Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry In Houston, TX


Maximum people feel anxious before and while undergoing dental processes. It's normal to feel nervous or also scared when going for an appointment. We understand that all our patients aren't the same, and we have got great news! You can now undergo dental treatment in a relaxed, personalized approach with the help of sedation dentistry.

The common types of sedation used in the dental field are nitrous oxide, oral, and intravenous sedation. While it makes dental treatments much simpler, it is crucial for you to understand that they are not painkillers, and normal numbing medicines still prove to be vital. But sedation will make each step of your treatment more comfortable and enjoyable if you're nervous.

How does Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) work?

Nitrous oxide, at times also known as "laughing gas," is a safe, easy, and effective sedation agent that is inhaled through a mask that is applied over your nose to help you feel relaxed. Combined with oxygen, laughing gas lets you breathe normally through your nose, and just within a couple of minutes, you will start to feel the effects. You may feel light-headed or maybe a tingling in your arms and legs. A few patients say that their legs and arms feel quite heavy. Eventually, you should feel relaxed and calm. The effects of nitrous oxide vanish very fast after the small mask is taken off. People of every age from young to old may benefit from just a dose obtained simply by breathing in and out. Consult with the dentist whether nitrous oxide would be a suitable option for you.
