Dental fear is all too real and keeps thousands of people from getting the routine dental care they need. At Vivid Dental in Houston, Texas, we can turn stressful dental visits into serene experiences through sedation dentistry. Our dental sedation services take the fear out of dental care to make it easy to receive stress-free dental treatments.
If fear, anxiety and stress are keeping you from seeing a dentist, you could be a candidate for sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry makes use of special medication to help people relax for their dental procedures. Our dental sedation services are available in different forms to coincide with your treatment.
Nitrous oxide or laughing gas can be used for conservative treatments such as dental cleanings or fillings. It involves inhaling gas from a mask at the start of your procedure. The gas starts working immediately to help you relax and wears out quickly once your procedure is done. It’s safe enough to use for children.
Oral sedation involves taking a pill about an hour or so before your treatment. The pill makes you drowsy, so you feel relaxed during your procedure. It can relieve the stress of undergoing a root canal, dental extraction, dental crown or similar treatment.
IV sedation is given directly into your bloodstream and is often reserved for more complex dental treatments like oral surgery. Dr. Monti Harpalani can control the dosage to ensure you’re comfortable during treatment.
In addition to sedation, Dr. Harpalani may use anesthesia to keep you comfortable during your treatment.
Sedation dentistry paves the way for you to enjoy stress-free dentistry services regardless of your treatment. It:
