As part of our commitment to your comfort, we offer sedation dentistry to help you manage anxiety and fear so that you can receive the treatments you need. Sedation dentistry helps you feel more relaxed and comfortable, giving you a more pleasant overall experience. We welcome you to call us today to schedule a consultation with our team and find out if sedation dentistry in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas, is right for you.
Sedation dentistry is an excellent option for anyone who feels anxious or nervous about their dental treatment. Our general dentists may also recommend sedation dentistry if you have had negative experiences in the past, feel nervous, have difficulty getting numb or have a sensitive gag reflex.
Sedation dentistry involve the use of special medications to help you feel more calm and relaxed. There are several types of sedation that are available, and our general dentists will discuss your medical and dental history as well as your treatment prior to your visit to our office to determine which type of dental sedation will provide you with the best results.
Some forms of sedation offered in our office include:
- Nitrous Oxide (“Laughing Gas”) – This sedative gas is mixed with oxygen and inhaled to help you feel more relaxed. This is one of mildest forms of sedation, often causing a floating or euphoric feeling. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off shortly after you stop inhaling the gas.
- IV Sedation – This form of sedation is administered intravenously (through the veins), allowing the sedative to take effect more quickly and enabling our team to control the level of sedation to ensure your comfort. While it will not cause you to fall asleep, it will help you feel relaxed during your appointment, and you may not remember all the details of your treatment or visit to our office. We will monitor you throughout your treatment to ensure that you remain comfortable and safe.
