Whether you need a simple restoration or a complex treatment, we can help you stay comfortable with the use of sedation options. While sedation is usually used for more invasive procedures, it is also an option for patients who have dental anxiety or special needs patients. If you have any concerns, ask us if sedation dentistry is right for you.(281) 559-7019
At Atascocita Family Smiles, we offer the following sedation options:
A local anesthetic is injected into the area where treatment will be taking place. Local anesthesia lasts up to several hours and is a great option for virtually pain-free treatments.
Oral sedation is taken as a liquid or pill. It produces a relaxed state to help a patient relax. Patients who receive this type of sedation are still awake and are able to speak and respond. A ride home will be necessary.
This treatment involves administering a sedative directly into the bloodstream via an IV. This is highly effective for patients with dental anxiety, as it goes into effect almost immediately. A ride home will be necessary.
General Anesthesia is typically used for more serious, longer procedures. The patient will be in a deep state of sleep. A ride home will be necessary.
This gas is administered through a small mask placed over the nose. This treatment has a calming effect that helps anxious patients relax. The effects wear off almost immediately.
Yes, our sedation treatments are very safe. Sedation is endorsed by the American Dental Association and is a safe and effective way to help patients stay comfortable and during dental treatment.
