Dental Sedation Available In Pearland
Anxiety-Free Dental Visits with Sedation Dentistry for Friendswood and Beyond
Statics shows that nearly 75% of American adults have some form of dental anxiety. If you feel nervous about seeing the dentist because it’s been years since you’ve had a checkup or you’ve had previous bad experiences with other dental providers, our caring professionals invite you to make an appointment at our Pearland or Friendswood office.
At our Pearland and Friendswood sedation dentistry practices, we do all that we can to ensure that you feel completely at ease during your treatments. Our sedation dentists understand the importance of helping patients relax before and during their dental procedures. We offer patient comfort, and different levels of dental sedation to address mild to severe anxieties.
One staple of sedation dentistry is nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and it’s been used in dental offices for more than 100 years. At our Pearland or Friendswood office, it begins by placing a comfortable mask over your nose. Once the nitrous oxide begins to dispense, we recommend you take a few deep breaths. Laughing gas relaxes you within minutes. Once your treatment is complete, we’ll resume 100% oxygen so the nitrous oxide can wear off. There are no after effects, so it’s safe for you to drive home on your own.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Some patients need a higher level of relaxation. Maybe you’re very anxious or you require an extensive procedure. Whatever the reason, our Pearland dental professionals may recommend oral conscious sedation to ensure you feel at ease for your treatment. Our sedation dentists can prescribe a sedative that you’ll take an hour prior to your dental visit. Most patients remain awake enough to respond to our team, but don’t remember the experience. Because this form of dental sedation takes time to dissipate, you will need a companion to drive you to and from your appointment.
At our Pearland and Friendswood sedation dentistry practices, we offer IV sedation for patients who have dental phobias, are medically compromised, or want to complete multiple treatments in one visit. With IV sedation, our sedation dentists can safely and gently put you to sleep for your entire treatment time. Like with oral conscious sedation, we ask that you have a companion to drive you home after your appointment is over.
