A Closer Look at Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry could also be called “no excuses” dentistry – meaning, your fear of sitting in a dentist’s chair, watching him work on your teeth, no longer has solid footing. Sedation dentistry is designed to put your mind at ease.

Sedation dentistry offers you the ability to “sleep” through your chosen dental procedures, whether you’re undergoing treatment that involves dental implants, porcelain veneers, or porcelain crowns and bridges.

This method is especially ideal for our high-anxiety patients who really need peace of mind and reassurance that they can literally wake up and see the finished smile makeover they’ve long been dreaming about.

It’s not just anxious patients who benefit from sedation dentistry. Many of our Smile Texas patients are in need of multiple, complicated dental repairs – rather than visiting a traditional dentist and having these procedures dragged out over weeks, months, or even years, sedation dentistry allows us to complete a number of dental procedures at once, saving you time and energy.

Choose from the latest sedation techniques: oral-conscious sedation, IV sedation, or nitrous oxide. We even provide comfort items like pillows, blankets, or your favorite music. (Teddy bear available upon special request!)
