Dental-Phobic? Don’t Be Scared

Ever wish you could just go to sleep at the dentist and wake up when it’s all over? Sedation dentistry is the answer.

If you’re having major cosmetic dental work done – or if you should be having dental work done but are putting it off – you have considered how little you want to be awake for the actual procedures or surgery itself. Sedation dentistry puts you into a light sleep and allows the cosmetic dentists at Smile Texas to fix your complicated case in fewer visits (sometimes even one visit).

Patients who opt for this service are given various levels of conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, or intravenous sedation (for the especially high-fear folks who have concerns about potentially painful or lengthy procedures).

It doesn’t matter what type of dental work you need to have done – multiple procedures can be carried out at once, turning your smile into something beautiful and brand new. At Smile Texas, sedation dentistry allows you to get your gum disease cleaned up, have dental implants placed, restore missing teeth, get porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns, have teeth extracted, have root canals, and more.

Under sedation dentistry, patients can relax, and the cosmetic dentists can work quickly and efficiently. And, at Smile Texas, we even supply a cozy blanket and a teddy bear to make the experience extra comfortable. Take a look at this sedation dentistry video series for more details about the options available to you, and to see stunning before and after photos of patients for whom new smiles became a reality, thanks to sedation dentistry.
