Help Me – I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Houston Sleep Dentistry If you are afraid of your cosmetic dentist, you are not alone. At David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we encounter many nervous first-time dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment and earn lifelong patients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control, including oral conscious sedation medications. This allows our  patients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Dr. Montz practices gentle, pain-free dentistry. Alvin cosmetic dentistry treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up quickly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. We never rush cosmetic dental or restorative procedures.

We will do our best to make you comfortable, whether you are receiving dental veneers, undergoing crown-lengthening treatment, having your teeth whitened, or replacing your old silver fillings.

3) We provide many in-office amenities to help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during cosmetic dental treatment. Not every dental patient chooses sleep dentistry. Sometimes, chemical-free diversions, such as listening to your favorite music, provide a distraction while letting you remain clear-headed.

At David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. We are located at 2443 S Galveston Ave  in Pearland, 77581.

Afraid of the Dentist? Your Pearland Sedation Dentist Can Help

Afraid of the Dentist? Pearland Sedation Dentistry Can Help If you live near Pearland and experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, oral sedation is for you.

Conscious sedation dentistry is available in Pearland at David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. We have been providing sedation dentistry in Pearland for several years with excellent outcomes. Whether it is called relaxation dentistry, oral conscious sedation or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and very popular for our nervous cosmetic and restorative dental clients in the Friendswood area.

Though it may sound impossible, with oral conscious sedation, Houston dentistry patients can actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

Sedation dentistry is great for alleviating anxiety for our Pearland patients, and oral conscious sedation can be effective for treating or working with the following:

  • Teeth sensitivita;
  • Fear of needles;
  • A powerful gag reflex;
  • Difficulty controlling body movement;
  • Lengthy multi-procedure visits;
  • Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections.

If you need dental work more extensive than a filling; such as a root canal, tooth implant, crown replacement or wisdom tooth extraction; call David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry at 832-895-5120. When you come to our office at 2443 S Galveston Ave


Sedation Dentistry In Pearland

Friendswood Sedation Dentistry Many Pearland dentistry patients have discovered the benefits of anxiety-free dentistry (sometimes called sleep dentistry). There are three main types of sedation options available in the Houston area.

Inhalation

Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called ‘laughing gas‘ has been used in Friendswood cosmetic dental offices for over a century, because, in many ways, it is an ideal sedative. It begins to work quickly, but then wears off as soon as the Alvin dental patient stops inhaling it. Breathing nitrous oxide can produce warm tingling sensations and a feeling of euphoria.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral sedatives take longer to work than nitrous, but produce a calmer state for many nervous Friendswood dental patients. Triazolam and diazepam are common oral sedatives used in dentistry. These sedative medications are routinely prescribed by Houston physicians for anxiety, insomnia, and muscle spasms.

Oral sedation is a good sedation choice for anxious patients who require a lengthy dental procedure. After the dental visit, it takes a while for the medication to wear off. A Manvel conscious sedation patient should not plan to drive home after undergoing oral sedation.

IV Sedation

Like nitrous, intra-venous sedation starts working immediately as the sedative enters the bloodstream. IV sedation usually produces the deepest state of relaxation. IV patients can dream away the entire procedure and wake up calm and relaxed.

To schedule a sedation consultation, call David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry at 832-895-5120. We have the answer for your dental anxiety.
