We are an opioid- and narcotic-free practice. As a father himself, Dr. Everett does not feel it’s necessary to administer opioids and narcotics such as fentanyl or propofol to you or your child. This is even more important with the rise in the opioid epidemic afflicting our nation.

Still, even people who don’t normally feel anxious visiting the dentist can be a bit nervous about some of the procedures we perform at High Plains Periodontics and Implant Dentistry. It’s totally understandable! Fortunately we have sedation options in Lubbock that will help make your time with us less stressful. As a result, you can:

  • Get the treatments you need to achieve better oral health
  • Visit the dentist without a great deal of anxiety
  • Block out uncomfortable sounds, smells, and sights
  • Remain relaxed throughout your treatment
  • Achieve the smile you’ve always wanted
  • Choose from three kinds of sedation

Call 806-507-6906 for an appointment. With the advances we have made before, during, and after the procedure, many of our patients report a low to minimal discomfort after oral surgery. Many take over the counter medication to alleviate their discomfort. We’ll ensure you have all of the information you need for a smooth and comfortable recovery.

Enjoy Worry-Free Dentistry With Sedation

Whether you are getting an implant placement or another oral surgery procedure, you have no reason to feel nervous while you are with us. Taking advantage of our sedation options can make your treatment less stressful and easier to get through.

Our options include:

  • Laughing Gas Sedation – This fast-acting form of sedation gives you a sense of calm when you breathe it in through a mask. It doesn’t have any lingering effects. So unlike our other forms of sedation, you won’t feel groggy.
  • Oral Sedative – If you feel particularly anxious about a procedure, we can prescribe a small pill for you to take before your appointment.
  • IV Sedation – This is most commonly used for oral surgery procedures. It will give you a sense of calm throughout your time with us.

If you receive IV or oral sedation, you will need to arrange for a ride home after your procedure. You will likely have a lingering grogginess that limits your ability to drive.

In addition to our sedation, we also have comforting amenities like blankets and pillows. You can also listen to music or watch TV using headphones to block out the sounds around you.

Choose sedation in Lubbock for an easier experience at the dentist. Call 806-507-6906 for an appointment or schedule online. Take advantage of our membership plan for more affordable dental care. With hours as early as 7 a.m. and as late as 6 p.m.,  you can visit our office at times that suit your schedule.
