If you are one of those people who gets tense just thinking about your next dental checkup, you may benefit from sedation dentistry offered here at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston.
Millions of people stress out when they have to see the dentist. Some of them would rather skip the dentist altogether than sit down for a checkup. Trust us, this is a bad idea: it puts your dental health at risk.
There are lots of reasons why people develop anxiety or phobia over dental care. Whatever the cause, we want you to get the treatment you need, without needless anxiety.
We offer three types of sedation:
- Nitrous Oxide. You also know this as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for more than a century and is highly effective.
- Oral conscious sedation. You take a sedative an hour or so before the appointment. You won’t sleep, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. When the appointment is over, someone will have to drive you home.
- IV Sedation. As the name suggests, this is a sedative that is administered intravenously. You won’t sleep with this on, either, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. You’ll need an escort for a ride here and back.
Whatever it is that stresses you about the dentist, we don’t want you to compromise your dental health by skipping checkups. Sedation dentistry from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston may be just for you. People come to us from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein for complete general dentistry, and much more.
