraction. Implementing advanced technology for efficient and minimally invasive care, Leedy Dental offers gentle laser dentistry, on-site cone beam CT imaging, an intraoral scanner that eliminates gag-inducing impressions, and plasma rich growth factors that shortens healing times using natural materials.
