    Sedation Dentistry

    What Is Sedation Dentistry

    Sedation dentistry is an effective technique that involves the use of nitrous oxide gas (also known as laughing gas) to minimize dental anxiety. Many children and adults have a fear of visiting a dentist or undergoing dental treatments due to a bad past experience, needle phobia, or other factors. In severe cases, it may become a hindrance to receiving proper dental care.

    Our patient-friendly and compassionate dentists understand these concerns, and for this reason, we offer sedation dentistry in Houston, TX, to ease your nerves during a dental appointment. It is particularly beneficial for those with dental phobia, a sensitive gag reflex, or a low pain threshold. We can also utilize this technique to perform complex dental procedures that demand more time and patient cooperation.

    Our Process of Sedation Dentistry in Houston, TX

    Before starting the procedure, our team will review your medical history in detail to ensure your candidacy for dental sedation. Although it is generally safe, we need to know if you have any medical conditions or health factors that may pose a risk. Our team will guide you on the procedure details during your initial consultation to prepare you for your appointment.

    The process of nitrous oxide sedation is easy and comfortable. We will start by placing a nasal mask over your nose that facilitates the inflow of nitrous oxide gas. As you inhale through the mask for a few minutes, you will gradually feel your anxiety dissipating and going into a sleep-like state.

    Our team will adjust the dosage of the gas and also monitor your vital signs throughout the treatment duration. Once the process is complete, we will turn off the gas inflow, and you will be able to resume your normal activities within a few minutes.

    Question About Sedation Dentistry?

    Recovery after Nitrous Oxide Sedation

    The procedure of sedation dentistry at our Houston practice is safe and has a short recovery time. After we stop the inflow of nitrous oxide gas, the sedative effects will fade within 15 to 30 minutes. We will recheck your vital signs to ensure that you are stable enough to drive by yourself. Although you can return to routine activities after a few minutes, it is better to bring a friend or family member along just in case.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is Sedation Safe?

    Sedation is very safe because it is administered by a professional and qualified dentist who is trained in the administration of sedation and knows how to monitor patients throughout the treatment to make sure nothing goes wrong.

    However, whenever we are administering medication, there is some level of risk involved. This risk will be clearly explained to you, but it is very low and nitrous oxide is the mildest and safest sedative that you can get so you have no reason to worry.

    This is why we carefully review your medical history to make sure you are healthy and that sedation is suitable for you. If you have any concerns about the safety of sedation, you can contact us at (713) 623-0700.
