Should You Choose Sedation Dentistry?

Does the thought of the dentist make you cringe? Considering sedation dentistry but not sure if it is right for you? We often recommend sedation dentistry for:

  • Patients who need extensive dental work done.
  • Patients with a pharyngeal reflex.
  • Patients who have sensitive teeth.
  • Patients who experience dental anxiety/phobias.
  • Patients who have a low pain tolerance.
  • Children who are not quite used to the dentist yet.

Sedation Dentistry for Mild Anxiety

Houston Laughing Gas Sedation – For those with mild to moderate dental anxiety, laughing gas sedation can be a great option. With laughing gas, the patient remains completely awake, capable of interacting with our staff while in a state of relaxation and calmness. Those that opt for laughing gas sedation in Houston can drive themselves and continue about their day normally.

Sedation Dentistry for Severe Anxiety

Houston Oral Sedation – For those with more severe dental anxiety, oral sedation can help to provide an even more relaxed experience. Medication will be provided prior to treatment (about an hour before), leaving the patient in a relaxed state. Patients that opt for oral sedation in Houston will need someone to drive them home from their appointment.

Houston IV Sedation – For patients with severe dental anxiety, IV sedation is an extremely quick and effective method of sedation dentistry. With IV Sedation, most patients report remembering nothing from their treatment, just waking up with a healthier smile.
