Conquer Dental Fear In Pearland And Friendswood
With oral sedation, Dr. David C. Montz & Associates invite anxious patients to enjoy complete dental health.
Oral sedation dentistry has done a lot to improve dental health for countless patients. Our Friendswood and Pearland, Texas dentists want to help patients with dental anxiety feel at home in our office, and oral sedation has become a trusted way for dental patients to overcome dental fears and phobias. We also offer nitrous oxide and IV dental sedation, rounding out our sedation dentistry care to offer you a complete menu of options.
Oral sedation generally involves the administration of an anti-anxiety medication taken by mouth prior to the dental appointment. Valium, Xanax, and Halcion are often used to decrease your anxiety and lessen the strength of your fear response. These oral sedation options leave you conscious, but they can wipe out all memory of your dental visit after the fact, which many patients appreciate. If you suffer from dental anxiety, oral sedation dentistry can make all the difference between complete oral health and lasting dental damage.
Oral sedation dentistry isn’t just used in cases of dental anxiety. If you’ve got a long procedure planned or would like to have multiple procedures performed in one long visit, oral sedation can make sitting in the dental chair more pleasurable. For patients with a very strong gag reflex, oral sedation dentistry can also be very helpful.
There’s no need to worry about the safety of oral sedation. Thousands of patients have safely undergone dental care with the help of sedation dentistry, and we will discuss every possible issue with you prior to your taking the oral sedation medication. We will find out everything we can about your health history to make sure that oral sedation is a viable option for you. Of course, you should make sure you have a friend or family member drive you to and from your dental appointment at our Pearland or Friendswood, Texas dental office if you’re opting for oral sedation dentistry.
For patients with mild anxiety, we can provide nitrous oxide instead, and we also offer IV dental sedation for patients with severe dental anxiety. Oral sedation dentistry works well for most patients, so if you’re in Pearland, Texas or surrounding communities of Friendswood or Manvel and need a little help overcoming your dental fears, contact us for an appointment.
