Sedation Dentistry in Cypress, TX
You know you need to attend regular check-ups and cleanings to avoid gum disease, painful infections, and complex procedures. For millions of Americans, severe anxiety wins over logic when caring for oral health. Don’t let your oral health suffer because of fear!
Dental anxiety can stem from traumatic experiences, a fear of needles, a strong gag reflex, sensitive teeth, or any number of unique factors. Anxious patients may feel more fearful as they contemplate what needs to be done to restore oral health. This causes them to postpone or cancel necessary procedures. Without proper dental care, a patient’s overall health may be at risk.
We understand the fear and apprehension people feel in receiving dental care. Many patients avoid getting proper care because of dental anxiety. Unfortunately, some patients avoid the dentist until they require in-depth procedures in order to restore oral health.
This is where sedation dentistry can make a tremendous difference! After experiencing sedation dentistry, many patients are comfortable receiving recommended dental care.
Types of Sedation Dentistry
There are more options than ever to help anxious patients. Whatever the reason for your dental anxiety, we have options to help you relax as we help maintain your oral health. Our practice offers several types of sedation to help our patients: laughing gas, oral conscious, and IV sedation.
- Laughing gas is a safe sedation method that dissipates quickly, so you can drive yourself to and from appointments without side effects.
- Oral conscious sedation is a pill that you take prior to an appointment. You will need a ride to and from your appointment, but this method can make your time in the chair comfortable.
- IV sedation is a medicine administered intravenously that helps you relax during the procedure. It does not cause you to sleep, though you may feel a bit drowsy. You will need transportation after your appointment.
Our entire team is ready to skillfully attend to your needs. Houston dentist, Dr. Anderson, is one of the professionals at our practice. He studied IV training at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine. Dr. Anderson belongs to the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
